Soul-hop & solidarity
about the band
Girlboy is what you get when a girl rapper and a boy singer hit it off. A funky fusion of soul and hip hop, Girlboy inhabits a space between feel-good dance band and introspective synthpop songwriting team.
Haley Hill and Matthew Blake joined their eclectic styles in the summer of 2014. With a diverse repertoire of covers and original music, Girlboy is just as comfortable dancing on a summer festival stage as they are performing an acoustic set in a house show.
Girlboy’s motto is Get Ya Sunnies, which, in addition to being the first song on their 2015 debut LP Late Bloomers, is shorthand for “get out, have fun, stay real, and ignore the shade.”
