out·crop /ˈoutˌkräp/ (noun): an outstanding rock formation
The Outcrops play music with heart. They have dug their roots deep into blues, funk, R & B, soul, folk, country and jazz – all the elements that help make up a great American Rock & Roll band. Their original music stems from the same soulful soil. Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Cassidy Rain and lead guitarist Bryan Schroder started the band in 2016 when they discovered their joint passion for the Rock Blues genre. They began to jam songs from bands like the Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton, BB King & Buddy Guy. The connection they had to each other and the music was undeniable. As they built the sound that would eventually define “The Outcrops” they added Samual “Jazz” Goldstein on drums and Jason Casanovas on bass. This rhythm section provided both the funky feel and solid foundation that would make up what would become a tasteful and gritty blues-infused rock group. The Outcrops are a great example of a band that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Relatable Musicians: Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Allman Brothers, The Band, Derek & the Dominos, Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt.
