Ernest Greene shares a similar backstory with many musicians. He got a degree, couldn't find a job and channeled his energy into music instead. Greene is considered to be one of the pioneers of "chillwave," a relaxing musical genre that has gained massive Internet popularity. His first album, Within and Without, hit No. 6 on Billboard's Rock and Alternative charts in 2011. His 2013 album Paracosm hit No. 5 on the Rock chart and made it to No. 21 overall. Greene's 2017 release Mister Mellow was a little too experimental for the charts, but it still wowed fans with intriguing sounds and gorgeous visual artwork. Washed Out is also known for creating the song "Feel It All Around" that many fans recognize as the opening of Portlandia.
