Singer/songwriter Justin Sullivan, aka Night Shop, may be releasing his debut album, In The Break this month, but he’s far from a starry-eyed newcomer. Sullivan has been a touring drummer for the last 20 years, most recently playing with The Babies, Kevin Morby and Flat Worms. While touring in 2016, Sullivan realized that the taxing life of a touring musician was getting a bit too much and he needed some time off, so he took a year-long break to clear his head. During that period, he wrote solo material in the form of a debut EP and now, his first LP. His first two cuts from the album, “The One I Love” and “My Love,” are rollicking folky rock and roll tunes that require a massive amount of restraint to stop yourself from tapping your foot. Sullivan’s voice may not be cocksure or Elvis Presley-esque, but he sure makes a fine front-porch troubadour via Bob Dylan. In The Break paints tales of deep-rooted romance, old and new pals, life on the road, late night hijinks and just plain ole life under the great big sky.

From the album “In The Break” coming out on Mare Records September 14th.
