If you’re a singer-songwriter then you may know a thing or two about what it means to take the spotlight. In most cases, you sit behind the music of molded talent and watch as your songs take flight. However, most songwriters are also great vocalists. They have the ability to envision a song and paint a picture through their voice.
Sia is one of those brilliant songwriters, with a powerful sound. As a professional who has written for big name artists such as Madonna, Rhianna, and Beyonce, Sia’s lyrics have impacted billions. And now, it’s her time to shine. Sia has created an undeniable hit, backed by the embodiment of dance. Her Official Video for “Chandelier” starred the talented young dancer, Mattie Ziegler and evoked tremendous emotion. Sia not only wrote and sang this amazing piece of art, but she also co-directed the video! With “Chandelier” climbing the charts, and this video reaching 40 million views, Sia has created a new face to pop music. It’s one with no face at all. Hits are written everyday by singers that are unknown to the mainstream world. Sia has been releasing albums since 1997, and her next album, 1000 Forms of Fear, will be her biggest one yet. As “Chandelier” leads the way for Sia, we will watch as her star is born, in the spotlight.
