At 40 years old, Sia Furler has decided to absent herself from the depths of underground music, only to resurface as the very definition of mainstream. While her previous album 1000 Forms of Fear was far from shabby, scoring a No 5 in the UK albums chart, her songs have always fared better when sung by someone other than herself. “Diamonds”, sung by Rihanna, and “Déjà Vu”, with Giorgio Moroder, are two of her biggest hits to date. This is Acting got its name, apparently, because many of the songs were originally written by Sia for other singers. “Alive” was co-written with, but then rejected by, Adele.

Electronic - Released January 1, 2008 | Hear Music

Some People Have Real Problems is Sia's first release on the Starbucks-affiliated Hear Music label, following acts like Paul McCartney and Joni Mitchell. Given the burst of attention Sia got when her song "Breathe Me" was used to excellent effect in the final scenes of the series finale of the HBO show Six Feet Under, which brought the Australian singer/songwriter to a much wider audience than was familiar with her earlier work with Zero 7 and Massive Attack, it makes perfect sense. With her old-school soul vocal style, with just a hint of roughness under her delicate high-register tones, set against the contemporary sophistication of her music, Sia is exactly the sort of artist a middle-aged Starbucks devotee who wants to remain at least tangentially hip would flock to: if Amy Winehouse did yoga instead of Jack Daniels, she'd sound a lot like Sia. But fans of Sia's earlier releases may well be in for a shock: Some People Have Real Problems sounds like a concerted grab for the Mum Rock demographic, those looking for something to listen to while they're waiting for Corinne Bailey Rae and Regina Spektor to release new albums. Considerably more pop-oriented and uptempo than the chilly electronica that made her name, songs like "Buttons" and "Academia" (one of two songs featuring Beck on harmony vocals; the other, "Death by Chocolate," also features Jason Lee and Giovanni Ribisi) also seem designed to attract the audience that fell for Feist's "1234." It would be easy to condemn Sia for such a naked brass ring grab except for one somewhat surprising point: the change actually suits her. The newly varied arrangements, moods, and textures of this album, from the mournful piano-led cover of the Kinks' "I Go to Sleep" through the horn-based R&B swing of "Electric Bird" to the sarcastic bounce of "The Girl You Lost to Cocaine," make Some People Have Real Problems Sia's most engrossing and satisfying album yet. © Stewart Mason /TiVo

Rock - Released January 1, 2007 | Astralwerks

Called a "mini-album" by her label, Astralwerks, Sia's Lady Croissant is a collection of eight live tracks (from her April 2006 performance in New York's Bowery Ballroom) and one new studio track, the darkly bubbly single, "Pictures." The recordings sound good, the band (bass, cello, drums, guitar, and keys) tight and lush, and Sia herself is spot-on, her vocals rich and passionate. The set here is short (and the actual concert wasn't much longer), but the singer pulls material from both Healing Is Difficult and Colour the Small One (including "Breathe Me," featured in the popular television show Six Feet Under's series finale) as well as two tracks, "Destiny" and "Distractions," from Zero 7's Simple Things (Garden wouldn't come out until June, so unfortunately her contributions to that album aren't included here). There's a song of hers called "Lentil," the only one she introduces by name here, and a Cher/Pretenders -- with inspirational credit given to the latter -- cover (written by Ray Davies), "I Go to Sleep." Sia, her voice, her style, hearken back to the late '90s, drawing comparisons to early Nelly Furtado and Morley, but the music here, her music, doesn't seem dated or unhip. It's very modern, warm and melodic and cleanly intricate, and shows off Sia's talents well, making Lady Croissant an important listen for her fans, and enough to sway those less familiar with her work into checking out what else she has to offer. © Marisa Brown /TiVo

Pop - Released January 1, 2004 | UMC (Universal Music Catalogue)

Previously famous for her 2000 Prokofiev-sampling hit "Taken for Granted" and regular collaborations with Zero 7, Australian jazz-soul singer Sia received international exposure with her third solo album, Colour the Small One. Its lead single, "Breathe Me," was used on the series five finale of Six Feet Under, while its collaboration with Beck, "The Bully," introduced her to a slightly more alternative audience. Eschewing the R&B leanings of previous album Healing Is Difficult, Sia's hushed, intimate vocals are surrounded by acoustic folk-tinged electronica on its 11 tracks, which include the singles "Don't Bring Me Down" and "Where I Belong." © Jon O'Brien /TiVo
