“Tom Schorsch and his brother Al were no strangers to folk music when they formed One of the Girls in 2004, when Al was just 17, because they wanted to play for St. Patrick's Day. The brothers grew up listening to Irish folk artists such as the Clancy Brothers, popular in the 1960s. "There's this whole folk tradition you can draw on," Tom Schorsch said. "In a way, it's almost like being in a cover band. You can put your own spin on [the songs]." Lead vocalist Schorsch said the band doesn't focus on one topic in particular, but it tries to bring humor and gusto to its narrative lyrics and driving rhythms. "We just like people to come out and see our shows. We are at it for fun."”
