The Dead Tongues is the latest project from North Carolina's singer-songwriter, Ryan Gustafson. His album Montana was self-released in March of 2016 and houses an array of old-time and Appalachian folk styled songs not dissimilar to other contemporary folky heroes, Phil Cook or Daniel Bachman. The album features Gustafson supplying back porch country lyrics overtop ghostly clawhammer banjo and slide guitar and harmonica instrumentation.
