Stash Wyslouch is a bluegrass guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Despite his heavy metal beginnings in middle and high school, bluegrass has been central to Wyslouch's life for the past 15 years touring and recording with groups such as the Deadly Gentlemen, Bruce Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, the Jacob Jolliff Band, and Tony Trischka’s Early Roman Kings.
He has recorded four albums, the latest of which, Plays and Sings Bluegrass Vol. II, was released in 2021. Conceived as a gift back to the music that has framed his career, Plays and Sings Bluegrass Vol. II is a collection of zanily deconstructed bluegrass classics.
“Wyslouch tries to approach bluegrass from completely new angles—upside down, sideways, an interdimensional vortex only accessible from within his own mind.”— Amelia Mason, WBUR.org
“Stash and his band have really broken musical boundaries by doing things that just don't seem possible on acoustic instruments.”—Billy Strings
“A brilliant and free-thinking mind”—Chris Eldridge ( Punch Brothers)
“Heavy acoustic laced with musical cosmology”—Tony Trischka
