Sister is a British "sophisti-pop" group best known worldwide
for their 1986 song "Breakout". Other hits include "Twilight World",
"Waiting Game" and a remake of "Am I the Same Girl?" Though their album
sales in the U.S. and Europe have leveled off since the 1980s, they
continue to attract a loyal fanbase. The group is also very popular in
Although Swing Out Sister is currently a duo, they began as a trio
in the UK. The group was formed by Andy
Connell (keyboards) and Martin
Jackson (drums), and were later joined by Corinne Drewery (vocals). The name
came from a 1945 movie starring Arthur Treacher, called Swing Out,
Sister, and they claim they chose the name because it was the only
thing the band could agree on, in that they all hated it. Both Connell
and Jackson had been playing in other bands prior to forming SOS, while
Drewery was actually a fashion designer and model before she became the
band's lead vocalist.
In 2008 and 2009, Swing Out Sister went back on tour and appeared at
the Jakarta Convention Center then toured several venues in Tokyo,
Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka and in the Philippines.
The song "O Pesadelo Dos Autores" from the album "The Living Return" (1994) features a medley of cover versions of "Brazilian Rhyme", "Celebration Suite", "Come With Me", "My Cherie Amour", "The Smiling Hour", and "Butterfly".
In 2002, Swing Out Sister and female Japanese singer Akiko recorded a cover version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Waters of March".
In September 2005, Swing Out Sister's version of "Am I the Same
Girl?" was used for promos of Martha Stewart's new NBC show Martha. The
song was later used as the introductory theme song of the show.
