Gir­ly­man’s Ty­lan goes solo with new CD

GA Voice - - Directory Listings - — Laura Dou­glas-Brown

For more than a decade, Ty­lan Green­stein wowed fans as part of Gir­ly­man, the quar­tet known for tight har­monies and cre­ative folkpop tunes. Now she is go­ing solo, us­ing just her first name to re­lease her own al­bum, “One True Thing,” cur­rently avail­able for pre-or­der on her web­site, www.ty­lan­mu­sic.com.

Ty­lan re­cently moved from At­lanta to Cal­i­for­nia, but re­turns to Ge­or­gia for a Feb. 15 solo show at De­catur’s Ed­die’s At­tic and a Feb. 17 show in Sa­van­nah.

“The solo al­bum is some­thing I wanted to do for a long time,” says Ty­lan, who de­scribes her solo style as “more raw and pretty ex­posed.”

The first sin­gle on her solo al­bum, “Al­ready Fine,” is a slow-burn acous­tic duet with Amy Ray that high­lights Ty­lan’s in­tro­spec­tive lyrics and strong vo­cals.

The move sig­nals a time of tran­si­tion for Gir­ly­man, which has taken a hia­tus from tour­ing. Fel­low mem­ber Nate Bo­rof­sky is also work­ing on a solo CD, and the three mem­bers mi­nus Ty­lan — Bo­rof­sky, Doris Mu­ra­matsu and JJ Jones — are plan­ning a chil­dren’s al­bum.

“Where we all are right now is we are not mak­ing some huge de­ci­sion about the fate of Gir­ly­man, we are just all con­cen­trat­ing on ex­plor­ing other projects,” Ty­lan says.
