FACEBOOK

Cascade Crescendo is a high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass and Americana band hailing from Portland, Oregon. The group formed in 2013 with original members Hunter White (lead vocals, guitar), Taylor Skiles (upright bass) and Aden Beck (mandolin, vocals). Duluth, Minnesota’s native son Harrison Olk (banjo, vocals) joined the band in 2015. Cascade Crescendo’s debut album, “Caught in the Rain," appeared in 2016 to warm reviews. The group toured throughout the United States in 2017 and 2018, expanding their fanbase well beyond their Pacific Northwest home. Cascade Crescendo has performed at festivals across the U.S. including Boats and Bluegrass in Minnesota, YarmonyGrass in Colorado, Blue Ox Music Festival in Wisconsin, River City Roots Festival in Montana and Northwest String Summit in Oregon.

In February of 2019, Cascade Crescendo released their second full-length album, “Chasing the Sun.” The album features returning guest performances from Allie Kral (fiddle, Yonder Mountain String Band) and Nick Werth (drummer, Galaxe; formerly of Yak Attack), as well as a showing from Anders Beck (dobro, Greensky Bluegrass) on the single, "Every Little Thing". Cascade Crescendo has toured throughout 2019 in support of their new album with major festival appearances including Bender Jamboree and Blue Ox Music Festival.

Cascade Crescendo has... "gained a loyal following with their tightly crafted bluegrass that embraces tradition alongside more progressive, jam-oriented styles." - Glide Magazine

"Folky singer-songwriter songs are blended with complex harmonies, traditional bluegrass and faster, alternative rock beats. What emerges is a cross between funk, jamgrass, Americana and bluegrass—or newgrass, as they call it—a sound you can't help but dance to. " - Source Weekly (Bend, OR)
