GFM is a new breed rising, an all-female Beautycore band comprised of a trio of sisters, commonly referred to as GFM. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, GFM infuses positive, youthful energy into traditional hard rock styling. They have introduced a new genre to the music world by the name of Beautycore which is a mix of hard rock and metalcore, played exclusively by women, and have coined the phrase "we are a new breed rising" from their song Graveyard of Identities. The group’s family ties inherently developed a tight musical bond, and began touring in 2014. Since then, GFM has been sought out for both Christian and general market events, playing festivals such as Rock the Tarmac, A Not So Silent Night, community events, traditional venues and the Axes and Anchors Cruise.
Seventeen-year-old CJ shines as the band’s lead guitarist and shares vocals with sixteen-year-old Maggie, who rocks dual instruments on bass and keys. The youngest of the group, thirteen-year-old Lulu, anchors the band with an intensity on drums that is way beyond her years.
GFM’s edgy sound resonates in the familiar dark corners of its rock genre; but with influencers like Skillet, Memphis May Fire, Bring Me the Horizon, Red and Disciple, GFM’s lyrics shine with a universal light. Through their individual journeys, GFM manages to blur the lines of the Christian sub-culture, reaching both conservatives and listeners beyond the devout. Drawing its name from the original gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, GFM proves that while the guitar’s distorted, the message is clear – the mission is the music.
