    FORTIES
  • 2016
    Age 40
    In her 2016 live performances, Sia's music is part of performance-art-like shows that involve dance and theatrical effects.
    More Details Hide Details 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 moreso." Sia has received an array of accolades, including ARIA Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and five nominations for Grammy Awards. Sia revealed in the autumn of 2015 that she had written and directed a screenplay based on a one-page story that she wrote in 2007, titled Sister. Maddie Ziegler is set to star in the project. Sia and her husband Erik Anders Lang have also co-directed a documentary about her life, reportedly called Untitled Sia Documentary Project. 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)". The resemblance was so convincing that many viewers thought Lorde had provided the voice in the song. Sia is set to appear in the 2017 animated film My Little Pony: The Movie as the voice of "pop star" character Songbird Serenade. She will also contribute two original songs for the film's soundtrack.
    Sia began her Nostalgic for the Present Tour in September 2016, featuring Ziegler.
    More Details Hide Details Sia's music incorporates hip hop, funk and soul music as a base for her vocal styling. About her early influences, she stated "When I was on tour with Zero 7, they would listen to music. We would be on the tour bus and the Kings of Convenience would be playing, and then I made Colour the Small One which couldn't be more derivative of Kings of Convenience and James Taylor and the things that Zero 7 were playing on the bus. I'm very easily influenced." 1000 Forms of Fear is primarily a pop album, with influences of hip hop, reggae and electropop. 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."
    In September 2016, she released a single, "The Greatest", with vocals from American hip hop recording artist Kendrick Lamar.
    More Details Hide Details A video was released the same day featuring Ziegler – the dancer's fifth video collaboration with Sia. The two performed the song with several other dancers, and also performed "Chandelier", live the next day at the Apple annual fall event, drawing media attention.
    In June 2016, Sia gave a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, featuring Ziegler.
    More Details Hide Details From May to August, Sia performed in nearly a dozen festival and other concerts in America and European and Middle Eastern countries, including Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Romania, Poland, the United Kingdom, Russia, Lebanon and Israel.
    The same month, she contributed vocals to a cover of Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable" which was featured on the soundtrack of 2016 Pixar film Finding Dory.

    In May 2016, Sia made a surprise appearance on the finale for Survivor: Kaôh Rōng where she donated $50,000 to contestant Tai Trang.
    More Details Hide Details She donated another $50,000 to an animal charity of his choice, noting that the two share a mutual love of animals.
    Her performance received an effusively positive critical reception as "one of the greatest moments in Coachella’s 17-year history", and it was consistently noted as one of the best performances of the 2016 festival.
    More Details Hide Details The performance was her first full concert since 2011.
    In April 2016, Sia gave a widely acclaimed performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival that went viral online.
    More Details Hide Details
    In January 2016, eight days prior to the release of This Is Acting, she released "Unstoppable" as the final pre-release promotion single for the album.
    More Details Hide Details Eventually, the single "Cheap Thrills", featuring Sean Paul, reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Sia released two videos for the song, one of which features Ziegler and two male dancers.
    In 2016, she released her seventh studio album This Is Acting, which spawned her first Hot 100 No. 1 single, "Cheap Thrills".
    More Details Hide Details The same year, Sia embarked on the Nostalgic for the Present Tour, which incorporates performance art elements. Sia has received an array of accolades, including ARIA Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

    At the 72nd Venice International Film Festival in September 2015, Sia announced that her new single "Alive" from This Is Acting was co-written by Adele and had originally been intended for Adele's third album.

She also released two more song from the album, "Bird Set Free" and "One Million Bullets". "Cheap Thrills" and "Reaper" were subsequently released as promotional singles for the album.
    In May 2015, Sia's cover of The Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'" was released on the soundtrack of the movie San Andreas.
    More Details Hide Details The same month, alongside the digital deluxe release of 1000 Forms of Fear, she released a mobile game, Bob Job.
    In an interview with NME in February 2015, Sia revealed that she had completed the follow-up to 1000 Forms of Fear, entitled This Is Acting.
    More Details Hide Details Furler said that 1000 Forms of Fear was released so she could be freed from her record deal and simply write for other artists, but the album's success has spurred her to continue writing her own music.

    More Details Hide Details The album debuted atop the US Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 52,000 copies.

The song peaked at number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Sia's first entry on that chart as a lead artist. Elsewhere, the song experienced similar commercial success, ranking in the top ten of the record charts in Australia and numerous European regions. As of January 2015, the single had sold 2 million copies in the United States.

In January 2015, Sia released a solo version of "Elastic Heart" as the fourth single from 1000 Forms of Fear; it eventually reached the top 20 on the Hot 100. At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards (2015), Sia received four nominations for "Chandelier": Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video.
    They were married at her home in Palm Springs, California, on 2 August 2014.
    More Details Hide Details 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, who is a 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.

  • 1997
    Age 21
    Following the disbandment of Crisp in 1997, Sia decided to move to London to follow her relationship with boyfriend Dan Pontifex.
    More Details Hide Details 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 on her of the 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."
    After Crisp disbanded in 1997, Sia moved to London where she performed as a background vocalist for British band Jamiroquai.
    More Details Hide Details She also provided lead vocals for English downtempo group Zero 7 on their first three studio albums and toured with the group. On Zero 7's 2001 album Simple Things, Sia contributed vocals to two tracks: "Destiny" and "Distractions." The single "Destiny" peaked at number 30 on the UK Singles Chart. In 2004, she provided vocals for Zero 7 on "Somersault" and "Speed Dial No. 2" (from the album When It Falls). In 2006, Sia again collaborated with Zero 7 for the group's third album, The Garden and hence she is regarded as the "unofficial" lead singer of Zero 7.
    In 1997 Crisp disbanded, and Sia released her debut studio album entitled OnlySee on Flavoured Records in Australia.
    More Details Hide Details The album sold 1,200 copies.
    In 1997, when Crisp disbanded, she released her debut studio album titled OnlySee in Australia.
    More Details Hide Details She then moved to London, England, and provided lead vocals for the British duo Zero 7. In 2000, Sia signed to Sony Music's sub-label Dance Pool and released her second studio album, Healing Is Difficult, the following year. Displeased with the promotion of the record, she signed to Go! Beat and released her third studio album, Colour the Small One, in 2004. The project struggled to connect with a mainstream audience, and so Sia relocated to New York City in 2005 and began touring across the United States. She released her fourth and fifth studio releases, Some People Have Real Problems and We Are Born, in 2008 and 2010, respectively. She then took a hiatus from performing, during which she focused on songwriting for other artists. Her catalogue includes the successful collaborations "Titanium" (with David Guetta), "Diamonds" (with Rihanna) and "Wild Ones" (with Flo Rida).
