Welcome!!

Welcome to the official Luke James Shaffer website!

Luke is a DC based singer/songwriter/guitarist. At his live shows you can expect a wide range of well known music from Johnny Cash to Rihanna, from The Beatles to Mumford & Sons. In his original material you can bet on upbeat, energetic, hopeful and happy acoustic folk pop or "folkpopcoustic" as he likes to call it. He tries to focus on uplifting and encouraging themes when writing his original music. Thoughtful songs that will make you smile, tap your foot and hopefully hit the replay button. Check out his schedule tab to check out a live performance near you and if you can't make it out find his music on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify for some great music no matter what the occasion!

Good Day for an Update!

October 7th, 2014 - New 'No Worries' Shirts Available!! 

Hello My Friends!!
 
 So I haven't made a t-shirt available since I changed my name from "Luke James" to "Luke James Shaffer" (as an artist... that has always been my name bro). I wanted to make a t-shirt (and hoodie!) available because I thought it was time to do so! 
 
 One of you thought putting "No Worries" on the t-shirt was a good idea and I loved it! So here we have a shirt available with "No Worries"! I put the bikes on there because, as some of you know I love riding my bike but because when I am on my bike riding around I am pretty care free which puts me in a "No Worries" state of mind so... If you guys like them.. place an order! (for as many as you like!) I set the goal at 20 shirts. Once there are 20 orders the shirts will be made and sent out! So tell your friends to grab a Tshirt or a hoodie!

Grab one before its too late Here ---> www.teespring.com/lukejameslive
 
NOTE: COLORS AND STYLES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
 
PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS (who might actually want a t-shirt) WE HAVE 2 WEEKS TO GET TO 20 ORDERS (or more!) OR NO BODY GETS A SHIRT!
 
Thanks for the support guys and girls! It means a lot to me!!

September 29th, 2014 - National Coffe Day & Singing on Electronic Dubstep Albums! 

Hey dudes and dudettes!

  So today is National Coffee day according to the internets. I drank a pot of coffee this morning (like I normally do duh) but I wanted to let you know incase you were feeling patriotic. If so, go get that coffee from your local coffee shop preferably. Only get Starbucks if you live in Seattle because then technically thats your local spot. (I love Starbucks but its good to support the local peeps!!)

  I wanted to let you all know about something really quick. If you like electronic/dubstep music I've got a treat for you (although I am confused what you are doing on my website because I'm like the furtherest thing from dubstep... anyway...).  I just wanted to share with you an album I sang on with my dude Rhyno a few months ago. It's called "Validation" and I was lucky enough to sing on 3 tracks! The whole album is AWESOME but if you wanted to hear the songs I sang on you can listen to 'Thief', 'Leave This Place' and 'Tidal Wave'! I got to write the lyrics and the melody overtop of the freakin great instrumentals that Rhyno put together. He told me where he wanted the words and I added them in! Here are a couple of different ways to have a listen!

 iTunes Listen
Spotify Listen
Amazon Listen

Let me know what you think if you end up taking a listen to it!

Cheers guys!

DC Update - September 3rd, 2014 

Hey guys!!

I'll be putting little updates here on the website for ya'll to check out! 

I've been getting a lot of gigs here in DC! God is truly blessing me with a lot of options and almost too many for me to do! Which is a very good problem to have! I've been averaging 6-8 shows a week for the last few months and while it is tiring I can't complain!  

Sidenote: A friend of mine (Mike) and myself are cycling 33 miles in The Tour de Cure on September 27th to help raising money and awareness for the American Diabetes Association!! A HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated and helped me raise money for this great cause! Another thank you to the people who joined me last week for my StageIt show to raise money! After Stageit took their cut we raised just over $60 which once added to my current fundraising will put me over my goal of $250! So thank you all so much!

Until next time!
Read your bibles, Brush your teeth.

    I was listening to some of my favorite songs on youtube and came across your videos for the same songs. I must say, I have never seen you before, but you have an amazing voice. I will tell all my friends about you. Keep up what you're doing.

    I enjoy listening to your music. It fills the day with positivity and it's so uplifting. Hopefully one day, you'll come and do a show or two "across the pond" which would be totally awesome. Just one more thing.... Let me know if you need a tour guide!!
