Blue Mountain Soul
Sean and Cassandra are singer songwriters from NEPA. Coming together while writing original songs and a shared passion for vocal harmonies expanded the possibilities of what we could bring to our shows. Covering a wide range of artists and genres from soul, rock, r&b, country, and pop spanning the 50's to now. Each show is unique and we love being able to shift genres or selections to fit the event. Currently forming a new full band project "Blue Mountain Soul '' and most shows are "SCB trio" shows featuring our bass player Bill and the added sound possibilities really have some exciting things coming up.
