Artist Biography Available in: Shakespears Sister are a British-based pop-rock band formed by Irish-born singer-songwriter Siobhan Fahey in 1988, with plaudits including a BRIT Award and Ivor Novello Award. It was Fahey's first musical outing since leaving Bananarama, and initially a solo project. American backing vocalist and guitarist Marcella Detroit began working with Fahey in 1989 which led to a partnership and Shakespears Sister became a duo as of their 1989 hit single "You're History". After a string of hit singles and two successful albums, tensions between Fahey and Detroit led to a split in 1993. Fahey resumed as the sole member until 1996. In 2009, after a 13-year hiatus, Fahey resurrected the band to release a new album, Songs from the Red Room.
