Biography

Corinne Drewery (born September 21, 1959, in Nottingham) is the lead singer of the pop duo, Swing Out Sister.

She grew up in Nottingham and the Lincolnshire village of Authorpe and went to South Reston Primary School, then Monks Dyke School and King Edward VI Grammar School in nearby Louth, then Lincoln College. She grew up on the classic pop standards, since her father played in a band which was regular support to big stars like Tom Jones and Sandie Shaw. She was strongly influenced by northern soul, visiting performances at the Winter Gardens in Cleethorpes, and referred to northern soul tracks during an extensive interview on BBC Radio Nottingham. Her mother looks after Authorpe Hedgehog Care.

Drewery moved to London in 1976 to study fashion at the St. Martin’s School of Art and eventually became a fashion designer. But she also sang for short periods with bands like Working Week, and before long she found her musical interests had eclipsed her fashion career.

In 1984 she had a chance meeting with Andy Connell at Manchester’s once-legendary nightclub The Haçienda. Together with Martin Jackson, they eventually formed Swing Out Sister the following year. Apart from singing the lead vocals, Drewery also writes all the lyrics and participates in the composing of the songs together with Connell.
