Nobody could’ve predicted The Outcome the night multi-instrumental singer/songwriter Jesse Sizemore first saw his future bandmates play at Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub in Sacramento. Drawn together by a shared passion for musical integrity coupled with a desire to push each other beyond the conventions of modern music, the foursome are unleashing a barrage of meticulously crafted neo-rock songs on the Northern California music scene.
In 2014, singer/songwriter/guitarist Quinn Hedges, drummer Andy Dibben, and bassist Mike Strickland teamed up to perform at a few local venues. With apparent musical chemistry between them, the three began a new project to collaboratively write original riff-based songs. Andy, having met Jesse at their day job and seeing a wealth of talent and creative potential, invited his co-worker to watch the trio perform. Soon after, Jesse introduced some of his original pop-oriented material to the group, thus transforming the trio into a quartet thenceforth known as The Outcome.
Jesse’s approachable songwriting style seemed to meld seamlessly with Quinn’s more elaborate composition method, which led the group to begin churning out challenging yet palatable tunes. Andy and Mike provide big, grooving backbeats and tasty, melodic bass lines over which effects addicts Jesse and Quinn create the textural atmospherics and searing guitar leads that define the band’s sound. With distinct yet complementary singing styles, Quinn and Jesse share lead vocal duties, adding to the band’s unique interpretation of modern rock.
Once they began to amass a repertoire of new original material, the four decided to refine their focus and bring a handful of their new tunes to the recording studio. Upon releasing their first EP, the band was honored to receive praise from owner of Pus Cavern recording studio Joe Johnston, calling them, “the upper echelon of musicians I have worked with for sure.”
As they endeavor on their quest to share their craft, this ambitious team of soundsmiths have their sights set on the Sacramento music scene and beyond, building an avid fan base with whom they connect both musically and emotionally. Continually pushing each other to new musical heights, The Outcome continue to hone a distinct and memorable sound that sets them apart from countless other gifted artists who call California their home.
