The Outcrops 

out·crop /ˈoutˌkräp/ : an outstanding rock formation

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 a front person could as easily bring comparisons to blues legends like Howlin Wolf or Muddy Waters. Bryan's long flowing lines throughout songs intertwine with Cassidy’s vocal phrases to create a very melodic sound. Fans often draw comparisons to Derek Trucks or Jerry Garcia. The rhythm section of the band includes a rotating cast of bass players and Max Adler on drums. The rhythm section brings some serious funk and soul feel to the music, creating their original Blues, Soul, & Rock'n'roll.
