The Dead South is a folk-bluegrass musical ensemble based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The band was initially formed in 2012 as a quartet by Nate Hilts (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Scott Pringle (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Danny Kenyon (cello, vocals), and Colton Crawford (banjo). Crawford left the band in 2015 and was replaced by studio musician Eliza Mary Doyle for several years. Crawford re-joined the band starting with the Voices In Your Head tour in mid-2018.

The band played live venues before releasing their debut five-song 2013 EP, The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame. Their 2014 album Good Company was released by German label Devil Duck Records and led to significant overseas touring for the next two years. Good Company's single "In Hell, I'll Be in Good Company", produced by Orion Paradis at SoulSound studio, was created along with a video on YouTube and is credited as contributing to the breakthrough release for the band.

To date, The Dead South has released three EPs - The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame (2013), Easy Listening for Jerks Pt. 1 (2022), Easy Listening for Jerks Pt. 2 (2022), and three studio albums: Good Company (2014), Illusion and Doubt (2016), and Sugar & Joy (2019).
