There’s truly something special about an artist who is secure with himself, such as Luke James. There’s a palpable light in the room you can’t escape, and you can feel it when you’re sitting next to Luke. The New Orleans-bred artist, who’s been in the music industry as a writer, singer and even video bae (see Destiny's Child "Soldier" video), recently debuted his self-titled album and is currently on tour to promote its release and himself. We caught up with Luke James on the Washington, DC stop of his tour at The Hamilton for a conversation about his new album, inspiration for his music and his originality. Oh yeah, and we did the entire interview while holding hands.
