Jason Hausman:

Jason Hausman is a singer-songwriter based in Charlotte, NC. His award-winning music has been featured TV shows, documentaries, film scores, art installations, children’s toys, and commercials including Super Bowl ads. He has created music and sound design for hundreds of clients (Carmax, PBS, Sony Pictures, Paramount, and Discovery etc) and has produced projects featuring artists such as Maria Howell, Steve Rothery (Marillion) and seminal rap artist Snoop Dogg. Hausman’s music is infused with hints of rock, trip-hop, ambient and classical stylings fueled by his ever-evolving band The Shallow Sea.

Sunshone Still:

Boring names are, well, boring. So before releasing his critically-acclaimed lo-fi debut, Dead Letters, in 2005, Columbia, SC-based singer-songwriter, Chris Smith adopted Sunshone Still as his musical nom de plume. The name was lifted from the lyrics of Nick Drake’s Place To Be.

And I was green, greener than the hill

Where flowers grew and the sun shone still

Now I'm darker than the deepest sea

Just hand me down, give me a place to be

To date, Smith has released four full-length albums and one self-titled EP under the Sunshone Still moniker: Dead Letters, Ten Cent American Novels, ThewaytheworldDies, and Two Crossed Stars.

On June 16, 2023, the newest full-length album, Two Crossed Stars was released. This 10-song collection was entirely written, composed, arranged, performed, recorded, mixed, and produced by Smith at his home in Columbia over a two year period. Two Crossed Stars is a full realization of the technicolor images and sounds living in him for years waiting to be explored.

Smith's slow burn, sad dad, semi-quiet, emotive tunes have been featured on NPR, PBS, and Sunshone Still has opened for acts such as The Avett Brothers and Manchester Orchestra.

So, although Smith still has a boring real name, Sunshone Still gives him “a place to be”, so to speak.
