"Cascade Crescendo’s name honors the majestic Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest including Oregon, and this Portland-based group’s impressive debut album proves yet again that you don’t have to hail from the Appalachian or Blue Ridge Mountains to create heartfelt, exciting bluegrass."
Cascade Crescendo recorded their first studio album in March 2016 at The Hallowed Halls in Portland, Oregon. Produced by Avi Brown, “Caught in the Rain” features fiddle player, Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band) on five tracks and a guest appearance by drummer Nick Werth (Yak Attack, Ghost Note, GALAXE).
Caught in the Rain shows off a range of the band's style from the rippin' banjo burner "Weekend at Harry's" to Americana ballads like "On the Other Side" and "If I was a Ramblin' Man" to the psycheledic jams of "1040". The album includes 11 original songs and a nostalgic cover of the Smashing Pumpkins song "Disarm", consistently a crowd favorite at their live shows.
