Lily & Madeleine
Lily & Madeleine is an American folk pop duo composed of sisters Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz. They have released four full-length albums: Lily & Madeleine (2013) and Fumes (2014) on Asthmatic Kitty Records, and Keep It Together (2016) and Canterbury Girls (2019) on New West Records. For their 5th studio album Nite Swim, Lily and Madeleine joined forces with their longtime friend and bandmate Shannon Hayden to produce and mix the album over the last 2 years. Shannon also contributed much of the instrumentation on the record. Over ten tracks, Nite Swim guides the listener through scenes of Lily and Madeleine’s lives, collectively as sisters and individually as artists. Each song reveals the wins, losses, and lessons learned over the last 10 years, the sisters’ voices pristinely set within Shannon’s beautifully choreographed instrumentation. It is an album that reveals a hard won maturity and offers a greater vulnerability than their past albums, though it is a vulnerability from a place of deep confidence and reclaimed ownership of their musical careers.
