Sia Kate Isobelle Furler（/ 小号 我ə / SEE -ə ; 1975年12月18日出生）是澳大利亚歌手，词曲作者，声优和导演。她的职业生涯始于1990年代中期在阿德莱德的酸性爵士乐队Crisp中担任歌手。1997年，Crisp解散时，她在澳大利亚发行了首张录音室专辑《OnlySee》。她移居到英国伦敦，并为英国二人组Zero 7演唱。2000年，Sia发行了第二张录音室专辑《Healing Is Difficult》和第三张录音室专辑《Color the Small One》。，但在2004年，所有这些都难以与主流受众建立联系。
Sia于2005年移居纽约，并在美国巡回演出。她的第四张和第五张录音室专辑《某些人有真正的问题》和《我们出生》分别于2008年和2010年发行。每张唱片都被澳大利亚唱片业协会（Australian Recording Industry Association）认证为金牌，并且比她以前的专辑引起了广泛的关注。Sia的名声不佳，Sia停止了表演，在此期间她专注于为其他歌手创作歌曲，并成功合作了《Titanium》（与David Guetta），《Diamonds》（与Rihanna）和《Wild Ones》（与Flo里达）。
2014年，Sia凭借个人第六张唱片专辑《1000 Forms of Fear》在美国Billboard 200 排行榜上首次亮相，从而突破了个人录音艺术家的角色，并产生了十大单曲“ Chandelier ”和音乐录影带三部曲的共同导演由Sia和主演的儿童舞蹈演员Maddie Ziegler主演。从那时起，Sia通常戴一顶假发遮住脸庞，以保护自己的隐私。她的第七张录音室专辑《This Is Acting》（2016年）催生了她的第一张Billboard Hot 100 榜首单曲“ Cheap Thrills ”。同年，Sia 怀念了当下的巡回演唱会，其中包括齐格勒等人的舞蹈和其他表演艺术元素。她的第八张录音室专辑《Everyday Is Christmas》于2017年发行，并于2018年以三首红曲重新发行。在2018年，她与Labrinth和Diplo在LSD乐队中合作，他们于2019年4月发行了同名首张专辑。
在她的职业生涯初期，Sia 与Crisp 和Jamiroquai乐队合作，在澳大利亚和后来的伦敦演出了“酸性爵士乐”。凭借她的第一首个人单曲“ Taken for Grant”，她尝试了跳跳。当她加入零7时，她演唱了节奏下的数字。
随着彩色小单（2004年）和一些人有真正的问题（2007年），她搬进了爵士和电子民谣，尽管这张专辑的最大的打击，“ 呼吸我 ”，被描述为另类摇滚和力量民谣。有些人有真正的问题扩大了她与独立流行音乐的联系。西亚（Sia）说：“ 给小个子上色 ……简直就是便利之王和詹姆斯·泰勒的衍生作品以及Zero 7在[tour]总线上播放的内容。我很容易受到影响。”
2009年，在离开《零零七》之后，Sia完全致力于自己的个人事业。 我们出生（2010），结合了各种流行风格，包括synthpop和R＆B，带有内省性主题，同时伴有更坚持和活泼的节奏。《1000种恐惧形式》（2014年）巩固了她与流行音乐的联系（带有电子流行音乐，雷鬼音乐和嘻哈音乐的痕迹）这部表演主要由Sia与其他女性流行歌手创作的歌曲组成介意，但艺术家没有将歌曲包含在专辑中。西亚将他人的歌曲创作描述为“演戏”。卫报 “小号小鹰帝国评论说，后者的专辑“提供了一个明显的对位到2014新航更多的个人专辑， 1000个表格恐惧，其stonking单，‘吊灯’，解决了她的陶醉过去，这种做法是出于使平原的事实制造–类似于定制的过程。”
This Is Acting（2016）将更多的雷鬼乐和电子流行音乐与更多自省的主题交替出现。在她2016年的现场表演中，Sia的音乐是表演艺术类表演的一部分，涉及舞蹈和戏剧效果。对于MTV新闻作家“ Sia的嗓音，嗓音含糊不清是她的常态”，而Fader撰稿人则指出：“在Billboard Hot 100的风光中，Sia的歌曲创作声音涉及抑郁和成瘾，是单数的-她的实际声音更是如此。” 每天都是圣诞节（2017），新航的圣诞音乐首度发行是一张流行专辑，提供老式的假日音乐“ 21世纪流行光泽”。国家公共广播电台称Sia为“ 21世纪最富弹性的词曲作者”。
