The Secret Sisters

Over the past few years, The Secret Sisters have been extremely busy swimming upstream. They’ve toured with Bob Dylan. They lost their label and they filed for bankruptcy. And at one point, they almost gave up music for cleaning houses. From that experience and struggle came their third LP, You Don’t Own Me Anymore, which is produced by Brandi Carlile.

“We are more proud of these songs than we have ever been,” says Laura. “Some of the songs are a little more cryptic, but some of them are very pointed and honest and direct. And we had to let those songs happen. We had to let ourselves be angry again, and bring up things we wanted to forget.””

The Secret Sisters with Lilly Hiatt at Cumberland Caverns Live

Lilly Hiatt’s latest album Trinity Lane was produced by Michael Trent of Shovels & Rope and gets the name from the East Nashville address where Lilly wrote the album after a break-up. Hiatt says,

“Love will take you to the darkest places but also the most honest places if you let it. Learning how to love myself is something I’ve always been lousy with, and I spent some time on that. I thought about my sobriety, what that means to me, the struggles I’d had throughout the years, since I was a 27-year-old and hung up my toxic drinking habit. I thought about my mother, who took her own life when I was a baby, not far from my age at 30 years old, and I related to her more than ever. As you can see, there was plenty of time spent on my own. I found power in being by myself.”

Lilly’s love of the ‘90s alt-rock she was raised on continues to shine through on Trinity Lane in the distressed guitars and urgent backbeats. She cites the Pixies, Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and her favorite, Pearl Jam as influences, but there is also something distinctly Americana lurking in the songs. She continues,

“After a while, I had all these songs to play, and wanted to share them. I wanted to get out of town to get some distance from everything, so after an ongoing conversation with Michael Trent, I took my band to Johns Island, SC and we holed up for a few weeks. I poured my heart out, and trusted them with it, and these guys gave it right back. I think we all understood what it’s like to question home, intention, demons, love…I think most people understand that.”
