Today, singer-songwriter Luke James Shaffer has dropped his new Volume One EP. His single “Last First Kiss” had us lovestruck in a heartbeat, and this collection of tracks is no different.
His website is hilarious and his social media is really great too (check out his GIFS on his Instagram) this from the site….
Luke exudes gentlemanly charm and earthy sophistication. His congenial easy-spirited musicality traverses alternative Americana, folk-pop, country, soul, gospel, and the intimate singer-songwriter genre. His warm and soulful singing have garnered him comparisons to Adam Levine, The Lumineers, Vance Joy, Zac Brown, and Mumford & Sons. We agree but we would also throw in some Ed Sheeran for good measure.
But back to this marvelous EP…. it leads with a track called “Siren.” Luke James has been known for feel-good music, and this track exemplifies that. That and his love for his wife, which make him all the more appealing. The acoustic strumming and soft piano in the background are the perfect attributes to Shaffer’s captivating vocals. The song is soft and sweet, something you would listen to on a long summer drive with the windows rolled down.
Our favorite off the EP is “How Sweet The Sound.” The track is very soft and pretty, and makes the listener want to close their eyes to take it all in. Shaffer’s voice is accompanied by a soft guitar for the majority of the song, and it ends with immense power.
We couldn’t be more impressed with this EP if we tried. Luke James has proven himself to be an exceptional artist with endless talent. We’re so happy for him and can’t wait to tall as many people as we can to get this EP as soon as you can and then put it on repeat.