西亚在第18季的演出南方公园里献声了。在标题为“ The Cissy ”的第3集中，她在标题为“ Push（Feeding Good in Wednesday，星期三）”的情节歌曲中模仿了洛德。 2016年，Sia 为Netflix原创剧集Beat Bugs收录了披头士乐队的 “ 黑鸟 ” 。她在2017年动画电影《我的小马驹：电影》中饰演“流行歌星”角色Songbird Serenade。她还为这部电影创作了原创歌曲“ 彩虹 ”
西亚（Sia）为史考特沃克（Scott Walker）谱写的歌曲为2018年音乐电影Vox Lux配乐。她写了基于单页的故事，她写于2007年剧本音乐剧电影，名为音乐，明星麦迪齐格勒，凯特·哈德森和莱斯利奥多姆小。它由Sia导演，并以由她撰写和表演的配乐为特色。该电影暂定于2020年9月在影院和IMAX发行。
在1997年解散Crisp之后，Sia决定搬到伦敦跟她的男友Dan Pontifex建立关系。几周后，在泰国中途停留时，她收到一条消息，称庞蒂菲克斯在伦敦发生车祸后死亡。她回到了澳大利亚，但不久就收到了蓬蒂菲克斯的一位前室友的电话，他们邀请她留在伦敦。她在2001年发行的专辑《治疗困难》抒情地处理庞蒂菲克斯的去世：“丹死后我真是个性交。我什么都感觉不到。我可以使很多东西知识化；我有一个目标，被爱着，但我实际上并没有感到什么。” 西亚（Sia）在2007年《星期日泰晤士报》（Times）的一次采访中回忆了他去世的后果：“我们都被毁了，所以我们在毒品和特种啤酒方面都面无表情。不幸的是，这个弯刀对我来说持续了六年。”
Sia患有抑郁症，对止痛药和酒精的依赖，并且曾考虑过自杀，甚至会写自杀遗书。 2010年，由于健康状况不佳，Sia取消了各种促销活动和表演。她列举了极端的嗜睡和惊恐发作，并考虑永久退出表演和巡回演出。她说，她被诊断出患有格雷夫斯病 -一种以甲状腺过度活跃为特征的自身免疫性疾病。当年晚些时候，Sia在一次ARIA大奖采访中表示，休息和甲状腺激素替代疗法后，她的健康状况得到了改善。在2019年，Sia透露她患有埃勒斯－丹罗斯综合症。
Sia 于2014年8月在她位于加利福尼亚州棕榈泉的家中与纪录片制片人Erik Anders Lang结婚。这对夫妇于2016年12月宣布分居。在2014年霍华德·斯特恩（Howard Stern）演出中，Sia被问及是否她出于宗教原因，她回应道：“我相信更高的力量，这就是所谓的“无论花花公子”，他是一个酷儿，在冲浪圣诞老人的路上有点像我的爷爷，所以是。在同一个访谈中，她说她是女权主义者，而无论杜德（Dude）是神为她为蕾哈娜（Rihanna）的歌曲创作的歌词的灵感来源，“。 Sia的一只纹身在她的手上写着“ What dude”。 Sia是澳大利亚基督教摇滚乐手Peter Furler的表弟。

Sia Kate Isobelle Furler (/ˈsiːə/ SEE-ə; born 18 December 1975) is an Australian singer, songwriter, voice actress and director. She started her career as a singer in the acid jazz band Crisp in the mid-1990s in Adelaide. In 1997, when Crisp disbanded, she released her debut studio album titled OnlySee in Australia. She moved to London, England, and provided vocals for the British duo Zero 7. In 2000, Sia released her second studio album, Healing Is Difficult, and her third studio album, Colour the Small One, in 2004, but all of these struggled to connect with a mainstream audience.
