Homeward (June 2016) is a humble attempt to truly define who the Vogts Sisters are as artists and musicians. 

Staying faithful to their love for sad songs, Homeward, calls on their pure and graceful harmonies that reach deep into the heart and soul with themes of love, truth, and honor. 

This first self-produced album compiles ten original works, including award-winning songs, Remain and Wayward Heart, fully embracing the Vogts Sisters distinct style and inspiring growth as acoustic folk artists.

 "Maybe one of the best under-the-radar acts in the roots/string/grass genre' today..." Americana Rhythm Magazine, March 2017 issue.

"Beautiful harmonies . . . emotion filled . . . haunting and sweet . . . well written, beautifully performed and masterfully produced." Renee Eberle, Kansas Bluegrass Broadcast Newsletter Album Review

"The talented  duo unapologetically embrace the power of an acoustic guitar, a fiddle and flawless vocals in this ten track, self-produced  gem....Strong Americana and Folk sensibilities are represented throughout in both the instrumentation and the stories told that are universal to the human condition." Harriett, The Daily Country Album Review

"Various elements converge to make up the magic that is The Vogts Sisters, foremost among them the harmonies—individually, Abigail’s and Maggie’s vocals are merely exquisite, but when they harmonize, they forge beauty of a kind to send shivers up the spine and kindle flames of gold in the heart." James Merinovich, Amazon Customer Review

My Own Dixie (March 2015) showcases ten original songs, 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, KS. 

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 Oklahoma, who round out this album to near perfection, bestowing the Vogts Sisters with wings to fly. 

"The vocal harmonies between the sisters are fantastic time and time again. Each sister has a good voice when singing solo but magic happens when they combine which they luckily do quite often." - Ted Rogen, The Equal Ground, Review.

"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." - Frank Gutch, Jr - No Depression, Review.

"Each [of the songs] were written by Maggie, who remains the lead songwriter of the duo, but the magic wouldn’t be there were it not for younger sister Abigail’s contributions. Those sisterly harmonies are sublime, pure and earthy..." - Vickye - For the Country Record, Review.

"Enchanting. Captivating. Delightful. The Vogts Sisters first original album, My Own Dixie is all of those things; an album blending Folk, Americana and Bluegrass into something graceful and pristine, filled with harmonies and instrumentation that are absolutely gorgeous." - Tara - The Daily Country, Review

Old Time Noise (Fall 2012) offers a vulnerable, sincere approach to old-timey Folk and Americana. The majority of the music on this album are covers from favorite artist, Gillian Welch. Also included are three original songs. Maggie's first inspirational, Rainy Days, will embrace you with its message, while the haunting chorus of the ballad Lila Jean will take you deep into the rugged Rocky Mountains. Cotton Waltz will captivate you with its distinctive melody and will stay with you long after the music has ended.

"Sweet and classy, Old Time Noise by The Vogts Sisters, is the kind of music the whole family can enjoy. With its down-home feel, beautiful harmonies and just a touch of sass…it’s the kind of music that’s as timeless as the sound from the mountain hollows, with a freshness that draws you in for more." - Joanne Bischof, award-winning author of the Cadence of Grace series


"The Vogts Sisters present us with a beautiful tribute to the songs of Gillian Welch. As a fan of Welch, I was apprehensive about the girls' approach but was pleasantly surprised. The sparse acoustic instruments with the girls' angelic harmonies add a beautiful innocence that is in direct contrast to Gillian's world-weary sound and yet it fits." - Edmundo Cabrera, Amazon Customer Review
