Biography

Shakespears Sister is a British-Irish/American pop and alternative rock musical act that was formed in 1988 by singer–songwriter Siobhan Fahey, a former member of Bananarama. Based in the United Kingdom, Shakespears Sister was initially a solo act, but by 1989 it had become a duo with the addition of the American musician Marcella Detroit. Together they released two Top 10 albums and a string of Top 40 hits, including the 1992 hit ‘Stay’ which peaked at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart for eight consecutive weeks. Detroit was sacked from the band in 1993, leaving Fahey as the sole member again until she ended the project in 1996. After working under her own name for some years, Fahey revived the Shakespears Sister name in 2009.

In May 2019, it was announced that Fahey and Detroit would reunite on stage later in the year. A UK tour, titled Shakespears Sister Ride Again, was announced during the same month, and is scheduled to launch in Nottingham on 31 October 2019. A new single, ‘All the Queen’s Horses’, was released on 15 May, with an accompanying music video. This was followed by the compilation album, SINGLES PARTY, in July 2019.

The duo performed ‘Stay’ on The Graham Norton Show on 10 May 2019; their first TV performance together since 1993. They also announced that they were recording an EP of new material. The EP RIDE AGAIN was released on 25 October 2019, preceded by the single ‘When She Finds You’ released 4 September 2019. The single is a collaboration with Richard Hawley. Hawley also appears in the accompanying music video.

The discography of UK-based pop-rock act Shakespears Sister consists of four studio albums, five compilation albums, one EP, and seventeen singles. Originally a solo act consisting of ex-Bananarama member Siobhan Fahey, it eventually evolved into a duo between Fahey and Marcella Detroit. They released their debut studio album SACRED HEART in 1989, which reached number 9 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified gold by the BPI. The album’s lead single, double A Side ‘Break My Heart / Heroine’ did not chart, the second single however, ‘You’re History’, reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart, and managed similar top 20 success internationally. Their next three singles, ‘Run Silent’, ‘Dirty Mind’, and ‘Goodbye Cruel World’ (the lead single from their second album HORMONALLY YOURS), all failed to peak within the UK top 50. The second single from HORMONALLY YOURS Yours, ‘Stay’ was the group’s first and only number 1, staying at the top position for 8 weeks. The song also reached number 1 in Ireland and Sweden, and peaked within the top 5 in several other territories. The album peaked at number 3 in the UK and was certified double platinum, and reached similar success in international territories. The fifth and final single from the album, ‘My 16th Apology’, was not a commercial success due to both members being on hiatus at the time.
