The Secret Sisters On World Cafe (World Cafe, January 3, 2011, NPR)

The Secret Sisters are off to a good start in the music world. Backed by the legendary Jack White, their debut album (produced by White) was just released via Third Man Records. It's full of old-time country and folk, complete with a Johnny Cash cover and the two sisters' take on "Wabash Cannonball."

Members Laura and Lydia Rogers grew up surrounded by music, with a family history full of musicians. According to the two astounding harmonizers, their love of song came from all sides — church, cousins, mother, father. Honing their skills at family picnics and church functions, the two were no doubt musically influenced by their environment. Hailing from Muscle Shoals, Ala., their close connections to each other and their surroundings shows in their music.
