Girlyman members Ty Greenstein, Doris Muramatsu, and Nate Borofsky united six years ago, after pursuing separate musical ventures, and have since released three albums, toured with the Indigo Girls and Dar Williams, and performed at the Philadelphia and Boston Folk Festivals.

Describing their eclectic style, Girlyman says, “there’s straight-up pop, a slow country dance, a variation on bluegrass that we call ‘girlygrass,’ something vaguely jazzy, and a couple of rockers.”

The classically trained performers play various instruments including acoustic and baritone guitars, djembe, and mandolin.  The trio shares song-writing and lead vocal duties and their style not only expresses their love for various musical genres, but also reflects that they are “big harmony geeks,” said Greenstein.
