(self- released) from Jersey
Suggested single, "Elaine" (track #2)
Central New Jersey’s Working Class Hussys are the hook-heavy Americana/rock band that’s redefining roots music.
Led by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ian Patrick Gentles, the band puts out a sound that deftly blends soaring harmony vocals, crunchy guitars, and big choruses into music no other group could make. Gentles spent a dozen years as an open-road trucker and comes by his American twang honestly. As such, Working Class Hussys use Southern, Heartland, and Alt-Rock influences interchangeably to create unforgettable original songs about the lives of everyday people.
After two albums, the Hussys have recently released a series of eclectic singles (compiled into EP1) produced by Dan Konopka from OKGO (and he in on drums). They are intent that what they've come up with will blow minds and bring the group to a larger, worldwide audience.
During COVID-19, Working Class Hussys continued to write, record, and build for the future. Gentles works daily to find new ways to connect with fans old and new and remains committed to creating and sharing his music in defiance of our current circumstances. He’s been using the miracle of live-streaming to perform on Facebook and Instagram, which has infused his songwriting with new life, and is eagerly awaiting being able to play for a live audience again soon. Working Class Hussys bring the magic of the South to New Jersey and beyond. Fans of great original rock music need to get hip and start listening.
