When the sisters of country trio Gal Friday heard the term “girl Friday” described on television, they knew instantly it was the perfect name for their band. “A woman on television referred to her best friend as her ‘girl Friday’ – her confidant, her Friday night out, her ride-or-die,” says member Melissa York. “We tweaked it a bit, being from the south – and Gal Friday was born.” Comprised of York, Ashley Min and Lauren Wilson, the sound that accompanies the endearing name is a sonically pleasing blend of the best their upbringing had to offer: southern gospel, rock, bluegrass and country. Their synergistic sibling harmonies and bluegrass soul peppered with notes of southern rock has resulted in a style that is unique and undeniably catchy.
