The Rogers Sisters were an American indie rock band from Brooklyn, active from 1999 to 2007, composed of sisters Laura Rogers and Jennifer Rogers and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Miyuki Furtado.

History[edit]

The Rogers Sisters formed in 1999 after the breakup of Ruby Falls.[1] The group released its debut on Troubleman Unlimited in 2002. The album's cover featured a Xerox collage portrait of George W. Bush.[2] Following its release, the group embarked on tours of the United States as well as the United Kingdom.[1] A sophomore effort, Three Fingers, followed on the same label in 2004. After signing to Too Pure, the group re-released Three Fingers and toured the UK and US again. Tours in Europe and Australia followed before releasing their most recent effort, The Invisible Deck, in 2006.

The group disbanded in 2007.

Furtado has since started three bands, Divining Rod,[3] Dead Sands.[4] and Fum Fum Fyes.[5] He also currently drums for instrumental post-rock quartet, Vivid Low Sky[6] and was a member of Brooklyn bands Midnight Masses[7] and Shock Cinema[8]
