Story behind your band/artist name:
--Outrage was something that popped up like 8 years ago. I have a long last name that starts with Ou and every time I used to be on word check in college it would change my last name to Outrage. It was so bizarre but I mentioned it to my roommate and they were like oh that's actually a cool rapper name. Kinda sounds like you too. At first I thought it was just funny and I made my Facebook name Julie Outrage. It got to the point over the years that know one even knew my real last name. Might legally change at this point ha ha. Melanin Magic is another story.
--Julie Outrage (Vocals, Guitar, Drums), Dajando Smith (Bass)
