With a lifelong commitment to music, Luke McMaster experienced early success as one half of the Canadian pop duo from Winnipeg, McMaster and James. The band’s self titled CD went GOLD in 2000 and the duo opened for Christina Aguilara on her Canadian tour that same year. Although the band dissolved in 2002, McMaster has worked steadily as a songwriter, arranger and producer since then.
McMaster is signed to Universal Music Publishing and has credits for notable artists including Rihanna with the UK’s Judie Tsuke and other notable artists & songwriters such as Nick Lachey, Eva Avila, Marc Jordan, Randy Bachman, Xandy Barry, Christopher Ward, Rob Wells and Shelly Peiken. His music has been featured in television’s Instant Star, Degrassi the next generation and on Canadian Idol productions.
