Ernest Greene (born October 3, 1982), better known by his stage name Washed Out, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Life and career[edit]

Ernest Greene was born on October 3, 1982, in Perry, Georgia.[1][2] After earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, Greene obtained a Master of Library and Information Science degree but was unable to find a job as a librarian. Greene moved back in with his parents and started producing songs in his bedroom studio,[2][3] as well as working on recordings of dance music with Bedroom, a local band.[4] He soon won the favor of a number of influential music bloggers after they found his music on his Myspace page.[5] His first recordings have been described as “drowsy, distorted, dance pop-influenced tracks that brought to mind Neon Indian and Memory Tapes“.[4]

Washed Out’s style has been identified with the chillwave movement.[2] He has said hip hop influences the way he writes songs.[6] The first two Washed Out EPs were released in August and September 2009. Washed Out made his debut New York City performance (his second live show ever) at Santos Party House. He has since performed at the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival[7] and his song “Feel it All Around” is used as the opening theme for the US comedy TV series Portlandia.[8]

In April 2011 it was announced that he had been signed to Sub Pop. His debut album, Within and Without, was released on July 12, 2011. The album peaked at twenty-six on the US Billboard 200 and eighty-nine on the UK Albums Chart.

He was chosen by Battles to perform at the ATP Nightmare Before Christmas festival that they co-curated in December 2011 in Minehead, England.[9]

Washed Out’s second album Paracosm was released on August 13, 2013, again on Sub Pop records. The first single was “It All Feels Right”, followed by “Don’t Give Up”.[10]

In 2013, “New Theory” from the album Life of Leisure featured in the background of an outdoor party scene from the movie The Spectacular Now.
