Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz create candid music with deep emotional and personal resonance. The sisters, who record under the moniker Lily & Madeleine, boldly explore what it means to be women in the 21st century, and aren’t afraid to use their music to call out injustices or double standards. This fearless approach has permeated their three albums, which are full of insightful lyrics and thoughtful indie-pop.
But with their fourth studio album, Canterbury Girls—named after Canterbury Park, located in their hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana—the sisters are coming into their own as women and musicians.
Using an eclectic playlist of songs as sonic inspirations—soul tunes and waltzes, as well as cuts from Midlake, ABBA and Nancy Wilson—Lily & Madeleine worked quickly, recording the album in just 10 days.
In the last few years, Lily & Madeleine have amassed a supportive global community of fans and peers. They’ve toured as a headlining act, opened for everyone from Dawes to Rodriguez and in summer 2017, were invited to be backup singers on John Mellencamp’s Sad Clowns and Hillbillies Tour, on which they harmonized on hits such as “Cherry Bomb” and performed Carter Family songs with opener Carlene Carter. Unsurprisingly, diving right into making Canterbury Girls also helped the sisters learn a lot about themselves.
