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 that include the iconic Bluebird Cafe, The Billy Block Show & Hotel Indigo (Nashville), House of Blues (Myrtle Beach), Sylvia Theater (York, SC), Historic Puckett’s Farm (Charlotte, NC) and Caesars Palace (Vegas). We also perform at many state fairs, fundraisers and festivals.
