About Girls on Decks

Founded in 2003 by Krista Thibodeau (Molly Fi), an aspiring DJ at the time, Girls on Decks was her response to the overly competitive and largely male dominated climate in the dance music industry in Calgary. She felt there was little support for the up and coming female acts in Alberta, there was no place just for girls. Krista enlisted help from two other emerging artists, Isis Graham and Jenny Ellis (Adrenacrone) and the three formed the Original Three G.O.D’s. Carrying on with the mandate of creating opportunities for others to play and supporting woman in the arts, the three set forth on their adventure.
