Sia Furler, Australian singer and song-writer has become a major ingredient in a single’s recipe for success globally and in the United States, whether she’s in the background writing it or adding it to her personal successes. Certainly, the intricacies of her path to her success and net worth is what’s most fascinating.
First off, let us start by saying- Sia is the niece of one of the singers from Men At Work. That’s right, as niece of Colin Hay, Sia has familial ties to the Australian Gods that are responsible for “Down Under.” Sia happens to have abounding talent, but even if she didn’t, she was still predisposed to be Aussie greatness.
But fame and success is not what Sia is looking for, anyways. While she wants to develop her talents as a singer and songwriter, Sia routinely swears off being in the public light and finds artistic ways to avoid doing so. This includes using others to help her perform and star in her music videos, such as the controversial use of Maddie Ziegler and Shia LaBeouf to provocatively do an interpretative dance for her 2018 single “Elastic Heart.”
In fact, at one point in time after her 2010 album was released, Sia had decided she was going to retire from the spotlight in general and stick to strictly writing hits for other artists, such as Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” To her dismay, despite essentially disappearing from the lime light like she wanted, her original vocal demos were chosen for the songs she wrote for David Guetta and Flo Ria, “Titanium” and “Wild Ones,” respectively. Her powerful vocals and the commercial success of both songs led Sia’s name to inevitably be back in the pop scene’s conversation.
As a result, she gradually worked back into the pop scene as a singer while doing songs such as “Elastic Heart,” featuring big name artists like The Weekend and Diplo and featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Finally, in 2014 she released “1000 Forms of Fear” and single “Chandelier,” which led her to experience her greatest personal success to date. “1000 Forms of Fear” became Sia’s first album to debut No. 1 in the United States.
In 2014 she was declared the 97th richest Australian with a personal net worth of $20,000,000.
She has another album slated to come out in 2018, as well, so expect for some more domination of the radio by this Australian great.
