Biography


Sia Kate Isobelle Furler a.k.a. Sia Furler or simply Sia was born in Adelaide, South Australia on December 18, 1975. Her father, Phil B. Colson, was a musician in various bands including Foreday Riders, Rum Jungle, Fat Time, Jump Back Jack and Mount Lofty Rangers while her mother, Loene Furler, was a singer, songwriter, musician, and art lecturer who also provided backing vocals for Mount Lofty Rangers. She is the niece of singer-songwriter Colin Hay of Men at Work.

In early 1990s, Sia started performing in the Adelaide acid jazz scene and at the age of 17, she joined the jazz funk band, Crisp. The group released two albums, 1996's "Word and the Deal" and "Delerium" in 1997. In 1997, Sia left Crisp and later released her debut solo album "OnlySee". It was produced by former Crisp band mate Jesse Flavell, who also wrote most of the tracks. Unlike her later albums, "OnlySee" was marketed under her full name, Sia Furler, instead of simply Sia.
