Two Nice Girls

Two Nice Girls were a self-styled "dyke rock" band from Austin, Texas, featuring singer-songwriter Gretchen Phillips.

The group's original line up (1986–1989) was

Gretchen Phillips - guitar, bass, mandolin and vocals

Kathy Korniloff - guitar, bass, violin, percussion, vocals

Laurie Freelove, guitar, bass, percussion & vocals.

Members each wrote songs and took turns on different instruments. Freelove left following completion of the band's first album in 1989 to pursue a solo career. She was replaced by Meg Hentges. Drummer Pam Barger was added to the band just prior to Freelove's departure.

Two Nice Girls won a GLAAD Media Award in 1991. The group broke up in 1992. Hentges went on to release an EP and two full-length albums. Phillips recorded several self-released albums and formed other bands. Korniloff moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in sound design and music for motion pictures. Barger moved to Seattle and joined The Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet.
