About Tigirlily Gold

A spirited sister duo, Tigirlily specialize in smooth, gleaming country-pop, a sound that suits both sprightly radio-ready numbers and ballads. While their earliest singles "Intuition" and "Best in Me" demonstrated a facility with modern pop rhythms, their eponymous major-label EP from 2021 showcases their ease at singing melodic country in the vein of vintage Chicks and Taylor Swift. Tigirlily -- pronounced "tiger" "lilly" -- is Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh, two sisters from Hazen, North Dakota. When they were 16 and 14, respectively, the Slaubaugh sisters formed Tigirlily in 2013. Within a few years, they were touring locally and posting recordings to YouTube. The duo moved to Nashville in 2017, enrolling in Belmont University (they'd both graduate in 2020) and settling into a residency at Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row club. The group continued to consolidate a fan base through social media and touring, landing plum gigs opening for Justin Moore, Chris Janson, and LeAnn Rimes. A pair of digital singles, "Intuition" and "Best in Me," arrived in 2020. A deal with Monument Records was announced on March 12, 2021, with the single "Somebody Does" arriving not much later. Monument released Tigirlily's eponymous EP in July; it featured songs they co-wrote with Walker Hayes, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Zarni deVette. Within a couple of months, the pair made an appearance on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
