The Outcrops Agent, Jim Nestor   EPK 
From the woods of Northern New Jersey, the Outcrops bring original blues-infused rock’n’roll. The four-piece band was formed in 2016 by lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Cassidy Rain & lead guitarist Bryan Schroeder. As a singer, Cassidy has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi but her raw sensibility as front person could as easily bring comparisons to blues legends like Howlin Wolf or Muddy Waters. Bryan’s playing falls somewhere between Duane Allman and Derek Trucks, as many fans have pointed out. Bryan has also noted Jerry Garcia as a major influence. His long flowing lead lines throughout songs intertwine with Cassidy’s vocal phrases to create a very melodic sound that sets the tone for The Outcrops. The rhythm section of the band includes a rotating cast of bass players and Max Adler on drums. The rhythm section brings a funk and soul feel that melds wonderfully with Cassidy and Bryan creating the perfect band tag: Rock & Roll, Blues & Soul.

Years of playing all kinds of gigs from major festival stages to corner taverns has honed each member's skills to a fine edge.

The Mighty Soul Drivers deliver the goods. From the moment the opening horn riff blasts out of your speakers, The Mighty Soul Drivers pump out the best Memphis-style Soul to be heard in Southern New England.  EPK
