Stepping out of my usual for a while, I recently wrote a first-person profile on this enchanting teenage sister duo.
I meet Madeleine and Lily Jurkiewicz of the budding musical duo Lily & Madeleine at Monon Coffee Company. We fill up our mugs with black brew, and as we settle into comfy armchairs, I can tell it won’t be difficult getting these teenage sisters to talk.
“Our family’s pretty musical,” says 18-year-old Madeleine, a chestnut-haired senior from Bishop Chatard. “My mom taught us everything we know.”
A cross between Indie and folk, the duo’s music is lilting, ponderous, gentle; filled with youthful questioning and a surprising poetic maturity. An unexpected sound coming from the Justin Bieber generation.
