Jay Kill & The Hustle Standard are an unlikely pair. Jay Kill, a folk singer/songwriter from Plymouth, MA, is the pseudonym that Jake Hill took on specifically for his collaborations with The Hustle Standard. The Hustle Standard is the name Charley Hustle, a record producer and songwriter from NYC, adopted as not only an artist name, but as the name for his production company that would go on to release seven more EPs over the next three years. The duo teamed up for the first time in 2011 to create what became the very first Hustle Standard release, New Men Old Boys, and in 2013 released a follow-up EP, Stuck on the Sunrise. The fundamental elements of any JKHS song are Jake's gritty voice; lyrics that long for times future and past; and big, emotion-filled arrangements.
