Girlyman’s Tylan goes solo with new CD
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.