Sia relocated to New York City in 2005 and toured in the United States. Her fourth and fifth studio albums, Some People Have Real Problems and We Are Born, were released in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Each was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association and attracted wider notice than her earlier albums. Uncomfortable with her growing fame, Sia took a hiatus from performing, during which she focused on songwriting for other artists, producing successful collaborations “Titanium” (with David Guetta), “Diamonds” (with Rihanna) and “Wild Ones” (with Flo Rida).
In 2014, Sia broke through as a solo recording artist when her sixth studio album, 1000 Forms of Fear, debuted at No 1 in the U.S. Billboard 200 and generated the top-ten single “Chandelier” and a trilogy of music videos co-directed by Sia and starring child dancer Maddie Ziegler. Since then, Sia has usually worn a wig that obscures her face to protect her privacy. Her seventh studio album This Is Acting (2016), spawned her first Billboard Hot 100 number one single, “Cheap Thrills”. The same year, Sia gave her Nostalgic for the Present Tour, which incorporated dancing by Ziegler and others and other performance art elements. Her eighth studio album, Everyday Is Christmas, was released in 2017 and reissued in 2018 with three bonus tracks. In 2018, she collaborated with Labrinth and Diplo in the group LSD, and they released their self-titled debut album in April 2019.
Sia wrote and directed an upcoming feature film, titled Music. Among the accolades received by Sia are nearly a dozen ARIA Awards, 9 Grammy Award nominations and an MTV Video Music Award.
Artistry, musical style and accolades
At the start of her career, with the bands Crisp and Jamiroquai, Sia performed “acid jazz” in Australia and later in London. With her first solo single, “Taken for Granted”, she experimented with trip hop. When she joined Zero 7, she sang downtempo numbers.
With Colour the Small One (2004) and Some People Have Real Problems (2007) she moved into jazz and folktronica, although the album’s biggest hit, “Breathe Me”, is described as alternative rock and a power ballad. Some People Have Real Problems expanded her connection with indie pop. Sia stated, “Colour the Small One … couldn’t be more derivative of Kings of Convenience and James Taylor and the things that Zero 7 were playing on the [tour] bus. I’m very easily influenced.”
In 2009, after leaving Zero 7, Sia dedicated herself entirely to her solo career. We Are Born (2010), incorporated various pop styles, including synthpop and R&B, with introspective themes accompanied by more insistent and livelier rhythms. 1000 Forms of Fear (2014) consolidated her connection with pop (with traces of electropop, reggae and hip-hop) This Is Acting is mostly composed of songs written by Sia with other female pop artists in mind, but the artists did not include the songs on their albums. Sia described songwriting for others as “play-acting.” The Guardian’s Kitty Empire commented that the latter album “provides an obvious counterpoint to Sia’s more personal album of 2014, 1000 Forms of Fear, whose stonking single, “Chandelier”, tackled her intoxicated past. This Is Acting makes plain the fact of manufacture – a process akin to bespoke tailoring.”
This Is Acting (2016) alternates more reggae and electropop with more introspective themes. In her 2016 live performances, Sia’s music is part of performance-art-like shows that involve dance and theatrical effects. For an MTV News writer “Sia’s throaty, slurred vocals are her norm”, while a The Fader contributor noted “In the Billboard Hot 100 landscape, Sia’s songwriting voice, which deals with depression and addiction, is singular—her actual voice even more so.” Everyday Is Christmas (2017), Sia’s first release of Christmas music is a pop album that gives old-fashioned holiday music “some 21st century pop gloss”. National Public Radio called Sia “the 21st century’s most resilient songwriter”.
Sia has received an array of accolades, including ARIA Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and nine nominations for Grammy Awards.
