Some people Have Real Problems
Sia is a vocalist and songwriter of inimitable integrity and individuality. She is also one of the few people in the world who immediately renders me a girl of thirteen face-to-face with her ultimate idol - I ran into her at a tanning salon in LA and acted like a teeny-bopper backstage at a Justin Timberlake concert. Until recently, Sia was the voice of Zero 7’s biggest singles. Then overnight she achieved her American breakthrough as the artist responsible for the musical capstone of the Six Feet Under series when her song “Breathe Me” closed out the finale. On her third solo album, Sia combines the jarring lyrical intimacy of her debut Healing Is Difficult with the whisper-soft instrumentation of her second album, “Colour The Small One”, and creates pop-friendly chill-out with her brazen voice and a lush, layered acoustic sound.
