Luke James Shaffer is a philanthropist songwriter and this is his song “Thieves”. “Thieves” is a well produced and mixed track that has a chorus that hits hard. Dynamically the song is a lot of fun taking the listener low and high. Good luck getting one of the catchiest melodies I’ve heard in 2019 out of your head. “Thieves in the night set this place on fire, free and running wild,” you’re a lucky one if this resonates with you. Definitely a track for the youthfully exuberant with a touch of edge. The arrangement is a familiar acoustic guitar meets open hi-hats uptempo rock sound that features a skilled synth solo and a rhythmically exciting bridge. Stream “Thieves” below and learn more about Luke James Shaffer.
MORE ON THE ARTIST
Singer-songwriter Luke James Shaffer’s story is one of upbeat resolution through fickle times rife with ambivalence.
Luke exudes gentlemanly charm and humble sophistication. His 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, “Luke James Shaffer, Vol. 1” in a partnership with DC’s House Studios. It reached number 7 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. Luke’s song ‘Siren‘ recently received runner-up in the AAA/Alternative in the International Acoustic Music Awards in 2019.
In joining forces with House Music Group in 2018, he found a platform that would nurture his gifts as an artist and support him in the decision to focus on only original music full-time. “They have faith in me. This is a big step that I don’t take lightly,” he says.
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.
