The core of Dillon Fence today is the same group of friends that formed the band in the late 80s as UNC and Wake Forest students, singer/guitarist Greg Humphreys, guitarist/singer Kent Alphin, and bassist/singer Chris Goode.
Their self released debut EP, influenced by southern jangle and British alternative, was a hit on southeastern college radio and heralded a new Chapel Hill, NC music scene. Drummer Scott Carle joined the band and they soon signed to NC based indie label Mammoth Records. By the time their shimmering pop rock debut LP Rosemary was released in 1992, Dillon Fence had become the biggest draw on the southeastern college circuit.
Their more alternative rock leaning follow up LP Outside In and the classic rock influenced third LP Living Room Scene took the band on multiple tours across the U.S. and Europe, supporting The Black Crowes, Weezer, Lemonheads, and Hootie and The Blowfish.
Since 2000, Dillon Fence has reunited from time to time, to visit with each other and play shows for their appreciative fans. For many, Dillon Fence music is a big part of the soundtrack to their lives.
