Everyone likes to find their niche, and the music industry is no exception. Most successful musical artists create a niche in a single music genre that best expresses their personal preferences and inclinations as musicians. They do so, partly, as a response to a specific market demand. With James Luctamar, however, combining unique musical genres to create something beautiful is his life’s dream and greatest asset. 

In fact, whether it’s Hip Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, top 40s hits, or Gospel music, James can effortlessly blend two or three of the genres together and produce a melodious combination that music fans find to be innovative and appealing.

And he does all this by simply listening intently to the song at hand. While doing so, a mashup of sounds and endless possibilities are playing right alongside inside his mind. 

At the young age of only 11, James learned to play music by ear on the piano. As a result, it takes him no time at all to get familiar with both the notes and the melody. His brilliant mind is a symphony of new ideas.

In addition to the piano, James is also in his “happy place” while playing the drums.
