ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Touring throughout the year in and around Kansas, The Vogts Sisters offer graceful performances, blending timeless Americana, Folk, and Bluegrass music with sweet sister harmony. The sister duo released their debut album in fall of 2012, and now offer their first all-original album, My Own Dixie, recorded at Hall of Fame Music Studio in Neodesha, KS. A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch.

“The Vogts Sisters are amazing,” said Larry Brockway, producer and engineer at Hall of Fame Music Studio. “Their harmonies rival some of the finest duets in the business. Add that to their poignant and beautifully written songs, and you have two young ladies that will be very successful artists.”

My Own Dixie showcases 10 original songs, written and arranged by Maggie Vogts, including award-winning title Ballad of a Love Miscast, a 2014 Indie-International Songwriting Competition folk-division winner. Wrong, another album tune, was selected and performed for the NewSong Showcase at the 2014 Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield.

The lyrical maturity and growth on this album shows heart and depth in the sisters’ approach to harmony. Accompanying the girls on fiddle, mandolin, and bass are the Eicher Family (Shelby, Isaac, and Nathan), professional musicians from Tulsa, OK, who round out this album to near perfection, bestowing the Vogts Sisters with wings to fly.

The Vogts--- My Own Dixie
There are ten originals here and you get more in these ten than you do in many albums worth of the so-called hits and even the top charters on the Americana charts. Mostly light and flowing, the songs wash over rather than accost you. Much of it, of course, can be attributed to those angelic voices, but the songs themselves are a step above the norm. The two which rip my heart out are “Guitar Man,” a hauntingly gorgeous look at heartbreak a la another of my favorite duos, Dala (if you have not heard them, it is time you have), though Dala lives in a Pop wonderland as opposed to the Vogts' more rural and spiritual world (although the girls step seamlessly into Dala's world with the excellent pop tune “Better Off Alone”), and “My Own Dixie,” a song lyrically and musically pretty enough to send chills down my spine and sink into myself. In terms of depth, I liken it to one of my favorite Waylon Jennings performances of “The Southland's Bleeding” which appeared on the much-overlooked White Mansions album, for both songs are tied to the land and are heartfelt and emotional.
