Luke James Shaffer Covers Marshmello

posted in: Artist FeaturesFeatures

Singer and songwriter Luke James Shaffer, routinely found at the top of our ‘Best of the Best’ charts, has dropped a new video cover of “Silence,” originally a collaboration between EDM producer Marshmello and soul singer Khalid. Shaffer pares back the song to its core, and then builds his own robust arrangement, in a single live take, creating a series of loops of his own percussion and backing vocals. In doing so, he emphasizes the quality of the lyrics and melody that are the backbone of the sleeper hit. Watch:
