Rolling Stone praised The Secret Sisters for their “ethereal harmonies” on the album while NPR commented that “Real life sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers are as flawlessly retro as ‘Mad Men’ and as lively and bold as Bettie Page, and their voices ring in impeccable harmonies that soar straight into the Everly Brothers’ territory.” The New York Times commended them for “…writing songs that hark back to vintage country storytelling” and went on to say “it’s no wonder the producer T Bone Burnett teamed up with them; they’re devoted to the rootsy anachronism, the throwback with modern savvy.” The Fort Worth Star-Telegram said, “Like orchids blooming in the swamp, The Secret Sisters embody beauty amid harshness….[they] make music with echoes of the past — everyone from the Everly Brothers and Kitty Wells to Simon & Garfunkel and Emmylou Harris lingers in the background like shadows — that enriches the present day.” And, the UK’s Independent wrote “These songs bounce, buzz and bubble along with timeless life. And jeez louise, those harmonies!”

Photo and Review Roanoke Concert

Hi everybody,
Here is a little review and a photo from the Roanoke concert the Secret Sisters did in Roanoke, the 15th of July 2015.
Thanks to Jane for the photo!

The Secret Sisters

Opening act The Secret Sisters will be back soon. Sister Laura Rogers promised as much toward the end of an intriguing 35-minute set.

That is something to look forward to.
The Muscle Shoals, Alabama-bred Laura and Lydia Rogers brought vocals that crossed girl groups with The Everly Brothers. Over the course of two T-Bone Burnette-produced albums, they have created such a buzz that no less a figure than Bob Dylan gave them their pick of some unfinished songs for a collaboration.
They chose “Dirty Lie,” which is their second and most recent album, “Put Your Needle Down.” But that wasn’t even the strongest song in a set full of strong ones. Instead, “Bad Habit” — from the same disc — earned the sisters and their two sidemen a standing ovation, rare for an opening act.
As the minor key waltz came to a crescendo, the Rogers’ harmonies electrified.
Yep, get back here soon, sisters.”
