Lush harmonies and heartfelt lyrics, often with a wink or quirky twist, await you with the brilliant singer/songwriter duo: Griefcat. Described as "Local Favorites" by Washington City Paper, Griefcat is comprised of veteran singer-songwriters Louisa Hall and Nardo Lilly. Nardo and Louisa met behind the scenes at a variety show in 2015, and felt an immediate kinship after Nardo sang about a Hot Park Ranger, and Louisa about her Barista Boyfriend. They reunited to play the 9:30 Club in 2018 and vowed to form a band: Griefcat. They scheduled their first rehearsal in 2019, wrote a song about vaccines and egg rolls, and the rest is (recent) history.
Griefcat's songs range from hilarious to sincere with a unique sound akin to Flight of the Conchords, mixed with a little Dolly Parton and an indie flair. Griefcat entertains with music about the trials, joys, and tribulations of modern life. As one concert goer said, seeing Griefcat was the "the most fun I've had since Lizzo."
