SJ & the Outcry

We're a Memphis based Indie Soul/Funk/Rock band that plays both originals and covers. I've put links to our Reverbnation page(where you can listen to recent live recordings), Facebook page, and our bio below.

Fresh out of this womb, Memphis, we are ready to cry out. We are all Tennessee homegrown and have all developed our art throughout our years. Now, we are forging our talents into this musical melting pot. Imagine Bill Withers and Amy Winehouse had a baby…and the doula that birthed this beautiful baby was Erykah Badu…and the Allman brothers were the coolest uncles ever.
Chris and LJ? Yeah, they’ve played and recorded in various bands together over the years including The Evolutionary Tree Incident and The Delta Project. Beale has been their stomping grounds, but they’ve also spread their jam throughout the Mid-South with Stone Stew Jubilee. Tim? He’s going to make you dance. A drummer since diapers, he’s made noise across the country with many artists to mention including Darryl Evan Jones, opening up for Kem, Boney James, and tributing Kenny Lattimore. And, of course, SJ. She completed her music degree on a full vocal scholarship and has gone global with her pipes. Upon her return, she sang with Paradise Daze of Nashville before moving to Memphis to connect to the soulful sound where she shines.
Together, we make this music.
