Feeling a bit camera shy


Luke Schmaltz has been singing and playing guitar in Denver punk rock band King Rat for almost 20 years. He has written 8 studio albums, the most recent of which is a solo acoustic effort entitled Hell Can Wait. His songwriting is rooted in clarity of message and deft wordplay. Arrangements favor the honest, straightforwardness of punk music, which when unplugged, translates well into the singer songwriter / folk genre.
