A trio of gals from Charlotte, NC backed by a killer band, GalFriday describe themselves as “sisters”, raised on daddy’s bluegrass and momma’s hymn book. Lauren Wilson, Melissa York, and Ashley Min have cut their teeth performing live for the past 8 years, wowing crowds with killer live performances and a Carolina flavor you can’t get enough of. Their current project Bluegrass & Grit, out in Summer 2012, is an irreverent marriage of country, southern rock, and newgrass. Steel guitar, banjo, slide and fiddle dance through tunes like “Southern Wind” and wrap themselves up in a three-part harmony that gets to your soul and gives it a thump. These sisters write from experience, hopes, love, fiction, and a little bit of rebellion, and their songs give that bridled, rebel chick in all of us a big ol’ voice and a reason to shout!
Most of 2010 & 2011 was spent in Nashville writing, cowriting and conspiring with some of the most talented, seasoned songwriters in the business.
We've performed in venues such as the iconic Bluebird Cafe Nashville, The Billy Block Show & Hotel Indigo Nashville, House of Blues (Myrtle Beach), Sylvia Theatre, Historic Puckett's Farm, & Caesar's Palace Las Vegas. We also perform on a lot of festivals, state fairs & fundraiser events.
