 Singer-songwriter Luke James Shaffer’s story is one of upbeat resolution through fickle times rife with ambivalence.

Luke’s congenial easy-spirited musicality traverses alternative Americana, folk-pop, soul, and the intimate singer-songwriter genre. His warm and soulful vocals have garnered him comparisons to The Lumineers, Vance Joy, Zac Brown Band , and Mumford & Sons. In July 2018 Luke released his first EP, “Volume One” in a partnership with DC’s House Studios. It reached number 7 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. Luke’s song “Siren” received runner-up in the AAA/Alternative in the International Acoustic Music Awards in 2019.


As a philanthropist Luke was able to team up with the Global Mental Health Alliance on his song, “We're All a Little Crazy,” which reached the Top 50 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. A portion of the proceeds for this track go directly to the Foundation. 


Luke's "Volume Two", released May 2020, is a step back to his acoustic roots. Songs about love and life that really capture his true sound and heart as a musician.

IT's been almost 9 years since I made a kickstarter campaign and you all helped me raise the funds to create my first ever full length album.


Well, after taking it down a few years ago at the request/advice from some people helping me make music. I decided it's time to have it back out in the world. 

I think it will be a nice bit of nostalgia (for myself too) as well as a way for people to see and hear how my musical journey has developed over time. A long time haha. 

Thank you all for your support. Whether you've been here for one day or one decade. It means a lot to me.

- Luke
