One More Girl is a country music duo comprised of actress-singers and sisters Carly McKillip and Britt McKillip hailing from Vancouver, BC. The sisters, who share an undeniable chemistry both on and off-stage, blend their pristine voices effortlessly, and pour their hearts so deeply into their words and music that listeners are inevitably moved. Britt and Carly have enjoyed an impressive amount of success, including a No. 1 spot for their hit ‘When It Ain’t Raining’ at CMT, the Canadian Radio Music award for Best Country Artist in 2010, the Canadian Country Music Association’s ‘Rising Star’ award the same year as well as the BC Country Music Association’s ‘Single of the Year’, ‘Group or Duo’, ‘Album’ and ‘Entertainer of the Year’. Signing with Interscope Records in 2011 presented many opportunities for the sisters to meet, write with, and work alongside some of the heavy weights of the industry including Jimmy Iovine, Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow), Vince Herbert (Lady Gaga), Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne), Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera) and Mary J. Blige.  They’ve also shared the stage with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith and Jason Aldean and undertaken extensive and repeated songwriting excursions to Nashville and Los Angeles, working with some of the best in the business; from Radney Foster (‘Nobody Wins’, ‘Just Call Me Lonesome’) to Billy Steinberg (‘Like a Virgin’, ‘True Colours’), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and hitmaker Sarah Buxton (‘Stupid Boy’). One of the duo’s career highlights, however, would have to be receiving the prestigious invitation to play the legendary Grand Ole Opry not once, but twice in 2014.

Music’s not their only domain either. Both sisters have appeared in a number of movies and television shows and some of their standout appearances include Britt playing a lead in the critically acclaimed Showtime series ‘Dead Like Me’ as well as currently filming a recurring role on the new CW drama ‘Frequency’; and voicing numerous characters in many popular animation series including Princess Cadence in ‘My Little Pony’, and Sabrina in ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch: Sabrina’s Secret Life’. Carly, on the other hand, secured a recurring role on ABC's 'Life As We Know It' starring Kelly Osborne, and snagged the lead role of Alice McLeod on CTV's 'Alice, I Think' comedy.

As we eagerly await their third studio album, we can look forward to an artistic evolution signifying the growth and depth of this act and their music: a name change to simply ‘McKillip’, and a raw, organic approach with self-penned songs broadening the duo’s accessibility to the international market.   Set to be released late 2017, this album promises to carry on the solid commercial success the sisters have enjoyed both locally and abroad.
