Electronic Press Kit
The Mismatch is a 6-piece from Austin, TX. that combines folksome Americana tunes with a hometown groove, a bit of bluegrass, and just the right amount of grit. Fronted by singer-songwriter Billy Wayne Roy, The Mismatch consists of raw vocals, screaming fiddle, mandolin, bass, banjo, and drums that pairs well with many different types of artists as support or lead. An Americana-Folk Bluegrass Rockabilly band that bends the genres with their own thoughtful and unique twists.
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're sure to remember.
