Born in the heart of Cherokee county we embrace our Americana roots. Our songs are inspired by the joys and heartaches, the love and loss, life and death we have experienced.

Scissor Tail is the debut album released in 2014 from DocFell & Co, lead by doctor by day/Red Dirt singer-songwriter by night, John Fell.
