Girls Guns and Glory

Boston, Massachusetts

Five short years ago, a quartet of similarly influenced Bostonians coalesced around an abiding love of the Americana sound, christening themselves Girls Guns & Glory. Crafting a sonic identity from the raw materials of Country, Rockabilly, Blues, Folk, Western Swing and Rock, the band hit the studio just three weeks after its launch to begin recording its debut album, Fireworks and Alcohol. GG&G’s third and latest album, 2008’s Inverted Valentine, earned an Album of the Year nomination in the Boston Music Awards, and they were BMA’s Americana Act of the Year in 2007 and 2008.
