Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Ellie grew up loving to sing in choir and to listen to her father play guitar. Ellie began performing solos in her elementary school choirs at a young age, and fell in love with learning to play guitar at the age of 10. After taking years of lessons and continuing to sing in choir and school musicals, Ellie decided to combine her two talents into one passion for performing.

Ryan Gustafson remembers very little about the origins of the ten songs on Unsung Passage, his profound new reflection on the emotional architecture of love, loneliness, and life at large. The songs were written during quick spans scattered between various tours of the last two years—as a supporting guitarist for his kindred North Carolina spirits Hiss Golden Messenger and Phil Cook’s Guitarheels and as the leader of his own long-evolving vehicle for a beautifully fractured vision of folk, country, blues, and cosmic American rock, The Dead Tongues. Gustafson’s third and best album under that name, Unsung Passage is a first-person reckoning with the things Gustafson, a chronically peripatetic adventurer, has seen enough to sing about. There are meditations on mortality and devotion (the flute-laced dream “My Other/Little Birdie”), on money and temporality (the banjo trot “The Giver”), and on impermanence and acceptance (the achingly gorgeous “Pale November Dew.”) This isn’t Gustafson’s idle speculation about life and the world; these are the realizations of a restless mind, of a songwriter who sings “this old town ain’t gonna watch me die” and means it. After several years in a commune in the western woods of Asheville, North Carolina, he now lives in a nearby camper, at least when he’s off the road long enough to call anything home. “When I’m traveling, it’s like walking into these different windows. I’m a witness, with my mouth shut,” Gustafson says. “The people you meet, the way the landscape speaks to you, how a desert is different than a mountain: It has the potential to bring out something you didn’t know was there.” These ten songs are snapshots in time–glimpses at the sorts of emotional upheavals and adjustments we’re all forced to face as we move from day to day and, as in Gustafson’s way, place to place. The familiar sounds of Unsung Passage, a reflection of Americana bedrock, present a comforting score for some of life’s most uncomfortable situations. But they will pass. “Ain’t it all right?” Gustafson demands at one point. “Ain’t it all like a dream?” After all that living, it surely is.

With Outshyne being on a recent roll lately, it became even better when the major market retailed magazine “Country Weekly” did an interview in its November edition. The band had a whole page with picture and the interview from writer Jon Freeman in its “Who’s New” segment. Country Superstar Chris Young appears on the cover of the month’s edition.
“Man it’s great to appear in a major magazine like Country Weekly. Be sure to go out and get a copy soon and bring it to shows for us to sign. That would be awesome.” said Waylon Owings.
Playing with an Idol: Outshyne recently signed on to play with an idol of the group… Dwight Yoakam. Outshyne will be opening the show for Dwight on Dec. 10th in Durham, NC. “We love some Dwight Yoakam. We are very excited to get to play with a legend like him” said Outshyne’s Jason Paxton

Studio Time: Outshyne will be heading back to the studio in the next month to lay down some new tracks for the new CD. “ We are very excited about the new songs we have for Outshyne to record.
