Swing Out Sister

Although Swing Out Sister's music is unashamedly commercial pop, their impeccable indie credentials (keyboardist Andy Connell and drummer Martin Jackson were formerly of A Certain Ratio and Magazine, and singer Corrine Drewery had no professional experience at all before joining), jazz-tinged arrangements, and knack for clever hooks move them closer to the indie dance territory of St. Etienne or late period Everything But the Girl than to the cookie-cutter dance-pop of Kylie Minogue or Paula Abdul.

Connell and Jackson formed Swing Out Sister in their hometown of Manchester, England, in 1985 as a studio-based partnership set to refine the jazzy funk of A Certain Ratio and Magazine's quirky reimaginings of old-fashioned middle-of-the-road pop. Nottingham-born singer Drewery joined the duo just in time for their first single, "Blue Mood," in late 1985. That single didn't do much, but the follow-up, "Breakout," was a Top Ten hit in Great Britain and Japan in the fall of 1986. The trio belatedly completed debut album It's Better to Travel in 1987; its U.S. release scored a pair of hits with "Breakout" and "Twilight World." Jackson demoted himself to partial contributor on 1989's Kaleidoscope World, which emphasized the remaining duo's debt to lush '60s pop by hiring the legendary Jim Webb to arrange and conduct the orchestra. Though the singles "You on My Mind" and "Waiting Game" were U.K. hits, the album didn't attract much attention in the U.S. In Japan, however, both albums were big enough hits that a special Japan-only collection of remixes, Another Non-Stop Sister, was released in late 1989, followed by the similar Swing 3 in 1990, which also collected early B-sides and other rare tracks.

Released in 1992, Get in Touch with Yourself returned Drewery and Connell (Jackson had by this time bowed out completely) to the U.S. and U.K. charts with their cover of Barbara Acklin's "Am I the Same Girl," a '60s pop hit based on the famous instrumental "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt Unlimited. The single was even bigger in Japan, where Swing Out Sister were by this time one of the most popular acts in the country. Another remix compilation, Swing Out Singles, and a live album, Live at the Jazz Cafe, were released in Japan that year. After 1994's The Living Return failed to chart in Great Britain, the U.K. office of Mercury Records put out 1996's The Best of Swing Out Sister but failed to release 1997's Shapes and Patterns, 1999's Filth and Dreams, or 2001's Somewhere Deep in the Night in the duo's native country -- this despite Swing Out Sister's continued success in Japan and a devoted cult following in the U.S. and Europe. EMI was the worldwide label for 2004's Where Our Love Grows. Live in Tokyo appeared a year later, followed in 2008 by Beautiful Mess, the group's ninth studio album. In 2010, Swing Out Sister issued Private View, a new album that was available exclusively through their Facebook page. The year 2012 marked the 25th anniversary of the band's debut album, It's Better to Travel, which was reissued as a deluxe two-disc set. Later that year, Private View (with two bonus tracks) saw CD release through normal distribution channels. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Awesome group....lov e the sound! !!!!
Corrine has one of the best voice ever. You never get tired of. She has great style and stays true to her self. What a beauty.
Mama didn't rise no fool....very clever version...ju s t love this band.
Man, I like the live CD/Tokyo.
Love Swing out sister
Very nice, love the beat. Let's get up and dance, now.
Basia's band before she went solo. This band set the stage for her successful solo career. This band is almost as good as Basia herself.
Love you Basia. Your concerts were terrific.
Saw them in Boca Raton FL this summer AND got to do the VIP meet-n-greet backstage. Corrine was super nice in person, nearly as tall as me. I told her it was a lifetime goal to see her live and I got a hug to seal it! I also told the club owner to bring them back often!

The live album to which I was referring was the 2005 Live in Tokyo.

I too just saw them in Atlanta. The show was off the scale! Check their website for their current background vocalists. I believe the female vocalist (Gina) with them on their current tour is the same female backup you hear on this live album.

Wow after all these years they still have it I just saw them a few days ago in Atlanta and it was great every minute of the performance.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be
So Sassy! So Cool! Like a Gin and Tonic,or the sound of a Vibraphone! That is Corrine Drewery!
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO ARE THE BACKROUND SINGERS ?
jbtaurus69

Swing out sister, the unsung heroes

I've loved them from back in the 80's. Blue-eyed silky soul.

follow me i'll make sure i follow back asap :D
I've been blessed to see SOS three times Chicago, Toronto,and NYC with the kids...... Awesome!
I miss my London days....they were so cool and hip just like SwingOut Sister.
I remember Blue Mood and Breakout from the '80s but Something Every Day sounds soulful. I didn't know they had it in them. I might have to check this album out.
Indie credentials? WTF are they talking about? I actually had the fortune to see SOS in NYC back in the early 90's after Get In Touch With Yourself came out. They are even better live than on record.
I have been a fan of this group for over twenty years I still have their first album
From the beginning to whenever, SOS is a sound that never gets old!
Me too. I have been a fan of SOS since the 1980s. They make really good feel music.
Get in touch with yourself is easily one of the slickest and best produced jazzy pop albums of all time. What a sound!!!
colelloj
Been loving their music since they first started!!
bee27534
I teach college anatomy and one day I was listening to some favorites I had recorded on my MP3 plugged into my classroom computer while I set up a lab test for my students. A student tapped on the door and asked me to "turn the volume up so we can hear that great music, too!"
I had SOS, Matt Bianco, EBTG etc. playing.
Good music transcends generations.
adamsd315
i love this sound, i was living in detroit when i first heard this group perform, wjzz was the station that carried their music.
Agree Bee. SOS is like a timeless classic that grows with you...
bee27534
"unashamedly commercial pop". Love it when critics say this.
You mean they make music that is melodic, pleasing, positive and appeals to people other than angst-laden teenagers, stoners and the chronically angry? How gauche of them.

I listen to music to feel good and SOS does it for me.




Love Corrine's voice and style...what a great sound. Happy music.
terryj14
They have toured the US (selected cities) in 2007 and 2009 and were due again in 2010, until all the flights were shut down due to the volcano. Follow them on Facebook - lots of info there and special releases. Love them - Andy is so innovative and Corrine's voice is getting richer and deeper. "Beautiful Mess" was the last release - lovely. Their catalog is so deep - fab music.
I wish to heck they'd tour the US, but that just isn't gonna happen.
she's one of the best of the sound call eurojazz!
Fresh as the first time I heard their music!
what great music! Sophisticate d and jazzy, very urban downtown feel-night out in NY or LA, a nice touch of Motown and Brazil-can't beat SOS. Too bad more people don't know about their music.
bobbyb237
Swing Out Sister always makes me feel better. Corrine's voice is joyful.
rfight7
Corrine has one of the greatest voices ever!
Yeat another funky, soulful British group(Loose Ends, Incognito, Brand New Heavies, etc.). I love them ALL! And, they 'KILL' Am I the same girl!
