THE SECRET SISTERS GARNER 2018 GRAMMY NOMINATION

BRANDI CARLILE-PRODUCED YOU DON’T OWN ME ANYMORE NOMINATED FOR “BEST FOLK ALBUM”

The Secret Sisters’ Brandi Carlile-produced You Don’t Own Me Anymore has garnered a 2018 GRAMMY Award nomination in the “Best Folk Album” category following its critically acclaimed release this past June. NPR Music calls the album “a set of songs both reflective of tradition and deeply personal,” and American Songwriter adds, "You Don’t Own Me Anymore is a strong, welcome return and a reminder of just how powerful and moving the merging of two stunning voices can be." Watch the video for single “He’s Fine,” which depicts the sisters recording the album with Carlile, via Paste Magazine HERE. You Don’t Own Me Anymore is available now via New West Records. Winners from each category will be announced at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony that will be held on January 28, 2018.

The Secret Sisters’ You Don’t Own Me Anymore is Laura and Lydia Rogers’ first new record in over three years and finds the sisters taking their music to new heights. With production by revered Americana singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, the album is a document of hardship and redemption, a story about how passion and pure artistry can be the strongest sort of salvation. In an in-depth feature with Rolling Stone Country, Carlile commented, "[Laura and Lydia are] 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." Vice’s music site Noisey calls You Don’t Own Me Anymore “gorgeous” and adds, “God help anyone who tries to stand in their way.” Garden & Gun praises, “You Don’t Own Me Anymore showcases the Secret Sisters at the top of their craft,” while the Los Angeles Times notes the record’s “hauntingly spare arrangements of songs that revel in Southern Gothic themes, which soar through their exquisite sibling harmonies,” and AllMusic calls the set “a marvel of quiet grandeur and steely Southern pragmatism.” In celebration of the release, The Secret Sisters appeared on CBS This Morning Saturday for a stunning, three-song performance which can be seen HERE. They are currently wrapping up a North American tour through December 10 and have announced additional 2018 dates, which include an appearance at the 30A Songwriter Festival in January followed by more headlining U.S. shows and an extensive Spring European tour. Please see below for full tour details.
