Sometimes described as Mumford & Sons’ evil twins, the Regina quartet of Nate Hills (lead vocals, guitar, mandolin), Colton Crawford (banjo, kick drum), Scott Pringle (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Doug Kenyon (cello, vocals), these self-professed `modern hillbillies’ have just re-mastered their debut full album recording, `Good Company’ (Curve Music/Entertainment One), originally release in 2014, with “Honey You” serving as the record’s first single/video.

Produced by Omen Paradis (Rah Rah, Liberty Voices),  `Good Company’ reflects the band’s fun-loving bluegrass nature. A love of bluegrass that connected Hills and Crawford together in 2012. With Pringle and Kenyon joining forces, The Dead South released a 2013  EP, `The Ocean Went Mad And We’re To Blame’, a released, followed by a successful showcase at the 2014 Canadian Music Week conference which earned the band a German recording contract with Devil Duck Records. It was a deal which allowed the band to tour Europe.

Curve Music’s Brian Hetherman flew over to Germany to scout the band and was suitably impressed that he signed a management agreement. A further strong showcase at 2014’s Break-Out  West festival in Winnipeg they ended up securing a booking agency deal with Paquin Entertainment.
Having created a strong following with touring itineraries that have taken the band across North America and into Europe with a unique tongue-in-cheek, on-stage persona that reflects Old West Pioneers, The Dead South are about to reach a mainstream audience with their tales of murderous estranged spouses and runaway lover cousins
