BIOGRAPHY

Hit Like A Girl is an indie/emo/pop band from Montclair, New Jersey fronted by Nicolle Maroulis. Nicolle is a non-binary/queer artist who started this project on their own. They began writing these songs years ago with an acoustic guitar and a vision. They spent years and years supporting other artists' musical endeavors, and finally decided to put that same energy into their own music. What initially started as just a singer-songwriter acoustic project, has now transformed into the full-band energetic sound we know and love today as Hit Like A Girl. The band has since been a collective involving different people to play different instruments at various shows. The lineup right now consists of Frederick Pruden playing guitar and synth, Joseph Paventa playing bass, and Marco Caruso playing drums. Most bands put a lot of effort and thought into the merch they print and sell at their shows, but Hit Like A Girl purposely does not sell merch at their shows. Nicolle (alongside Alex Dobrowolski of the band Sunrot) runs a non profit organization called No More Dysphoria, and at their shows sell merch for this organization instead. All proceeds of sales go towards aiding transgender individuals pay for major aspects of their transitions including but not limited to hormone replacement therapy, gender reassignment surgery, gender behavioral and occupational therapy, etc.
