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, a pinch of funk, and just the right amount of grit. Fronted by singer-songwriter Billy Wayne Roy, The Mismatch consists of raw and honest vocals, screaming fiddle, mandolin, bass, banjo, and drums that pairs well with many different types of artists as support or lead.
 An Funkabilly Newgrass band that bends the americana and bluegrass 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.
