Sia

Adelaide, Australia (2000 – present)

Sia Kate Isobelle Furler (born 18 December 1975) or simply Sia, is an Australian pop, downtempo, and jazz singer and songwriter. In 2000, her single, “Taken for Granted” was a top 10 hit in the United Kingdom. Her 2008 album, Some People Have Real Problems peaked in the top 30 on the Billboard 200. At the ARIA Music Awards of 2009, she won the award for ‘Best Music DVD’ and received six nominations at the ARIA Music Awards of 2010 and won ‘Best Independent Release’ and ‘Best Pop Release’ for We Are Born and ‘Best Video’ for the song “Clap Your Hands”.

In 2000, the Adelaide born singer scored a bolt from the blue Top 10 hit with her debut single, Taken for Granted. Pairing her unique Australian drawl with the strident strings from Sergei Prokofiev’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’, the track was championed by Trevor Nelson and had Sia performing live on Jo Whiley’s Radio 1 show. Her debut album, Healing Is Difficult, arrived to similar cries of ´the next big R&B thing’. Then, to cap it all, she added her jazzy slurs to two tracks on Zero 7’s Simple Things album and became the unmistakable voice of the year’s coolest down-tempo soundtrack. All the pieces for a phenomenal career seemed to be in place.

And then nothing.

“I went a bit mental after that,” she explains, before letting out a laugh that would stop traffic. “No seriously, I needed therapy and everything.” She recovers her composure only long enough to explain that going from hero to zero left her confused and frustrated and that it was a really enjoyable time, those moments of feeling like a ‘Coolio’! But sadly they’ve passed now.
