Sia Will Sprinkle Fairy Dust On You

Sia Will Sprinkle Fairy Dust On You

For some reason, I missed the boat on Sia when it sailed by three years ago. Sia who has been at it in the music industry for decades, beginning in Australia, had her big US break through when her song "Breath Me" was used in the final scene in the finale of the hit series Six Feet Under.

I may have willfully forgot that final scene because it was so depressing... I mean I know the show was all about death but watching all the main characters die in six minutes was a little much. I guess it was better than walking off hand in hand with no resolve at all? Eh hum. And clearly the most lasting impression for many people was Sia's song.

So thankfully this summer at MichFest due to a series of coincidence and accidents, Sia was scheduled to play the Fest at the last minute. The evening she played it rained. Diana, the Prof, and I almost didn't leave our camp site dreading being stuck freezing, drenched and sitting in mud. But we relented, sat huddled under plastic ponchos and when Sia came on stage we were absolutely spell bound. I'm not sure how to really describe her, other than being dazzled by fairy dust.

Needless to say, her songs have been downloaded and now populate my ipod. If you've heard her you know what I'm talking about, if you haven't then listen on her myspace page, and you will.
