Half Polish-half Colombian guitarist Stash (short for Stanislaw) Wyslouch grew up on heavy metal before submerging himself in bluegrass and country music. His history in hard rock still manifests itself in his propensity for wringing unexpected sounds out of his guitar and belting at the top of his vocal range.
Since graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2010 Stash has been touring full-time with the progressive bluegrass band, Rounder Recording Artists The Deadly Gentlemen having released two albums as guitarist and singer of the group, "Carry me to Home" (2011) and "Roll me, Tumble Me" (2013). His resume also includes membership in The Boston Boys, Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers, and a US-State department sponsored tour with The Earth Stringband in 2011, being the first all-American band to play in the country of Timor-Leste.
With Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers in Joliette, QC at the Memoires et Racines festival July 2012

His touring career has taken him across the globe to Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Timor-Leste, Thailand, Cambodia, Korea, Japan and Laos.
Stash has shared the stage with The Del McCoury band, David Grisman, The Yonder Mountain Stringband, Sarah Jarosz, Chris Thile, Peter Rowan, Michael Daves, Darol Anger, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, and more. After nearly a decade of touring and recording, Stash is working on his first solo release as a band leader delivering his unique and edgy blend of heavy metal and American roots music, to be released in the Summer of 2015.
