Sia Furler Net Worth $20 million

Growing up, Sia imitated the style of popular singers such as Sting, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder. She attended Adelaide High School, and during the 1990s, her career as a singer would begin. She joined the acid jazz band Crisp,helping them create two Eps – “Word and the Deal” and “Delirium”. In 1997, Crisp disbanded and Sia would work on her debut solo album entitled “OnlySee”.

Sia moved to London and performed as a background vocalist for Jamiroquai. She also became the lead vocalist of Zero 7 on their first three studio albums. She is regarded as the band’s unofficial singer, and they created the song “Destiny” which reached the UK Singles Chart. In 2000, she signed a recording contract with the label Dance Pool, and released the single “Taken for Granted” which would reach 10th spot on the UK Singles Chart. The following year, she created the album “Healing is Difficult”, but poor promotion of the album led her to leave Dance Pool and join Universal Music Group’s Go! Beat. She won an APRA Award for Breakthrough Songwriter in 2002. Two years later, she released the album “Colour the Small One” which had a few successful singles but failed to make any mainstream success. This led Sia to move to New York City and created the song “Breathe Me” which was featured in the series “Six Feet Under”.

In 2007, Sia released the live album entitled “Lady Croissant” and would leave Zero 7 on friendly terms. She then worked on her fourth album called “Some People Have Real Problems”, which would certify gold in Australia, and become her first album to chart in the United States. Two years later, she released “TV Is My Parent” and won an ARIA Music Award for Best Music DVD. She then collaborated with Christina Aguilera, and co-wrote several songs for her album “Bionic”. In 2010, Sia wrote the song “Bound to You” for the film “Burlesque” which earned her a Golden Globe Award.

Next came “We Are Born”, which certified gold in Australia once again. The song “Clap Your Hands” would become the album’s best-selling single, and she would also promote her album through a tour.

Sia then tried to retire from being an artist after “We Are Born”, stating that she was growing uncomfortable with the fame. She continued writing songs however, and “Titanium” would reach David Guetta who included her original vocals of the song, and which would become hugely successful in various parts of the world. She continued writing songs for other popular artists such as Rihanna and Flo Rida, then in 2013 she released the song “Elastic Heart” for the film “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. She also went on to release another album called “1000 Forms of Fear” which debuted in the top spot of the US Billboard Hot 100, and for which she received four Grammy Award nominations in 2015. At this point she started wearing a large oversized wig, not showing her face in order to maintain some sort of privacy. However, in 2015, she then released the follow up “This is Acting” and has since toured and performed in various locations, somewhat negating her privacy.

For her personal life, it is known that Sia married filmmaker Erik Anders Lang in 2014, but they separated in 2016. She has stated in interviews that her sexual orientation is flexible.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'm really visually stimulated more than anything. I don't really listen to music. I'm more into watching telly or watching movies and visual art.
2I think it would be very difficult to maintain one kind of art or whatever for your whole life. I think it's unrealistic.
3I love watching reality TV, but being part of making it was just demoralising.
4I liked myself much more before I got famous. I was much friendlier and had more energy.
5When you're entertaining all day long and that's your work, you end up really very tired. You don't have a lot of energy left over for your loved ones.
6People call me for the ballads. Apparently that's where I've been pigeonholed. But it's really interesting and really fun. It's my favourite part of the job, writing.
7I have social anxiety. It's easier up on stage because there's security in being there. When I'm off stage I'm trying not to be a manic freak. I'm quite shy.
8I don't go to shows because I just want to listen to the music performed live. I want to get to know the person who's performing it. Or I want to, like, take away a sense that I had an experience that nobody else is going to have again, or a unique experience for that moment.
9A lot of people come up to me expecting to meet the person they have seen perform. It's not going to happen, unless my mania, my stage person, responds to them and not the real me.
10There are probably five songs in the world that I get excited about when I hear them on the radio.
11People aren't honest about the horrors of fame. The downsides are so overwhelming that, for me, there is no payoff.
12I'm a fan of the Strokes, so my big fantasy was that one day I would get to sing with them.
13I'll be the songwriter for pop stars and then they can be the front person and I don't have to be famous.
14I was weirdly obsessed with music until I was 11, and then I turned into a nerd.
15I don't read reviews or interviews or anything, just because I'm afraid; If I believed the good, then I'd believe the bad, and there will be bad.
16I don't need to be rich anymore; I don't need to be a millionaire.
17I don't know anything about the history of music.
18Fame made me develop a panic disorder.
19I'm sensitive and get easily upset and insulted.
20I don't really even go out that much now except to walk my dogs, because I don't want to be recognised.
21When I was 10, my parents really valued success in the arts, and I thought if I was a famous 'something artistic,' that they would love me more.
22I hope I am a psychotherapist's dream. I've spent enough hours in therapy.
23I'm sort of a gay man trapped in a woman's body when it comes to music sometimes - it's crowded in here!
24Like when I'm singing live I can't hear myself. I'm just listening to the rest of the band. To listen to my voice, it doesn't even feel like it's me.
25Knowing now what goes into making a successful artist, it's disheartening.
26I love visual gags and gimmicks; I love them.
27I'm just completely obsessed with Die Antwoord.
28I'm an advocate of 'it's not what you are, it's who you are.'
