The Secret Sisters (USA)

The Secret Sisters, last at Tønder Festival in 2018, are back. Sisters Laura and Lydia Randers from Muscle Shoals in Alabama have won admiration for their distinctive vocal sound which has been compared to the Everly Brothers. The style is country and folk with an unmistakable dash of pop. Life in the music business is sometimes a roller-coaster; The Secret Sisters can testify to that. In 2010, the duo got off to a flying start with their debut album The Secret Sisters, recorded in Nashville and produced by Dave Cobb and T Bone Burnett. On the live scene, the sisters supported the likes of Ray LaMontagne, Levon Helm and Bob Dylan. Their second album Put Your Needle Down, produced by T Bone Burnett, came out in 2014. This album did not do as well as the record company had hoped, and they dropped The Secret Sisters. Without a company behind them, their earnings fell away, and the two sisters, on the brink of bankruptcy, took on cleaning work to get by. Laura and Lydia Randers clawed their way back with a new label, and with Brandi Carlile producing, the album You Don’t Own Me Anymore (2017) brought The Secret Sisters back on top. Their only Danish festival concert in 2020.
