She’s underrated because she doesn’t want the world to know her face, but she wants to the world to know her voice and her unreal talent.

I’m talking about no other than the unique Sia Furler.

I was a fan before I traveled this past February, singing along to her features with David Guetta (“Titanium” and “She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)”) and Flo Rida (“Wild Ones”). However, I spent a seven and a half hour flight from London Heathrow to New York JFK listening to her voice on her album 1000 Forms of Fear deeply focused like I never done before. It was one of the only things that could calm me down from a rocky, turbulence driven journey. I couldn’t help but to deeply admire her tone, her style, the music, the meaning; it was all too much to handle in one sitting. I wanted to know – why isn’t she bigger than most of the stars out today in the music scene?

Once I got home, I kept listening to her stuff day in and day out, and I wondered why she hadn’t been such a giant thing in the music industry. Furler’s career in music has spanned almost twenty years and yet she is still unknown to the world. I then put two and two together, with the recent times and today’s society.

When Furler goes out, her face is now covered. She doesn’t like to show her face, but she likes to show the world what she is capable of and her stamp on the industry. We often associate amazing music with faces, and it would be hard for regular people to identify the face with the voice.

In recent interviews, Furler states she doesn’t want to be famous. In years past, she did show her face, but now it’s much different. Some people say that she doesn’t show her face due to Graves Disease, but she always stated that it was because she didn’t want people to actually see her.

This upcoming fall, Sia is going on tour with R&B giant Miguel, and she is playing cities in the U.S, and many wonder how she’ll hide herself. As she wears a wig that is truly larger than life, or as she is identified by her iconic platinum blonde bobbed haircut, she’ll make a huge impact on what touring is now. With a voice like hers, she’ll make some sort of history. Performing songs from recent albums 1000 Forms of Fear and This is Acting, and covers of songs American radio has learned to love, the Australian megastar is set to rock every stage she comes across in the next few months.

If someone who had never heard of Sia sat and listened to her, they would be shocked at why she isn’t the face of music today (the irony of this statement is cunning). The more you listen to her voice, it tells an unique story that’s never been told before. I’m here to share that this is a story that you want to hear. It’s a story that has darkness intertwined with the happiness of life, the sadness a bad day brings, and the confusion of the mind. Listen to Sia, and you won’t regret it.
