Ice Crisis – Is it bluegrass?

stashNope. That’s an easy answer.

This early taste from the CD Stash!, expected soon from Boston-based guitarist/vocalist Stash Wyslouch – late of The Deadly Gentlemen – explores Wyslouch’s personal musical experiment with acoustic metal.

Prior to coming to bluegrass, Stash was consumed with rock and metal music. Part of the theme of his upcoming solo project involves recordings of his originals with an acoustic backing band, and a drummer. Though it isn’t bluegrass, even the percussion comes from a grassy place. It’s laid down by Sean Trischka, son of banjo legend Tony.

In this static video, you can sample Stash’s acoustic metal vibe on a song he wrote, Ice Crisis, giving his take on the hotly-debated topic of climate change.


Look for Stash! to be released independently on September 15.
