Sia
I did a search and physically looked but it's possible I may have missed it if she has a thread already...
(the whole 3 letter word thing is apparently too much for tfs's search function to handle )

anyway....

here is a bio from starpulse.com:
Quote:
Sia (full name Sia Furler) hails from the famously laid-back Australian city of Adelaide. Boasting a powerful, soulful voice, she worked the Adelaide jazz circuit during the '90s as a vocalist for the band Crisp. However, the blonde, blue-eyed antipodean's big break came only after she followed in the footsteps of many other Aussie artists and hopped on a plane to the U.K. While in London, Sia landed a gig as a backup singer for the very popular and extremely hip English outfit Jamiroquai. In early 2000, she released her first solo single, the alternative pop tune "Taken for Granted," which debuted at number ten on the busy U.K. singles chart.

Soon after, a string of big names in the British music scene asked for Sia's services; projects with Massive Attack, Zero 7, and William Orbit ensued. In mid-2001, Sia once again made a splash on the U.K. singles chart with the moody offering "Drink to Get Drunk," a track that would appear on her 2002 full-length debut, Healing Is Difficult. Ironically, it was only after her considerable success abroad that she began to make a real impact down under. Colour the Small One appeared a year later. The track "Breathe Me" from the album gained attention when it was used in the elaborate final scene of the Six Feet Under series that aired in 2005. After a successful 2006 tour, as well as more appearances on Zero 7's album Garden, Sia issued the live album Lady Croissant, which also included the new studio song "Pictures." In 2008 she released Some People Have Real Problems, her fourth studio album. David Peter Wesolowski, All Music Guide

Her current album, Some People Have Real Problems, has a lot of great stuff on it...

I don't have the whole album (just a bunch of songs I bought off itunes) but I feel like I will eventually have the whole thing...

She recently came out with the video for the single "Soon We'll Be Found"...
and again, it's really cool and different..

she's not afraid to have fun and be quirky with her videos..

from siamusic.com:
Quote:
this is the incredibly gorgeous video for sia's single, soon we'll be found.. it portrays the beauty of communication through sign language. The track is the third single from her album some people have REAL problems. “i’ve always been obsessed with the beauty of sign language. the movement and expression just appears, to ignorant-hearing-me as a dance… a beautiful, emotive dance. but the real beauty is that, hidden in these perfect shapes, is communication.” sia.

a few weeks ago i bought the rest of "Some People Have Real Problems" on itunes and i have been LOVING it

i highly recommend it for any of you Sia fans

Academia is an unexpectedly great song i think...

Some of the lyrics:

You’re a difficult equation with a knack for heart evasion
Will you listen to my proof or will you add another page on
It appears to me the graph has come and stolen all the laughs
It appears to me the pen has over analyzed again
And if I am a number I’m infinity plus one
And if you are five words you are afraid to be the one
And if you are a number you’re infinity plus one
And if I am four words then I am needing of your love


they make more sense with the rhythm and heard in the entirety of the song

i go to sleep is also great
the music and mood and lyrics all combine in this little perfect storm i think...
at least in terms of the way it makes me feel..

the studio version is a bit more polished than this one.. but this is also good..

Sia needs to write Beyonce's next album. It would be EPIC.
