Formed high up on a hill in Dobbs Ferry, NY in 2007, Greetings From Anywhere mashes folk, blues, bluegrass and country into a unique roots-rock hybrid, performing with the gritty, impromptu abandon of a good-old-time garage band. Veterans of the NYC and Hudson Valley club, pub and festival circuit, GFA features a wide array of original compositions alongside choice reinterpreted feel-good covers.
Graceful lead vocalist Sheila Noonan-Gorham, who's steeped in the tradition of Irish music, is joined by a supporting cast with diverse musical backgrounds; acoustic guitarist/banjoist Andrew Schriever cut his chops in the Boston folk scene, electric bassist Adam Friedman and drummer Doug Schneider are veterans of the jam band circuit, multi-instrumentalist Michael Chatham is rooted in the south Florida punk/DIY tradition, and classically-trained fiddler Liz Mackanesi performed in NYC indie rock bands. In addition to their primary instruments, each supporting band member is known to take their own turn on lead vocals, creating a unique dynamic to each performance.
GFA is in the final stages of recording sessions with producer/engineer Matt Noble of their hometown Riverworks Recording, with a record release date slated for Fall 2014.
