Sister John are four multi-instrumentalists from Glasgow, formed around the songwriting of Amanda McKeown.
Released in September 2017, their debut album ‘Returned From Sea‘ was described as “The sound the Velvet Underground would make if Lou Reed wrote for Vashti Bunyan instead of Nico” and “One of the minor triumphs of 2017, a gorgeous, sparse record” – The Skinny
‘Returned From Sea‘ received support from BBC Radio Scotland’s Roddy Hart and Janice Forsyth, Pete Paphides on Soho Radio, and Guy Garvey on BBC Radio 6 Music.
Their much anticipated eponymous second album was released in January 2019. Pushing forward their ‘lo-fi lush’ sound, ‘Sister John’ added strut and swagger to the folk-infused soundscapes and layered harmonies of ‘Returned From Sea’. Described as “The Beatles jamming with John Cale”, ‘Sister John’ received widespread play across BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 6 Music.
Their third long player "I Am By Day" is released on 30th July 2021 by Last Night From Glasgow.
Sister John are Amanda McKeown, Jonathan Lilley, Sophie Pragnell, and Heather Phillips.
Broken Chanter is the adopted name of David MacGregor. MacGregor spent the past decade as the principal songwriter of Scottish Alt-Pop darlings Kid Canaveral - a band that could get you to dance, laugh, and weep all in the space of a set. The first Broken Chanter album is a record which paints an emotional and expansive soundscape with a distinct sense of place, that showcases MacGregor's ear for melody and dexterity at tugging heart-strings. It was released into the world in September 2019 by Olive Grove Records and Last Night From Glasgow.
Annie Booth is an Edinburgh-based singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. With a keen ear for melody and movingly bittersweet compositions, she is a unique and fiercely emotive voice in the Scottish music scene, her songs woven with a subtle but exciting patchwork of styles and sounds.
Writing stories and poems from a young age, Booth moved to Edinburgh in 2013 for university – it was there she met her long-time friends and current band members. In 2015 she also joined prolific dark-folk rockers Mt. Doubt after being approached by frontman Leo Bargery, following a turn on their single ‘Soak’; this led to appearances at festivals such as T in the Park and Belladrum.
Labels Last Night From Glasgow and Scottish Fiction collaborated on releasing Annie’s affecting debut album ‘An Unforgiving Light‘ in late 2017 to much critical acclaim. The rock, folk and pop-inflected record was lauded as Roddy Hart’s Record of Note (BBC Radio Scotland), was featured in Vic Galloway’s Best Albums of 2017 and received praise from and frequent rotation by Jim Gellatly and Amazing Radio.
