Music is a universal and emotional experience that speaks to the hearts of millions around the world. Luckily, James Luctamar understands this well, and this up-and-coming musical prodigy has dedicated his life to starting his own dynamic musical career.
Here is how it all began.
Living in Westchester, New York, James began playing music at the ripe age of only eleven, and as a kid, his musical talent was undeniable. He would play covers by ear, which is a truly coveted skill in the music industry and create his own mashups and medleys on a whim.
He initially began his musical journey on the piano and fell in love with this magnificent instrument, but he later also learned to play the drums, hoping to add to his instrument mastery.
Now, fast forward to today. James has had overwhelming success with his music on social media platforms. His piano covers of popular music have captured the hearts and ears of people all over the world. His most popular video to date has received over 130,000 Likes and retweets, with over 10 million impressions and engagements. His popularity has skyrocketed because of his innate ability to fuse together unlikely pairings, such as classical piano music with modern Hip Hop, Dancehall, Reggae, and Gospel influences.
James says he’s equal opportunity for all musical genres and has never met a genre of music that he doesn’t like. His passion is to experiment with different musical styles, blending them together to create fresh new sounds that have never been experienced before.
He also understands the level of artistry that comes with his creations. Whether it’s a song on the top 40s hit list or an authentic original someone performs on the open-mic circuit, James knows what people like to hear, and he always aims to please.
James’s ultimate dream has always been to create musical masterpieces that speak to his audience and leave them wanting more. Aside from covers, he hopes to create his own music someday that moves and inspires people of all ages.
Thankfully, for his loyal audience, that dream doesn’t seem too far from today’s reality. With his immense talent and passion for music, the sky’s the limit for James and all of his musical musings – present and those to come!
