“Have you got this one Vince?”
“Yes, I got it.”
“Good, let’s go to lunch.”
(Overheard in the Thom Thom Club in Los Angeles a few months ago)

Unremarkable words, perhaps, on their own; and certainly words that could apply to a million music industry scenarios. But this time it relates to what could be best described as a fairy tale discovery story.

The Vince in question is A&R executive Vince Herbert who signed Lady Gaga to his Steamline Records, a joint venture with Interscope, right after she was dropped by Def Jam. The quote itself came from legendary music producer and entrepreneur Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope-Geffen-A&M. The “one” Iovine was referring to is One More Girl, the remarkably talented Canadian female singer/songwriter duo who had just performed for him in the above mentioned club.

The signing of One More Girl’s worldwide deal with Interscope took place last Thursday. The signing began with an inquiry by Interscope A&R manager Aimee Nadeau, who works with Jolene Cherry (former Senior VP of A&R), to the band’s booking agent Jim Cressman, after being intrigued by their name in a trade magazine. From that initial inquiry to the band becoming part of the Interscope family was a courtship over 18 months (which is actually a landmark time to conclude such a major deal).

While auditioning in L.A. the girls were informed the piano that they would be playing was the same one Lady Gaga had played while auditioning for her record deal. “That was a big moment for us as we are such Gaga fans”, laughs group member Carly McKillip.

On the high of this new adventure Carly states, “Dreams do come true, we are so fortunate to be in this position. Why we were the lucky ones, I don’t know…..but I’ll take it.”

One More Girl, featuring the
McKillip Sisters from Maple Ridge,
won their first Canadian Country
Music Award — for rising star of the
year.
“This is the coolest thing that has
ever happened to us,” said Britt McKillip,
who went on to thank their parents
for “supporting us since the day
we were born” and “for letting us live
at home for free.”
“We’ll pay rent soon, we promise,”
added Carly McKillip. - The Vancouver Province - September 13, 2010

for “supporting us since the day
we were born” and “for letting us live
at home for free.”
“We’ll pay rent soon, we promise,”
added Carly McKillip. - The Vancouver Province - September 13, 2010


The past six months have
been intense for country
sister duo One More Girl.
The pair of Carly and Britt
McKillip spent the better part
of the year finalizing the details
of their major label deal with
Interscope, which they finally
signed just over a week ago.
Their newly minted contract
makes them the Maple Ridgebred
sisters the only country act
on Interscope in North America
and, considering the label
is home to acts like Lady Gaga,
they hope it will allow them to
cross over from country into
pop.
One More Girl are already a
bit of a household name in Canada,
having toured extensively
supporting their 2009 debut
album Big Sky, opening on big
tours for the likes of country
superstar Toby Keith, among
others.
With an Interscope deal and
a new album set to be released
next year, One More Girl have
set their sights on breaking into
the U.S. market.
“The new album is going to
be different since a lot of the
songs were written by Britt and
myself,” Carly said.
Most of the material on Big
Sky had consisted of collaborations
or songs penned by other
songwriters such as Gretchen
Wilson and Victoria Banks.
“This album is probably going
to have more of a pop-rock flair
to it, which we love,” she added.
“But it will definitely keep the
country roots.”
It’s something one can already
hear on their latest single Fall
Like That, which buzzes with
an electric pop-rock vibe while
retaining its country backbone.
“If anything, we felt that on
the first album, because we
were new, there was a little bit
more of a criteria to meet as far
as radio guidelines go,” Carly
said. “We had to make sure to
be careful about adding too
much pop or rock influence.
This time around, because it’s
not just a Canadian release,
we felt like we were able to get
away with a little bit more. We
feel like we’re being a little bit
more true to ourselves.”
“Carly and I love all music,”
Britt added. “We never really
stuck to one genre. We worship
Lady Gaga, we love Katy Perry,
Kings of Leon and John Mayer.
We listen to everything.”
Before the pair heads out to
Los Angeles and Nashville to
begin working on their forthcoming
album, One More Girl
will have the honour of opening
the PNE’s Summer Nights
concert series, which will
also feature the likes of Crystal
Shawanda, Kenny Rogers,
Chris Isaak, Stereos and more
through Labour Day.
For the girls — Carly is 22,
Britt is 20 — the PNE will
always bring back fond childhood
memories.
“We always wanted to be able
to perform on that stage,” Carly
said. “One of the first concerts
we ever did was at the PNE. We
were part of a talent competition.
I think we were something
like 10 and 12. ... So we’re really
excited. We’re going to rock it
out big time. We have the biggest
band we’ve played with all
summer — there’s going to be
seven of us on stage. It’s going
to be a long show — a 90-minute
set with lots of new songs,
tons of really cool covers. It’s
just going to be a big party.”
Of course, the PNE experience
wouldn’t be complete without
catching a ride or two before
the show.
“Oh, hell yeah,” Carly said.
“My sister isn’t a huge ride person
but I plan on doing every
ride there.”
As for potentially getting sick
right before performing, Carly
wasn’t worried a single bit.
“I have an iron stomach,”
she said. “I don’t know what’s
wrong with me.”

