Featuring three distinct voices and three distinct personalities, Girlyman can entertain on multiple levels. Their style is hard to categorize, but the "folk-rock" label probably suits them best. Here's their 2007 lineup:
Ty Greenstein - Vocals, string instruments, percussion
Doris Muramatsu - Vocals, string instruments
Nate Borofsky - Vocals, guitar
With lots of humor, great vocal harmonies and surprisingly good songwriting, Girlyman won me over in no time. One does not often get to hear songs as good as "Kittery Tide", "On The Air" and "Amaze Me" and who else but the zany Nate Borofsky would think of singing "Rock Me Amadeus" in German?
Singer-songwriter Chris Pureka opened the April 2007 show and I must admit that her music did not touch me at all. On the other hand, my friends Ralph and Laura turned into huge Pureka fans, as they heard something there that obviously eluded me.
