The secret sisters
YOU DON’T OWN ME ANYMORE (2017)

After the release of their sophomore effort Put Your Needle Down in 2014 and the subsequent dissolution of their major record label deal, The Secret Sisters retreated home to Alabama and tried to embrace what seemed to be a future without music. But when Brandi Carlile offered to produce their next record, The Secret Sisters found themselves in a more creative and honest space than ever. The resulting songs of You Don’t Own Me Anymore are about life when everything you think defines you is stripped away. It’s a document of hardship and redemption, of pushing forward when it would be so much easier to drown in grief. And it’s a story about how passion and pure artistry can be the strongest sort of salvation.


"They're complete fucking unicorns and I couldn't stay away. I remember the first time I ever heard them sing and I literally could not believe that it was happening in real life. They were and continue to be two of the most stunning singers in the world." Brandi Carlile to Rolling Stone Country

“...the 12-track set is a marvel of quiet grandeur and steely Southern pragmatism.” AllMusic
