PRODUCER T BONE BURNETT TO RELEASE THE SECRET SISTERS’ DEBUT ALBUM

the sistersGrammy winning producer T Bone Burnett will be presenting and releasing Universal Republic singing duo The Secret Sisters – and their highly anticipated, self-titled debut album– on a brand new Universal Republic label created by Burnett especially for this release: Beladroit Records. The album will be in stores October 5, 2010. The Alabama-reared siblings, Laura and Lydia Rogers, whose new album is steeped in the familial camaraderie and mesmerizing harmonies braced by their Mussel Shoals roots, recorded their inaugural musical effort at Nashville’s renowned Blackbird Studio. Produced by revered country knob-turner Dave Cobb (Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson), and executive-produced by Burnett, The Secret Sisters’ sound captured on their debut has been described by Burnett as “as close to ‘pure’ as it gets, and I’ve been doing this for forty years.” The multiple-Grammy winner’s enthusiasm for The Secret Sisters attests to their burgeoning stature as one of the year’s rare musical finds: “In The Secret Sisters, you can hear the history of rural American music from the 1920s and a reverence for every musical genre since,” stated T Bone Burnett. “Popular music requires the absolute honesty of The Secret Sisters, and I’m thrilled to be involved in presenting them to the world.” Scheduled to hit stores and online platforms this fall, The Secret Sisters was recorded in a marathon two-week recording time frame. The producers also brought in vintage analogue recording equipment and vintage microphones, determined to properly capture The Secret Sisters’ magical harmonizing and stunning vocal power. The duo’s signature sound is evident on songs such as “Why Don’t Ya Love Me,” Why Baby Why,” and the lilting anthem “Tennessee Me” among others. Hailing direct from the fertile musical territory of Mussel Shoals, AL, The Secret Sisters co-wrote several of the songs on the new album. The girls’ also re-worked found treasures, including the Frank Sinatra classic “Something Stupid” as well as enlisting the support of legendary country musicians such as pedal steel great Robbie Turner and piano legend Pig Robbins, among others. Hear the music and connect with The Secret Sisters  here: August 10th marks the release of The Secret Sisters’ debut 45 with Third Man Records. The Jack White-produced record features a cover of Johnny Cash’s Big River and the sisters’ take on the classic folksong The Wabash Cannonball.
