The Dead Tongues
The Dead Tongues
The Dead Tongues is a musical and writing practice of Asheville North Carolina based artist Ryan Gustafson. At times Gustafson performs with a large backing band that nurtures a 60's rock n' roll spirt that allows the time and sonic space to indulge in loose long form improvisations while remaining rooted in a slightly garage toned style of folk and Americana music. More often recently he has been performing solo incorporating the fretless banjo, resonator guitar and three finger style acoustic guitar giving way to a more traditional and primitive approach to his songwriting. Though The Dead Tongues only have a limited amount of released material and a very minimal presence on social media and the internet in general, Gustafson remains constantly active in writing and evolving as an artist.
