TRURO, N.S. – A Canadian pop musician is heading to the East Coast for the first time and is making a stop in Truro.

As part of his East Coast Debut tour, singer/songwriter Luke McMaster is bringing his chart-topping pop songs to the Marigold Cultural Centre for a first time performance on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

McMaster, a Winnipeg native, started his music career as half of the boy band duo McMaster and James, who found success in the late 1990s with their singles ‘Love Wins Everytime’ and ‘Sweet Sensation.’

After breaking away from the boy band, McMaster began writing music, working with high profile artists such as Rihanna and Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees.

His album ‘All Roads’ found success through radio play in both Canada and the U.S., with the single ‘Good Morning Beautiful’ reaching the #3 spot on the U.S. Billboard AC Radio charts in 2013.

With influences from Marvin Gaye, Hall & Oates, Bob Marley and Frank Sinatra, his songs feature an upbeat blend of blue-eyed soul, jazz, reggae and pop.

McMaster and his band will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the Marigold, and tickets start at $30.
