"Washington Post"

"Tired of discordant progressive and oh-so-experimental indie rock? Girlyman makes folk pop music that is defined by stunning three part harmonies and beautiful melodies. It's the type of music that just makes you want to sit back, close your eyes and listen." - Washington Post


"San Francisco Chronicle"

“Soaring harmonies, social consciousness, and impressive musical prowess…Girlyman’s bittersweet approach to the human condition will strike a chord regardless of the listener.” - San Francisco Chronicle


"The Village Voice"

"Really good, really unexpected, and really different." - The Village Voice

Bio

Girlyman hails from Atlanta, GA, though they formed the band while sharing an apartment in Brooklyn, NY. It was a strange start—their first practice was scheduled for September 11, 2001—but the project lived on, and in 2004 Amy Ray signed Girlyman to her indie label, Daemon Records. The following years brought long opening runs with Dar Williams and the Indigo Girls. The band now has a strong national following of its own, and spends a lot of time criss-crossing the country, playing to intensely loyal “girlyfans” who often travel hundreds of miles to see shows. In the past year Girlyman has headlined renowned venues such as The Birchmere, The Old Town School of Folk Music, The Ark, The Freight and Salvage and Swallow Hill.

And the name? “It’s great for us, provocative and playful,” says Muramatsu. “It makes people laugh. But it also hints at how we’ve never quite fit in. Nate wears make-up on stage, I’m a Japanese-American playing to mostly white audiences. Ty is a grown-up tomboy. The name Girlyman lets us acknowledge that we’re out of the mainstream, but without taking ourselves too seriously.” Girlyman has sold tens of thousands of copies of its first three studio albums. The band plans to release their fourth in the Spring of 2009.
