Sia (born Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, 18.12.1975) is an Australian-born singer, known for her solo work as well as her contributions to Zero 7.
Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2014, Sia has a net worth of 20 million USD.
Childhood: Sia was born in Adelaide, Australia to Phil Colson and Loene Furler and was part of the acid jazz group Crisp. The band released two albums, entitled Word and the Deal and Delirium. Following her work with the band, Sia released her debut solo album, entitled OnlySee. However, it was not until she moved to the UK that she gained any notable recognition for her talents.
Career: Sia signed to the DancePool record label, a subsidiary of Sony, in 2000. Her major label debut album was named Healing Is Difficult. A number of underground club hits came from the album, such as 'Drink To Get Drunk' and 'Little Man'. 'Little Man' was remixed by the UK garage artist Wookie and was a popular club hit. She also sampled Prokofiev's 'Dance of the Knights' for the song 'Taken For Granted'. Following a dispute with her label, Sia left them and signed a new deal with Go! Beat Records, a subsidiary label of UMG. In 2003, Sia released an EP named 'Don't Bring Me Down', the closing track of which was used on the soundtrack for the French film 36 Quai des Orfèvres. Colour the Small One, her third full-length album, was released the next year and led to her being compared to artists such as Dido and Sarah McLachlan. One track on the album, named 'The Bully', was a collaboration with the US musician Beck Hansen (who is better known simply as Beck). Sia once again changed labels after the release of Colour the Small One. However, the single 'Breathe Me' had received a lot of international airplay and was featured in an episode of the HBO TV show Six Feet Under, as well as being used at Victoria's Secret's Fashion Show in 2006. As a result, Astralwerks picked the album up and released it in the US. The re-released album featured remixes by the established electronic artists Ulrich Schnauss and Four Tet. The following year, Sia's fourth album was released. Entitled Lady Croissant, the album was a mixture of live tracks and one studio recording. This was followed by the 'Day Too Soon' EP which featured the tracks 'The Girl You Lost To Cocaine' and 'Buttons'. The next solo album from Sia as a solo album was entitled Some People Have Real Problems. Sia performed live on 'Late Night With Conan O'Brien' and on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' in January 2008. Sia collaborated with Christina Aguilera and Samuel Dixon on the song 'Bound to You' for the film 'Burlesque'. The song was nominated for the 2010 'Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song'. Sia released her fifth studio album, 'We Are Born', on 18th June 2010. The album received absolutely glowing reviews from fans and critics alike. In June 2010, Sia cancelled a large portion of her touring after being diagnosed with Graves' disease. After receiving treatment and having some time off, Sia returned to resume the tour in January 2011. On 30th March 2012, Sia released 'Best Of.' in Australia. The following year, Sia recorded 'Kill and Run' for 'The Great Gatsby' soundtrack. On 4th July 2014, Sia released her sixth studio album, '1000 Forms of Fear', to great critical praise. Sia had collaborated with The Weeknd and Diplo for the 1st October 2013 release of the song 'Elastic Heart', which featured on the soundtrack of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. On 7th January 2015, a music video for the song was released featuring Shia LaBeouf.
Personal Life: Sia discussed her bisexual orientations in 2008. In June 2010, Sia expressed an interest in marrying JD Samson, her girlfriend at the time, however the couple broke up soon after. On 6th June 2014, Sia announced that she was engaged to Erik Anders Lang, a documentary filmmaker, and the couple were married at her Palm Springs home on 2nd August 2014.
Sia unveils her new 'Wonder Woman' soundtrack song.
Sia Furler has unveiled a brand new tune with Labrinth entitled 'To Be Human' for the forthcoming 'Wonder Woman' soundtrack. It's the final cut on the full movie album (coming next week) and comes alongside a score by award-winning film composer Rupert Gregson-Williams.

'To Be Human' is a soaring, almost ambient, theme made all the more stunning by Sia's husky, flawless vocals. It's predictably super catchy - definitely one of those 'play on repeat until you know all the words' songs - and Labrinth's contrasting input gives a sensational layered effect that's going to make this a Best Original Song Oscar contender.

The latest album from Sia - This is Acting is a follow up to her successful 2014 album 1000 Forms of Fear and her 7th studio release. This is Acting is a self-written album by the Australian singer and consists of twelve tracks, some of which the singer wrote for the likes of Rhianna but were turned down, knowing this it might leave some listener feeling that This Is Acting is a second hand record with the tracks being released for the sake of it, however there are still some great moments.
Opening track Bird Set Free showcases Sia's empowering vocal, the soft, angelic keys in the intro entice us in before imploding into a dramatic chorus elevate Bird Set Free. Toning down the album is Alive, which is a mediocre track and unfortunately doesn't live up to the song title. Only Sia's confident vocals help savour the song but there's not enough vibrancy or creativity pouring out of the track for it to be considered memorable.
Move Your Body and Cheap Thrills aid the energetic production of This is Acting with the fast, catchy beat being fitting for a nightclub. Move Your Body lives up to the track title with influence of latino music.

From the confirmed to the rumoured and the long-awaited, here's half a dozen of the records we're looking forward to hearing in 2016.
RiRi’s been holding back her eighth album Anti, despite revealing the high concept artwork with a full-on unveiling ceremony at a small gallery in Los Angeles a few months back and having already released a host of hit singles from it. Possibly waiting for the tremors from Adele’s 25 to wear off before dropping it, the Barbadian singer’s new effort has no official release date as yet but will definitely be arriving in 2016.
Rihanna's 'Anti' is certain to drop in 2016

The album is rather a companion album to Bleachers' debut album 'Strange Desire', featuring all the best tunes re-worked by stellar artists such as Sia ('Like a River Runs'), Charli XCX ('Rollercoaster') and Carly Rae Jepsen ('Shadow') among others. It's a reward for all the devotion fans have shown to Jack Antonoff and his latest pop project, as well as all his previous work with the likes of Fun. and, of course, Steel Train. 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2', in fact, follows Steel Train's 2010 remix collection ('Terrible Thrills, Vol. 1') which had appearances the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Tegan and Sara, and Amanda Palmer, not to mention Jack's older sister Rachel Antonoff.

This year's Brit Award nominations features a few surprises...
The 2015 Brit Award nominations have finally been announced with, it seems, a few surprises alongside the obvious candidates. There's no prizes for guessing who's come out on top for this year's list of award-winning possibles.
Sam Smith leads nominations
Awards season rears its ominous head for another year, with some major ceremonies - in both film and music - having already taken place. We've seen prizes sent out for 2014's films; I.e. Golden Globes, the Critics' Choice Awards, People's Choice Awards, AFI Honours; and now it's time for music, with the BBC Sound of 2015 having already taken place and now The Brits and the Grammys have unveiled their candidates.
Sia's new music video for 'Elastic Heart' has been raising a few eyebrows.
Sia returns with another spectacularly choreographed video, once again starring pre-teen dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler who is this time joined by a topless Shia LaBeouf in a caged face-off for the epic single 'Elastic Heart'.
Shia LaBeouf goes primal in Sia's 'Elastic Heart' video
Having previously appeared in the erratic video for Sia's multi-platinum single 'Chandelier', 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler makes a return complete with the same wig and nude-coloured leotard for another bout of expressive movement in 'Elastic Heart'; the song from the soundtrack of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. While her talent remains breathtaking in her latest venture, viewers were still quick to criticise the controversial content.
