Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Dissimilar South has been categorized as indie rock, new folk, Americana, and even polished pop-country. Whatever they are, their refreshing sound is characterized by rich instrumentation, honest lyrics and luscious harmonies. Though members have come and gone, Dissimilar South’s core is the musical relationship between Carter Hodge and Maddie Fisher, now a six year affair. Having released their debut EP in 2019, the band is poised for a delightful full album release in 2021, produced by the Grammy nominated Jason Richmond. Fisher and Hodge bring their songs to life with robust support from some of the best instrumentalists in North Carolina, including Joseph Terrell (Mipso), Alex Bingham (Hiss Golden Messenger), Joe Westerlund (Sylvan Esso, Watchhouse) and Joe McPhail (T.Gold).
