Sibling folk-pop duo Lily & Madeleine has been enthralling critics and fans alike with their delicate yet robust sound and stunning vocal harmonies. The pair's unadorned melodies, simple drum patterns, and nostalgic guitar tones make for an uncluttered sound, but the result is anything but simple -- finely crafted songs like "Come To Me" and "The Wolf is Free" demonstrate a depth of musicality that belies Lily & Madeleine's recent arrival on the critical radar. At their intimate live shows, the duo exude a kindred spirit and singularity of vision that only siblinghood can produce, treating fans to a sensitive and poignant concert experience they won't soon forget.
Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, sisters Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz began singing together in high school, performing and uploading cover songs to YouTube. Their videos caught the attention of local producer Paul Mahern, who invited them to his studio to record their debut EP The Weight of the Globe. After a video of the pair singing in the studio went viral on social news site Reddit, the EP was picked up and released by Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty Records. The release was an indie sensation, earning praise from critics including the New York Times, who called its perfectly blended harmonies "extraordinary." With their career on the rise, the sisters played their very first shows to sold-out crowds in Indianapolis in 2013. Lily & Madeleine continued to impress in 2014 with their debut full-length Fumes, which they supported with a string of acclaimed performances on tour.
