It's easy to spot the hard hitting drums, ever present bass lines, and nostalgic background vocals of New Men Old Boys. In addition to Hustle's very stylized production the most endearing element of this EP is the true grit of Jake Hill's prodding voice, but considering the perspective of words strung together with experience and craftsmanship, ultimately, the weight of the EP is in the lyrics. These songs were inspired by a range of concepts from the fear of love had and lost to the celebration of a driving independence.
In the end these two artists have created a music collection that is neither Jake Hill nor Charley Hustle but Jay Kill & The Hustle Standard. This is the first collaboration between the folk/americana artist Jake Hill (Jay Kill) and producer/songwriter Charley Hustle (The Hustle Standard). Both creators agree that this process was by far one of the most enjoyable either has ever been a part of.
New Men Old Boys is the first EP in a line of "Hustle Standard" projects that Charley Hustle is in the process of creating with artists from RnB to Pop and Rock.
