Canadian songwriter and recording artist Luke McMaster has teamed up with one of Motown’s most prolific, most respected, and most decorated composers/producers, Lamont Dozier. Together they have created “My Life Is a Song”.
The single is the lead-off track from McMaster’s new album, Icons of Soul, Vol. 1, which was released in November 2019.
“This is a way for me to honour the soul music and the Motown sound that I fell in love with and which continues to be my favourite music. These songs and the documentary remind people who may have forgotten and educates those who may have never known, about the legacy that people like Lamont Dozier have built, and that the music these individuals created in the 1960s is the foundation of much of what they are hearing in modern soul, R&B and pop music today,” said McMaster.
McMaster shares on working with Dozier,
“Working with Lamont was incredible, even just watching him sing and what he did with the melodies and other aspects of the piece, just using his instincts, are things I wouldn’t have come up with in a million years. The way he can just kind of close his eyes and tap into something is really inspiring.”
