Nashville recording artists and North Dakota's own, Kendra and Krista, combine their individual talents with sibling harmony to make up the genre-bending duo, Tigirlily. Singing since they were talking, blending their voices was a natural step. In the past 7 years, the sisters have grown from touring the Midwest to headlining their own shows nationwide. Along the way, they have independently grown their fanbase through high energy live performances and a heavy social media presence with over 300,000 followers on TikTok alone. Diversely influenced and hard to box in, the pair have crafted a remarkable sound with songs handwritten by the two, appealing to pop and country audiences alike. The duo have opened up for musical talents such as LeAnn Rimes, Big and Rich, Justin Moore, Chris Janson, Thompson Square, Love and Theft, and many more. Tigirlily’s Debut EP “Victory” (2014) charted at #33 in the Top Country Albums on iTunes and #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers (NW regional) chart. Their latest EP "Wild Creatures" (2017) charted at #14 on the iTunes Country Charts and at #5 on the Billboard Heatseekers (NW regional) chart. Their current singles, “Jealous” (2020) and “Unravel” (2020) are available on all streaming platforms.
Some of Tigirlily's performing highlights thus far include performing at the Gramercy Theater in New York City, NY, Backstage Nashville, Blake Shelton’s Ole Red, Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row, and the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN, The House of Blues in Dallas, TX, The Burning Hills Amphitheater in Medora, ND, performing at two ND Governor's Inaugural Celebrations, and the North American Special Olympics Softball Championship opening ceremony. In 2019, Tigirlily performed in Belmont University’s Country Showcase. Kendra and Krista have enjoyed singing the National Anthem at the PBR, Carson Wentz's AO1 Foundation Charity Softball Tournament, World of Outlaws (sprint car racing), UND Hockey, NDSU Basketball and Football, Belmont Basketball, Lou City Kentucky USL Championship, Nashville Soccer Club, and the Nashville Sounds. In the spring of 2014, Tigirlily, partnered with Bank of North Dakota College Planning Center’s "Dollars for Scholars" to tour schools around ND to help raise money for "Dollars for Scholars." In the Fall of 2016, the duo did another BND school tour to perform and visit with students about the importance of higher education. Tigirlily continued touring schools in the Spring of 2017 and 2018 with their "Step" tour, speaking with students of the importance of dreaming big, celebrating their uniqueness, and being kind to one another. Tigirlily also partnered with the North Dakota Department of Transportation’s "Code for the Road" campaign to discuss the importance of seat belt use after Krista was in a car crash in which her seat belt saved her life.
Tigirlily has always prioritized to not only make the best music they can but to also give back and inspire others through their music. Kendra and Krista have been able to give back to the community with their love of music by being apart of Musicians on Call and performing for fundraising and benefit concerts. Tigirlily was awarded American Patriot plaques for their support of soldiers and veterans in 2014. In 2020, Tigirlily helped raise money for Music Cares and the Food Bank of North Dakota through live stream concerts.
Tigirlily currently resides in Nashville, TN, while continuing their songwriting and music career.
