All classically trained musicians and having played in other popular New York area groups, they formed Friday''s Child in 1995.
This trio released its debut CD, "Boy Without a Name" in 1997 on its own label, Honeybee Music.
They have built a large fan base by continuous touring from Massachusetts to Tennessee and as far west as Michigan.
The band has gained a national following via a strong Internet presence, having three songs in the top ten on https://www.tradebit.com, a major Internet radio station, and using on-line e-tailers, such as https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com, to sell its recordings.

In addition to touring clubs and colleges, Friday''s Child began an innovative in-store tour of the Borders Books and Music chain in 15 states.

Friday''s Child released a follow up CD in 2000 called "13." Combined in direct sales to fans, through Borders, and via on-line e-tailers, Friday''s Child has sold tens of thousands of discs to its many devoted fans.
Called "power acoustic" by the trade papers, Friday''s Child''s unique blend of poetic lyrics and explosively melodic music has earned the band a reputation as having one of the best live shows in the New York Tri-State area.

Having headlined several prestigious music festivals over the past six years (such as CMJ and NARAS''s Peekaboo Festival), Friday''s Child recently did two shows at the Nashville New Music Conference, making a strong entrance into that market.
