After five studio albums and 10 years on the road with acclaimed folk-pop quartet Girlyman, Tylan returns to her roots with her debut solo, One True Thing. Tylan Greenstein dropped her guard, as well as last name, for the new solo venture.

Whisperinandhollerin.com says the new songs “evoke names like Janis Ian and Willie Nelson, emotional outsiders with their hearts on their sleeves. Folksy Americana and urban literacy sit comfortably together in [her] songs.”

Tylan worked with producer Michael Connolly at the renowned Empty Sea Studios in Seattle to create a stripped-down sound–using guitar, piano, Hammond organ, upright bass, cello and the drums of fellow Girlyman member JJ Jones. Friends Coyote Grace, Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls and Lucy Wainwright Roche all make guest vocal appearances.

Says Americana Gazette, “Ty’s expressive alto brings quiet energy to her introspective ballads, nursing a negotiation of life from pain to acceptance, if not peace.”

Founded in 2001, the four members of Girlyman went from playing for tips in coffeehouses to selling out 500-seat venues across the country; they also toured internationally, graced festival main stages, and opened for such folk luminaries as Indigo Girls and Dar Williams.