Bio

They’re called One More Girl. Except, actually, they’re two.
It’s the contradictory sorta thing you’re going to get from this pair, that ineffably paradoxical, off-balance, “Huh?” factor. It’s what they do.

Just take the music: There isn’t really a category for the country-alt-rock-alt-pop rearing steed One More Girl rides with such riotous abandon, but to judge from the immediate response they get every time they lean into a microphone, what the hell – they’ve become their own genre.

Not for nothing do they illicit breathless, standing O’s from jaded, SWAG-choked radio station staff; not for naught have they been assiduously sought out and signed to multi-release major deals alongside label mates like Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Luke Bryan and Lady Gaga.

Now One More Girl, West Coast Canadian sisters Britt and Carly McKillip – 22 and 24 respectively – are excited to announce the next step in their uncompromising march to the top: through their association with manager Jim Cressman, One More Girl will be the newest addition to the Open Road Recordings family.

In the past 18 months – thanks to label deals with both EMI Music and Interscope Records – One More Girl have 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), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) and Linda Perry (Get The Party Started, Beautiful) to Billy Steinberg (Like A Virgin, True Colors), Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow) and many others.

The result is a rich and varied catalogue of new material, now in the final stages of recording. The first mixes of the upcoming CD are a group of heady, passionate songs that somehow perfectly straddle the fence between country, pop and rock. The indefinable One More Girl sound remains…..unique, pristine but somehow raw………and exudes a new level of maturity and confidence that contradicts their ages, but at the same time speaks to their own generation. As well as addressing the universal themes of love and loss, many of these new songs issue the challenge to never settle, always march to a different drummer, and above all, subscribe to the belief that anything is possible. Having grown up in a musical – and music business – family, the girls cut their teeth on the mantra “it’s all about the song”, and it shows. The poignant and powerful ‘Wired’ paints a picture of hope and faith in the age-old process of falling in love. At the other end of the spectrum, ‘Run Run Run’ is a modern day, in-your-face ‘Talkin’ Bout My Generation’ with an alt-country edge.

The sophomore album is due for release in January 2014 (just in time for Carly and Britt’s birthdays), and to be followed by an extensive cross-Canada tour……..pretty much old hat for these show biz vets, who belie their youth with fistfuls of dazzling credits. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban and Toby Keith, and just finished up some dates supporting Jason Aldean’s ‘Night Train’ tour. They’ve also performed before thousands at major events like the Calgary Stampede and the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, and were honored with the Canadian Radio Music Award’s ‘Best New Country Artist’ in 2010. The girls took home 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’.
Entertainer, indeed. The first thing audiences notice about One More Girl is that sublime, pristine blend of voices, the sort of razor-cut and effortless harmonies only ever delivered by siblings. Expertly trained siblings, as it turns out. Both McKillip parents are songwriters with a long list of material cut by other artists, while dad – Tom McKillip – is also an award-winning guitarist, band leader and sought-after record producer. Britt and Carly’s fates were sealed at birth.

When – okay, if – people get past the voices they invariably note the One More Girl stage craft, a poise and presence not often seen in artists of any age. Turns out they’ve both spent most of their lives in front of cameras. Britt has been in a ton of movie projects, played a lead in two seasons of the critically acclaimed series ‘Dead Like Me’ and voiced dozens of cartoon characters including Sabrina in ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ and Princess Cadence in ‘My Little Pony’.

Carly, meanwhile, had a recurring role on ABC’s ‘Life As We Know It’ with Kelly Osborne and was the lead Alice McLeod character on CTV’s ‘Alice, I Think’ sitcom. Nice work if you can get it – but for these uber talented sisters, the main gig has always been music.

And now with a freshly inked agreement with Open Road Recordings the music rolls on. “We’re actually more charged up than ever to make a mark for ourselves, and it’s a great big world out there….” says Carly. “We’re so lucky to have our amazing team
