Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr. (born October 3, 1982), known professionally as Washed Out, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Life and career[edit]

Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr. was born on October 3, 1982 in Perry, Georgia, and is currently based in Athens, Georgia.[5][6][7] 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,[6][8] as well as working on recordings of dance music with Bedroom, a local band.[9] During 2008 he recorded lo-fi rock music under the name Lee Weather, but the following summer he found more success with his new project, Washed Out.[10]He soon won the favor of a number of influential music bloggers after they found his music on his Myspace page.[11] His first recordings have been described as “drowsy, distorted, dance pop-influenced tracks that brought to mind Neon Indian and Memory Tapes“.[9]

His first two extended plays were released in August and September 2009, and did 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[12] and his song “Feel it All Around” is used as the opening theme for television series Portlandia.[13]

In April 2011 it was announced that he had been signed to Sub Pop. His debut, Within and Without, was released on July 12, 2011. The album peaked at # 26 on the Billboard 200 and #89 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.[14]

Washed Out’s second album, Paracosm, was released on August 13, 2013. The first single was “It All Feels Right”, followed by “Don’t Give Up”.[15] The same year, “New Theory” from Life of Leisure featured in-background on a scene from The Spectacular Now. On May 2014, he was reporting to be working on a third studio album, but he stated “I’m figuring out the next step”.[16]

In May 2017, the Washed Out official Facebook page profile photo changed to a white silhouette of the side profile of a person’s head on a solid yellow field.[17] The post also includes a link to the official site which had been updated with the same solid yellow field with white text reading, “take a hit and get LOST” out of focus in the center of the page.[18] On May 19, Washed Out announced dates for their “Get Lost” tour, taking place in July 2017.

Musical style[edit]

Washed Out’s style has been identified with the chillwave movement.[6] He has said hip hop influences the way he writes songs.[19]
