The Secret Sisters have been through a lot in the last few years, from losing major label support to welcoming new babies into their families, along with other personal and professional landmarks. It’s par for the course around one’s Saturn Return—an occurrence during the end of your 20s, when the trajectory of Saturn returns to the same position it was in when you were born. According to astrology, this is a period of great change in one’s personal life and the duo—Laura Rogers and Lydia Slagle—felt this was an appropriate phenomenon after which to name their new, emotionally stirring, Brandi Carlile-produced album.
During the 2020 30A Songwriters Festival, we chatted with the sisters about all of this and more, as they performed some of the album’s finest songs at the Folk Alley beach house.
