White Sister

White Sister was one of those bands that never quite achieved the success it deserved. Despite being signed to a major label, working with a well-known producer and writing songs that bettered their more well-known peers on more than one occasion, vocalist/bassist Dennis Churchill-Dries and company struggled to keep their heads above water throughout most of the Eighties. White Sister released two albums, a self-titled debut – produced by Angel’s Gregg Giuffria - and ‘Fashion by Passion’.
