Acclaimed duo The Secret Sisters are nominated for two awards at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards: Best Folk Album (Saturn Return) and Best American Roots Song (“Cabin”). In celebration of the accolades, the real-life sisters, Laura and Lydia Rogers, are debuting a new acoustic performance video for “Cabin” today. Watch/share HERE.

Produced by Brandi Carlile, Tim Hanseroth and Phil Hanseroth, Saturn Return was released earlier this year on New West Records (stream/purchase here) and finds the duo with a new creative focus, singing individually for the first time instead of relying solely on their trademark harmonies. Following the release, Laura and Lydia were featured on “CBS This Morning” as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series performing three songs from the album: “Late Bloomer,” “Nowhere Baby” and “Hold You Dear.”

See below for complete tour itinerary.

Named after the astrological occurrence that takes place approximately every 29 ½ years, the album heralds the arrival of a new era for Laura and Lydia—both of whom experienced extreme change and transformation during the making of the record. Grappling with the grief of losing both grandmothers, while also both becoming first-time mothers, the sisters reflect on their world view, relationships and own mortality through the album’s ten songs.

Of the album, the sisters share,

“As we age, we face obstacles that are beyond our control. Some forces are internal: insecurity, anxiety, fear. Some are external: the loss of loved ones, an unjust system and the fragility of time. Yet the mark of maturity is how you respond when you realize you’re not in control. Where do you find your resilience?

This album is a reflection of us coming to terms with how to find our power in the face of an unfair world. These songs lead listeners past ‘where happy man searches, to a place only mad women know.’ We question our purpose, our relationships, our faith. Trading the fears of our youth for the dread that rages within us as mature women. 

 Saturn Return, our hope is that women can feel less alone in their journey through the modern world. We need each other more than we ever have; the less competition and the more inclusiveness and understanding, the better. We are southern women in the 21st century, convicted by our beliefs.”

Originally from Muscle Shoals, AL, The Secret Sisters have released three acclaimed full-length albums since debuting in 2010 including their most recent, 2017’s You Don’t Own Me Anymore, which was produced by Carlile and the Hanseroth twins and received a nomination for Best Folk Album at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
