Gold Frankincense & Myrrh (GFM)
GFM is not your average teenage girl band… they’re sisters for crying out loud. Their musical journey began in 2016 when they worked on their first album “Identity Crisis” with producers Jake Jones and Justin Forshaw (formerly of We as Human). In 2017, the girls went on their first U.S. tour, and the demand was so strong for GFM that they went out again the following year in 2018 on another U.S. tour, finishing out the touring season with their first trip to Germany for a festival. GFM was met with thousands of loving fans and instantly became a festival favorite. In 2019, GFM released their much-anticipated EP “Oh, The Horror!” after working with Eric Varnell and Billy Decker (Uncle Kracker, Sam Hunt). GFM headlined their own summer U.S. tour, and again were called to perform in Germany at the end of the year. 2020 contained GFM’s first acoustic tour, along with the release of their first two singles off of their upcoming EP “Operation Take Over.” GFM had peaked Joey Sturgis’ (Blessthefall, Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men) interest, and he got involved in the producing process alongside Eric Varnell and Billy Decker. While on lockdown, GFM started the very first E-Tour, taking over various social media pages for over 20 dates of performing via livestream. They were able to do a short summer run as well, despite the pandemic situation, attracting several premieres and features from Alternative Press and front-page features in several magazines and newspapers across the nation.
With their music, GFM wants to show that women and young people can play music. Music can be encouraging and not just negative. GFM is breaking boundaries in so many areas of the music industry, and in doing so, they are bringing life back to rock and metal. The girls want to show the growth they’ve experienced through their music. They believe in being open with the fans and showing them the worst and best sides of themselves. They hope to encourage the listeners, help them keep fighting as they are not alone, and they wish to help others become more established in their faith.
GFM comes alive on any stage presented to them. Their favorite thing about playing is the response of the crowd. The way that everyone gets lost in the music mesmerizes them, and the power to control the actions of a room full of people excites them. Beyond the stage, the coolest thing to GFM about shows is the openness of the fans and the impact that their music is able to have on its listeners. They are overjoyed any time a fan explains their life-changing story, especially if they were encouraged by the girls’ music. GFM loves getting to know the fans beyond their social media tag.
