The project of Denver native Ross Ryan began in 2011 when one of his bands, Boys, won a Guitar Center contest that awarded them $30,000 and an opening gig for Jane’s Addiction on their Nothing’s Shocking 20th-anniversary tour. Ross immediately put his share of the earnings to good use and purchased all the equipment he would then use to experiment with and create electronic music as StéLouse (pronounced “Stay Loose”).
