I’m assuming the Sisters will be performing songs from their upcoming Brandi Carlile produced second release, which is scheduled for a fall 2012 release.
The first time I saw the Muscle Shoals, Alabama’s Secret Sisters ( Laura Rogers Lydia Rogers) was at a GRAMMY event for the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers honoring T Bone Burnett. Burnett’s then recent protégés had just released their self-titled debut album which featured him at the production helm. The Secret Sisters opened the event and I saw what he saw in the performers. Jaded industry folks stopped hobnobbing and stood entranced by the delicate harmony and winning personalities. I was a fan.
The duo recently released a 7 inch with Jack White at Third Man Records and
also played White and and Karen Elson’s divorce party. (apparently this was only a rumor) The Sisters also had their song “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder”, inspired by the Alabama tornado outbreak, featured on the T Bone produced soundtrack for The Hunger Games.
Here’s “Black And Blue,” a new song from the The Secret Sister’s upcoming album live from the stage at Wakarusa
