Songstress Style: The Secret Sisters
The word is out about the Misses Laura and Lydia Rogers: musical luminaries like T. Bone Burnett and Jack White have endorsed these sister songbirds and produced their tracks, and they're currently on tour with Ray Lamontagne. I first heard about these lovely ladies over at Q's Daydream this fall, and ever since then I've been smitten with their old-fashioned close-harmony tunes and adorable vintage aesthetic. Their traditional country and Americana songs ring with authenticity, for the girls are indeed a modern Carter Family act: prior to the audition that landed them their record deal, they'd never performed outside of their church in their rural Alabama hometown! They seem so refreshingly earnest, and they have serious talent as well, with sibling harmony chops to rival the Everly Brothers.
And if their rootsy old-time country songs aren't enough to sway you, check out their victory rolls, perfect red lipstick, and cute 1940s looking print dresses! They are always turned out in a lovely retro style reminiscent of the rural Southern landscape and dusty country music halls from which their lyrics sprung. Their sweet style and sweeter songs are so inspiring to me this spring!
