"At first listen this band took me back like 10 years or maybe more when I used to check out these bands in the city in places like Lion’s Den and Kenny’s Castaways. Maybe because it’s that homegrown sound, a little reggae, a little funk, a little world jazz and rock. There is both female fronted and male fronted vocals then on
other tracks you’ll get both singers harmonizing together. some tracks have a sublime feel to it... others have a Natalie Merchant vibe... Very Laid back chill music... I really gotta check them out live... "

"12 Hour Shift is a uniquely fun band. With a flavorful blend of sounds the musicians do what many musicians forget to sometimes do, just "PLAY". Joy and celebration goes from band to audience and back again. 12 Hour Shift pays time and a half."

12 Hour Shift is composed of hard laborers, students, intellectuals, drunks, lovers, poets, drug addicts, revolutionaries and sell-outs.
As song-writers Shayna Lewis and Chris Sheard bring their unique backgrounds and experiences as children of activists, progressive thinkers, and hard-working folks to their music. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY not far from one another, blues and soul music played in their ears and hearts as did hip-hop and reggae.
Scott Shaeffer came to New York to realize his musical dreams as so many before. Since graduating from The New School he has been a magnetic presence in the NY music scene. With his thoughtful and probing approach to music, and his surgical approach to song-writing he is the foundation of the 12 Hour Shift sound.
Formed years ago the journey through music has been a slow ascent but one filled with passion for life and music and budding with greatness. Night in, night out, venue after venue 12 Hour Shift plays to the hearts and souls of all in attendence.
Where the journey will end no one knows. BUt until it does 12 Hour Shift will play honest, thoughtful, soulful music for all who will listen.
