Scott Chism & The Better Half – Americana / Folk / Country
Formed in North Mississippi (Tupelo, MS), Scott Chism & the Better Half have been playing their blend of energetic americana/folk/bluegrass/old country live shows all across the southeast since 2008. They have shared the stage with acts like Danny Barnes, Grayson Capps, Robert Ellis, Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers, The Dirt Daubers, The Kentucky Headhunters, Shannon McNally, Cary Hudson/Blue Mountain, Cedric Burnside, Jimbo Mathus, and many other talented bands/musicians. The core of SC&BH lies mainly with Scott Chism on acoustic guitar/vocals and Lynsey Terry on vocals. They recently released their long-awaited debut album “Long Haul Steady” which was recorded at Adam Landry’s Playground Sound Studio (Deer Tick, Middle Brother, Those Darlins) in Nashville, TN. Produced by Colonel Braden Land & SC&BH, the session brought together Chris Scruggs on lap steel (BR549, Andrew Bird); Jen Gunderman on keys/accordion (Warren Haynes, Steve Earle, Chris Robinson, Dag, The Jayhawks); Molly Thomas on violin/fiddle (Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough); Jon Radford on drums (Justin Townes Earle); & Jake Bradley on bass (Wanda Jackson). The album also includes amazing artwork from Adult Swim’s own Ben Prisk (Squidbillies, ATHF). Look for Scott Chism & the Better Half on tour in a city or town near you!