Sia lent her voice to the show South Park in its eighteenth season. In episode 3 entitled “The Cissy”, she portrayed Lorde in a parody song in the episode entitled “Push (Feeling Good on a Wednesday)”. In 2016 Sia covered “Blackbird” by The Beatles for the Netflix original series Beat Bugs. She appeared in the 2017 animated film My Little Pony: The Movie as the voice of “pop star” character Songbird Serenade. She also contributed an original song, “Rainbow”, to the film’s soundtrack.
Sia wrote the songs for the soundtrack to the 2018 musical film Vox Lux, with a score by Scott Walker. She wrote a screenplay based on a one-page story that she had written in 2007. The musical film, titled Music, stars Maddie Ziegler, Kate Hudson and Leslie Odom Jr.. It is directed by Sia and features a soundtrack written and performed by her. The film is tentatively set for a September 2020 release in theaters and IMAX.
Following the disbandment of Crisp in 1997, Sia decided to move to London to follow her relationship with boyfriend Dan Pontifex. Several weeks later, while on a stopover in Thailand, she received the news that Pontifex had died after being in a car accident in London. She returned to Australia, but soon she received a call from one of Pontifex’s former housemates, who invited her to stay in London. Her 2001 album Healing Is Difficult lyrically deals with Pontifex’s death: “I was pretty fucked up after Dan died. I couldn’t really feel anything. I could intellectualise a lot of stuff; that I had a purpose, that I was loved, but I couldn’t actually feel anything.” Sia recalled the effect of his death in a 2007 interview for The Sunday Times: “We were all devastated, so we got shit-faced on drugs and Special Brew. Unfortunately, that bender lasted six years for me.”
In 2008, Sia discussed her sexual orientation in interviews and revealed her relationship with JD Samson; they broke up in 2011. When asked about her sexuality in 2009, she said, “I’ve always dated boys and girls and anything in between. I don’t care what gender you are, it’s about people. … I’ve always been… well, flexible is the word I would use.”
Sia has suffered from depression, addictions to painkillers and alcohol, and had contemplated suicide, going as far as to write a suicide note. In 2010, Sia cancelled various promotional events and shows due to her poor health. She cited extreme lethargy and panic attacks and considered retiring permanently from performing and touring. She stated that she had been diagnosed with Graves’ disease – an autoimmune disorder characterized by an over-active thyroid. Later that year, in an ARIA Awards interview, Sia said her health was improving after rest and thyroid hormone replacement therapy. In 2019, Sia revealed that she suffers from Ehlers–Danlos syndrome.
Sia married documentary filmmaker Erik Anders Lang at her home in Palm Springs, California, in August 2014. The couple revealed their separation in December 2016. During a 2014 appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Sia was asked if she was religious, to which she responded, “I believe in a Higher Power and it’s called ‘Whatever Dude’ and he’s a queer, surfing Santa that’s a bit like my grandpa, so yes.” In the same interview, she stated that she is a feminist and that Whatever Dude divinely inspired the lyrics she wrote for Rihanna’s song “Diamonds”. One of Sia’s tattoos, on her hand, reads “Whatever Dude”. Sia is a cousin of Australian Christian rock musician Peter Furler.
Sia stated that in 2019 she adopted two boys who were ageing out of the foster care system. In July 2020, Sia announced that she had become a grandmother when one of her two 19 year old sons had welcomed twins.
Sia, who is vegan, participated in an advertisement for PETA Asia-Pacific, with her dog, Pantera, to encourage pet neutering. Sia has also joined other publicly known figures for the “Oscar’s Law” campaign, in protest against large-scale pet breeding. Other advocates include singers Jon Stevens, Paul Dempsey, Rachael Leahcar and Missy Higgins. She is also a supporter of the Beagle Freedom Project, performing “I’m in Here” live at the Beagle Freedom Project Gala on 9 September 2013. For her 2016 Nostalgic for the Present Tour, Sia partnered with various rescue organizations to conduct a dog adoption fair at each of her concerts. Sia was nominated for a 2016 Libby Award for “Best Voice for Animals”. The video for her 2016 single “The Greatest” was a pro-LGBT tribute to the 49 people killed in the Pulse Orlando Shooting.
