ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So who's behind the irresistible moniker of Girlyman, a trio that fits the bill for swirling styles and gender roles, both individually and collectively? Doris Muramatsu and Tylan Greenstein, whose 2002 debut as The Garden Verge received an Outmusic Award for Best New Recording by a duo, make up two-thirds of Girlyman. Rounding out the group is former Bostonian and Boston Music Award winner Nate Borofsky.

The accolades don't stop there, however. In 2002, Girlyman was voted "Most Wanted to Return" by fans at the prestigious Falcon Ridge Folk Festival; surprisingly, the trio had formed as a musical unit only a few months before the event. One listen to the 12 tracks on Girlyman's first studio project, "Remember Who I Am," and you'll understand why they snagged an audience-favorite nod so effortlessly.

Their resonant sound is one that you're almost guaranteed not to expect. Equal parts Alison Krauss & Union Station and REM, Girlyman's mellow, rootsy atmospherics feel right at home in an intimate acoustic venue like Harvard Square's Club Passim, where the trio recently performed. The group members trade songwriting responsibilities on most numbers, though their techniques flow together as smoothly as their electric harmonies.

Aptly titled, "Remember Who I Am" is a stirring collection of remembrances -of friends, of lovers, of ways of life. "Viola," the disc's lovely opening elegy, dips and soars more gracefully than many songs of its kind ("I drowned myself tonight in sangria/ Made with sliced up fruit and cheap marsala"). Other ballads such as "Say Goodbye" and "The Shape I Found You In" move deeply and deliberately courtesy of Joe Dye's pedal steel guitar, which floats through the songs like a somber ghost. The dreamy "Maori" boasts a gorgeous melodic finesse as it contemplates the faraway natives of New Zealand, while "Amaze Me" tells a quirky tale of love for America in a dark time. Each song hooks into what's visceral and true. -Jason Roush, Bay Windows

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

"Girlyman's strength lies in its harmonic, multi-instrumental mastery of buoyant,pop-folk numbers with elusive, poetic lyrics." - The Washington Post

"Supercharged with passion and deep musicality." - Catie Curtis

"Girlyman is truly a musical treasure. With gorgeous songs and detailed arrangements, they are a breath of fresh air every time I hear them. Girlyman is just what the music world needs!" - Matt Smith, Manager, Club Passim

Harmonies to make you cry!
This is an amazing CD . . . bought it after seeing them at Falcon Ridge, buying another copy to replace the scratched up (but well loved!) original. It did not leave my CD player for a week after I first bought it, Amaze Me had me sobbing. Truly amazing group of musicians and they are fabulous live too! Cannot wait for thier next CD!

As with their album Little Star, incredible 3 part harmonies
Had already listened to their album Little Star, so enjoyed more of their talented vocals, the harmonies between the three of them are so tight and enjoyable to hear.

Musical Bliss
This cd is irresistible – you and your cd player will go through withdrawal if you stop playing it. Buy it! Better yet, be like me and buy three - two to pass on the love.

Lynn

A must have for every music lover!
I have purchased this cd for myself twice and three others as gifts. Countless other friends have bought it on recomendation or upon hearing it at my house. Few cd's impact me this way. Brilliant and tight harmonies..magnificent!

Kerry

Girlyman in my head
This CD has such beautiful, singable songs. Great variety of melodies and moods - favorites are Say Goodbye and The Shape I found You In. Gorgeous, poignant, heart-breaking, reviving...amazing. Also fun ones - upbeat/jaunty sounds and words. I haven't listened to anything else in my car since I got it a week ago.

Matt Schwartz

What an amazing CD!
I've been listening to this CD every day since getting it. The harmonies and melodies are some of the most beautiful I've ever heard, able to capture so much emotional subtlety and range. They are complex, but not overdone, which is what makes them so moving. Several of the songs -- "Viola," "Hey Rose," "Maori," "The Shape I Found You In," "Amaze Me," are songs that I can rarely listen to without tears. Their version of "My Sweet Lord" is wonderful and spare and intimate, which is a good way to describe much of the album. Listen to it!

thank you brian moody!
got a chance to spend some time with my pal brian there, and we traded cds of new artists we'd been hooked on- me & kate rusby to he & girlyman- wow! that was a great idea! came home & bought the girlyman cd-good pick: thanks brian!

Kate in Oakland

Just beautiful. Really.
I got this at the demand of my sister who knows I don't even like folk music. But I love this album. Track three reduced me to tears again just this morning. This is a must-have, as will be their upcoming release!

Chris Parmley

Amazing harmonies + honest lyrics + fun power folk sound
The vocal harmonies on this record are unbelievable ~ at the same time moving, powerful and soothing. The instrumental music is pretty awesome as well! Meaningful lyrics, delivered with such honest beautiful harmonies ~ it is a FUN and compelling listening experience! Every time I listen it feels like I'm receiving a great big wonderfully fulfilling musical hug. It is impossible to hear these guys without totally falling in love with all three of them!!!

The freshest, heart-grabbing harmonies you may have ever heard.
I heard these three in concert this summer and they stole my heart. It was an out of body experience, with tingles on top. Now every time I listen to their CD, I'm transported back there. I can't wait for their next, and next....
