As the name implies, The Outliers is a bit different type of band. The band formed out of the respect for traditional American music but a love for genres spanning from reggae to Delta blues and a belief that music can change, become new and still evoke the deep ancient tones within.
Hank Bowman is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina. As the frontman and lead singer for The Outliers, Hank brought his original music to the stages throughout the southeast. Now, with the release of his first solo project, “Lonely”, The Outliers will be touring listening rooms across the area to bring his unique stylings to his loyal fans and new ones alike.
Stan Brown is undoubtedly one of the best to ever pick the five string banjo. After years in Nashville playing with the likes of Grand Ol Opry stars Wilma Lee Cooper and Bill Monroe, Stan returned to his home state of North Carolina to become a first call banjo picker. He is widely regarded for his unique backup licks that give life to any song.
Joining Bowman is Julie Brown on bass. Julie has a sense of tone and timing that is highly sought after. After a solid run with the nationally touring Sweet Potato Pie, Julie holds down the rock solid upright bass duties with style and grace, knowing that what you don’t play is as important as what you do play. She is an enlightened bass player.
Spencer Mobley on mandolin adds to the signature sound of The Outliers through the style, timing and tone that he delivers. Spencer is known for his crowd pleasing romps through a melody that brings you to edge of your seat.
Together, The Outliers are pushing limits, reaching back in time, and creating an unexpected acoustic experience each time they take the stage.
