To me, this artist is so unique but so untapped in my social circles. SIA is not only one of my more recent musical addictions but she’s been a lyrical inspiration for all things upside down and inside out in my life. She speaks from the soul in a honest and sometimes uncanny way. Her voice is raw and slurry. Sometimes I can’t understand what she’s saying but that’s the mystery that I like so much. She’s known for her song “BREATHE ME” from the TV series Six Feet Under. Its eerie and inviting from some cold dark place. Here’s a live version.
This got me interested in her. Once I heard that, I had to check out more. Here’s a song that anyone without her cd “We Are Born” probably hasn’t heard. And if you own it, you probably listen to it repeatedly. Its a great song about knowing what you want and what you deserve in a relationship..This is an awesome acoustic version! It’s called “BE GOOD TO ME“.
Lastly….. I love social media outlets….because, a reader of my blog let me know that I was missing out on a really good cover by none other than Ellie Goulding. Check out her awesome cover of “ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD” by Rhianna. It’s folky and her choices in the arrangement I just love. She totally made this song a tad bit more intimate for me. The strings in the background are awesome, adding suspense to her voice.
