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 he 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 nonbinary and bisexual person, wants to make pop that speaks to the queer experience, stating in Rolling Stone: "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."
His debut album, Crush on Me, was released on Father/Daughter records in February 2019. A remastered version with bonus tracks, titled Crush on Me: BICONIC EDITION was released later that same year.
Regarding her performing name, Hogue has said, "I had a really shitty ex in the Boston music scene. We were thinking of crazy queer girl names for a possible duo, and I was like, 'Sir Babygirl.' It was this beautiful indication that we should never be together—she was just like, 'That is so extra. That is so much.' I was like, 'Maybe it’s just enough.'"
