You Don't Own Me Anymore CD review - You Don't Own Me Anymore
Three albums into their career, the evolution of The Secret Sisters provide a thoroughly enjoyable experience for the listener. The beauty of their harmonies was evident from the first note, but their songwriting has progressed to the point that it deserves equal attention. "You Don't Own Me Anymore" is a high point for both their singing and writing abilities, mixing classic country music with modern Americana with a heavy dose of Faulkner-esque Southern Gothic atmosphere. »»»
Put Your Needle Down CD review - Put Your Needle Down
There are some major changes and some not so big major changes on the second disc from Laura and Lydia Rogers, aka The Secret Sisters.

The Secret Sisters CD review - The Secret Sisters
T-Bone Burnett has produced albums from greats like Elvis Costello and B.B. King, so albums with his name on the back cover credits have a reputation to uphold. The debut album from The Secret Sisters certainly delivers. Made up of sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers, the women display gorgeous harmonies and a sunny flair that keeps their old school covers feeling fresh and young. The album has two original songs and otherwise features nine covers by artists such as Hank Williams and Buck Owens. »»»

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Live, Shelley proves she's the real deal – After the concert, Joan Shelley was greeted by a fan at the near sold-out club who had never seen her before.

The fan walked away mighty impressed -based on her comments - and it was easy to see why.... »»»
