James Kelly Pitts cuts to the core of 21st century living with the beautiful simplicity of “Night Shift.” It’s an anthem for all of us who at one time or another feel beat down upon by working for our wages while we strive for something greater. He takes several elegant lines and sets them in rotation with each other. Lines like “I’m the shadow of a man,” and “They never said it was gonna be easy.” James shows a mastery of song craft, weaving in and out of verse, chorus, bridge, and refrain such that you can never really tell just where at in the song you are. Yet he manages to tie everything together into a very cohesive, well-sung tune.
