Help us fund our MAGIC journey from the studio to radio-land!!!
"A new young version of Hazel & Alice" - Tony Lawson, host Blue Plate Special, WDVX Knoxville October 2012
HELP US KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE.
We are a nationally touring band making music full time.
We are making an album of original songs and need to cover the cost of the recording studio time, the mixing and mastering, and getting the CD professionally printed and packaged.
We also will need to pay for radio and tour promotion of the album.
YOU CAN BE A PART OF MAKING THIS HAPPEN by Pre-buying the album (or contributing in many other ways) HERE on KICKSTARTER!!!!
We will record this album at Empty Sea Studios (Seattle, WA) November 2012, with Michael Connolly
Our previous "homemade" album started getting played up by Folk and Bluegrass Radio Programs around the country and we've done many In-Studio performances as we've traveled.
We want to be able to do a real National Folk Radio Campaign for THIS album through Hearth Music

xo xo xo The GDs
The Gloria Darlings, Pandi and Milly, are a Seattle-based female folk-grass duo. An innovative string band like nothing ever seen or heard, they sing bright, vibrant, vocal harmonies to outstanding instrumentation. These young ladies are multi-instrumentalists with a strong focus on fiddle and guitar. Often called sirens, their catchy original tunes weave through the crowd. Definitely a band to watch; the tour de force harmony and energy gets every crowd smiling, singing along and toe tapping.
Their deep well of repertoire is full of original tunes, traditionals, and folksy renditions of popular songs. The GDs style is strongly rooted in Bluegrass Tradition and Early Country. The Gloria Darlings appear frequently at folk and bluegrass festivals and venues across the country. A unique little act with a big crowd-pleasing sound!

“An up-and-coming gifted songwriter and singer, Pandi (The Gloria
Darlings) conveys in equal parts; great melodies, wonderful lines
like, ‘when you stumble make it part of the dance,’ and a voice that
has sweetness, edge, tenderness and toughness.”
Alice Gerrard, August 2011
