Homegrown FOlk-Americana from Central, Texas 


The Mismatch is a 6 piece from Austin, TX that smoothly combines folksome Americana tunes with a hometown groove, a bit of bluegrass, and just the right amount of grit. The Mismatch consists of raw vocals, screaming fiddle, mandolin, bass, banjo, guitar and drums that pairs well with many different types of artists as support or lead, spanning genres from Americana to Folk to Bluegrass to Rockabilly and Psychedelic Folk-Rock. 

Something really special happens when The Mismatch takes the stage, the overall charisma & energy that the band brings while on stage or off is truly infectious and fun to watch. An act that is unforgettable, multi-dimensional, and tells a story you won’t forget.
