Our Story

The Outcrowd is a toe-tapping original rock band from Houston driven by a passion for big hooks, tight riffs, and heartfelt lyrics. Drawing on influences from Roger Waters to Willie Nelson, Otis Redding and Queens of the Stone Age, The Outcrowd’s sound is ambitious and fun.

 

The group was born in 2019 when Joe Cullar (guitar, vocals) and Steve Cummins (drums) began recording the band’s first EP, “Volume One.” Bassist Matt Garcia stumbled upon the band playing pool at a neighborhood saloon, bonding over shots and classic rock. The three rehearsed passionately for months, only to see venues shut down before their first gig. And somewhere in the fog of 2020, Dr. Joe Holland joined the band on keys and vocals, rounding out The Outcrowd’s classic sound.

Album Releases

The Outcrowd released its first original EP, “Volume 1,” on August 7th, 2020 to Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple, and all digital platforms. “Volume 1” was recorded in Houston and mixed by Jake Lummus in New York City. The EP features four original songs.

"Watching the Outcrowd play at Shady Acres Saloon is one of my favorite pastime. They always put the crowd in such a great mood, it feels like everyone is living in the moment. The occasional references to Houston are not overlooked and always bring a sense of community to the audience. A true Houston band with national appeal."

"Expect big things from The Outcrowd. The Houston based band recently released their debut EP 'Volume One' featuring four original tracks with Rock N Roll and Americana influences that are equally fitting for the Houston bar scene or a backyard BBQ. Now that venues are beginning to open back up, the band is making their rounds in the city, playing shows at venues like Red Dwarf, Dan Electro's, and more. The group brings a polished live set that will have you on your feet and moving. With live music almost completely shut down in 2020, you can tell that The Outcrowd has put in the work to bring you an impressive live set in 2021."
