Bio

outcrop /ˈoutˌkräp/ (noun): an outstanding rock formation

The Outcrops play music with heart. They have dug their roots into rock'n'roll, blues, funk, R&B, old country and jazz. Their original music stems from the same soulful soil. Cassidy Rain (vocals/guitar) and Bryan Schroeder (lead guitar) started the band in 2016 with a passion for rock’n’roll and blues music from their love of bands such as the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, and blues artists such as B.B King and Buddy Guy. Since then, The Outcrops have opened for Grammy nominated blues artist, Alexis P. Suter, and they have shared the stage with artists such as Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), Andy Goessling (Railroad Earth), and John Ginty (Robert Randolph Band, Allman Betts band).  

Currently, they are working on their debut album, due out this spring, with producer Tim Carbone in Delaware Water Gap, PA at MixOLydian Studios. They hope to enliven every audience and shed a little sunlight on such timeless music.
