Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal pen an anthem for those facing an uphill battle in their track “Hustler.” Chock full of vintage funk & soul elements with gritty vocals, swirling organ pads, and commanding horn lines, the tune serves as a rallying cry as we face unprecedented times and struggle with uncertainty. Hoyer and his cohorts assure listeners that “when the world wants you to sink or swim, I ain’t goin’ under.” This is the third single off of a full-length album produced by Eddie Roberts that will come out in Fall 2020.
