A trio of gals from Charlotte, North Carolina, 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, due 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! GalFriday's current project, titled "Bluegrass & Grit" features 12 songs, 11 of which are all originally written or co-written by Melissa, Lauren and/or Ashley. They covered Bruce Hornsby's "Valley Road" and slapped some GalFriday/newgrass flavor on it. They had the pleasure of co-writing with Mitzi Dawn, Kim Tribble, Danny Simpson, Doug Stokes, Tammy Rogers (of The Steel Drivers), Denise Locke, Chaise Flanders, Keesey Timmer and Michael Flanders on this record.
