Biography

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.
