Hi, my name is Brian K. Shaffer and I am a musician and voice artist based out of the Western PA region. I have been writing and recording music and voice overs for roughly 15 years.
I got my start as a vocalist in many a cappella groups such as the "Distinguished Gentlemen" and "Common Ground," in which we performed across the Mid-Atlantic Region in such cities as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cleveland and placed 4th at the National Harmony Sweepstakes at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. We had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such legendary groups as "The Monkeys," "The Marcells," "The Tymes," "The Vogues" and "The Contours."
As my career began to grow, i began to front a number of rock bands including (kaj) - pronounced "Cage," in which I was a founding member. As the frontman for (kaj), we were featured in a National Rock Showcase in Louisville, KY and were a feature band at the "Heart of Texas Quadruple Bypass Music Festival" - AKA "The Texas Rockfest" in Austin, TX. Our music has been played on numerous radio stations and podcasts across the US as well as overseas, including XM and Sirus Satellite Radio, The Nationally Syndicated "Lex and Terry Morning Show," The "Adam Curry (of MTV Fame) Podcast Rewind" and the "Armed Forces Network," broadcasted to our brave men and women fighting for our freedom across the globe!
Some of the songs that i wrote for the band (kaj) "Redeemer" and "Disposition"were selected by MTV Networks for use in such shows as "MTV Made," "MTV Fat Camp," "MTV Spring Break"and the new show "MTV Exiled." I have had the pleasure of working with Tony Marinacci of "Total Music and Entertainment" as a vocalist and voice over artist on 2 of his tunes and various productions. The song "Can't Take Another Day" was used for the Pittsburgh Penguins Highlights Show on FSN Pittsburgh.
I am currently a member of BMI, Broadcast Music Incorporated.
I Look forward to working with you!
