Hazen's Tigirlily Releases Music Video

Posted: Updated:

Small town girls make a big screen appearance.
Tigirlily's new song and music video "North Dakota" is becoming quite the hit on Youtube and Facebook.
Reporter Sarah Gustin met up with the Hazen High School duo and has more on their success.

(Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh / Tigirlily) "It's good that we complement each other. cause she is the main singer. I do harmony. I play the guitar she plays piano, so it just works out really well."
Hazen Sisters Kendra and Krista Slaybough are the voices behind Tigirlily.
(Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh / Tigirlily) "We were going through some names and Tigirlily came up and we were like yah, that's a perfect fit. Krista is more of the Tiger and I more of the lily. So we completed each other with that name I think. "
The two have been performing together for years. 
But, after co-writing with a song writer from California--the two turned their words into pictures.
(Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh / Tigirlily)"It was the first time we had like a makeup artist and lot 2029 out of Bismarck sponsored all of our clothes for the video, so we felt really glamorous and had all these cranes and cameras and it was an awesome experience. It was so much fun." 
The music video for "North Dakota" took three days to record---featuring some of our state's most well known qualities.
(Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh / Tigirlily)"The first day we were in Hazen downtown and then at Beulah at the baseball games. Second day we were in Bismarck down by the river and the third day we actually got up at three in the morning to go to the badlands to catch a sunrise."
While Kendra and Krista dedicate hours to their music, a majority of their day is spent here. (locker Nat)
Kendra and Krista are still in school.
Kendra is a senior, Krista a sophomore.
Kendra is off to college next year---so what's the future of Tigirlily ??
(Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh / Tigirlily)"I just want a successful career with Tigirlily. Be able to do it as my job because it would be an awesome job. I love doing it. How awesome of a job would that be? I think success for us, we don't have a set bar. Just taking all these opportunities and just keep growing with them day by day and getting our music to more and more people." 
Chasing that dream continues this fall when the sisters head to Nashville to record their second CD with Gwen Sebastian's producer.

If you like the song, "North Dakota" is available for purchase on Itunes.
