Girls Guns and Glory
For the past eight years, Boston's rising stars Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards). And, now, the hard-working band is refining their focus to the roots of rock 'n' roll with a twist of country on their fifth album, "Good Luck," due on February 4, 2014 on Lonesome Day Records.

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) found inspiration for this record from early '50s rock 'n' roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

The early rock 'n' roll inspiration is somewhat of a full circle moment for Hayden. "This style of music was in the house I grew up in," explains Hayden. "My mom was a fan of the earlier country music and early rock 'n' roll, but I didn't have real taste for it until I was about 20. I had this beat up old Oldsmobile that didn't have a radio, only a tape deck. My mom would lend me her tapes of Johnny Cash or Hank Williams so I'd have something to listen to. I fell in love with the sound; it was everything I had been looking for."
