Sister John's 3rd LP "I Am By Day" will be released by Last Night From Glasgow and featuring the singles "How Can I Keep It Alive" and "In My Place", the album finds the band in expansive musical mood.

Sister John are a band of four multi-instrumentalists from Glasgow, formed around the songwriting of Amanda McKeown.

When we first heard their debut album, 'Returned From Sea', we described it as "stunning really, really properly beautiful, it feels like our very own Tupelo Honey or Music From Big Pink, something quite exceptional". 'Returned From Sea' explores themes of loss and redemption, the individual in the world and the tangibility of the past in the present. 'Returned From Sea' received support from BBC Radio Scotland's Roddy Hart and Janice Forsyth, and Guy Garvey on BBC Radio 6 Music. With barely a pause, their much anticipated eponymous second album was released in January 2019. The band launched the album at a sold out gig at Glasgow's Poetry Club before making their first appearance in London at a sell-out show at the Sebright Arms, with more shows coming this year including at Long Division Festival in June. 'Sister John' has been Record of Note on BBC Radio Scotland, and first single, 'I'm The One', single of the week on BBC Radio Scotland, featuring on the shows of Roddy Hart, Vic Galloway, Janice Forsyth, Natasha Raskin-Sharp, Rapal, and also picked up by Amy Lamé at BBC Radio 6 Music. Pushing forward their 'lo-fi lush' sound, 'Sister John' adds driving indy rock, killer vocals, and strut and swagger to the folk-infused dramatic soundscapes and layered harmonies of 'Returned From Sea'. It pushes their sound to the edges, exploring darker corners albeit with a wry smile.
