Kelsie Hogue, known professionally as Sir Babygirl, is a pop singer, songwriter, and performer.
Hogue was born in Palo Alto, California, and raised in New Hampshire. She studied drama at Boston University before moving back to New Hampshire, where she played in the Boston hardcore scene and developed the "Sir Babygirl" persona on Instagram.
Her musical influences include hardcore, pop punk, as well as early-2000s pop artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Hogue is drawn to the excesses and humor of pop music, but as a non-binary and bisexual person, wants to make pop that speaks to the queer experience, stating, "I always wanted to blur the lines, and challenge people to see that women and marginalized genders in music can have a fucking sense of humor and be taken seriously."
Her debut album, Crush on Me, was released on Father/Daughter records in February, 2019. Hogue wrote and produced the album in her bedroom studio, starting in 2016. Pitchfork gave the album a 6.8 out of 10 rating, describing it as "likely to be among the year’s most extra albums."
