Boasting a powerful, soulful voice, she worked the Adelaide jazz circuit during the '90s as a vocalist for the band Crisp. Her big break came only after she followed in the footsteps of many other Aussie artists and hopped on a plane to the U.K. Sia landed a gig as a backup singer for Jamiroquai, which then led to appearances on tracks by Massive Attack, Zero 7 and William Orbit. Her full-length debut, 'Healing Is Difficult' boasted a splash on the UK chart with 'Drink to Get Drunk.' But her 2004 effort, 'Colour The Small One' has Sia out front and center on tracks like 'Sunday' and 'Breathe Me,' which was given massive exposure when it was used in the elaborate final scene of the HBO series 'Six Feet Under.' Sia is touring behind her latest, 'some people have REAL problems.'
