Sia Furler– the multidimensional Australian artist who provided backing vocals on Zero 7 tracks, wrote songs for Christina Aguilera's upcoming studio release and had her cult-favorite single "Breathe Me" featured on "Six Feet Under" – is a rare breed of performer. Her unreal ability to convey emotion through vocal control is unprecedented in the indie-rock realm; her talents give her the ability to stay largely under the radar while still generating a huge following of dedicated fans. Sia's soulful, jazz-inspired voice, mixed with her penchant for creating music that's slightly genre-bending (pop meets rock meets indie meets disco meets electronic), make listening to any one of her albums an aural adventure.
Opening for Sia is Girl in a Coma, a three-piece all-female punk-rock band who provide the perfect compliment to the Australian singer's edgy persona. Girl in a Coma have made quite a name for themselves in the rock circuit, starting from scratch in their homebase of San Antonio, Texas. The band got their feet wet by playing local gigs in punk-rock clubs and parties, then toured across the country extensively before catching the ear and interest of the legendary Joan Jett. After signing on to Jett's label, Girl in a Coma was granted the ability to extend their talents to many more listeners, drawing inspiration from their own personal heroes – Morrissey, The Smiths and of course, Jett.
Girl in a Coma is touring to promote their 2009 release, "Trio B.C." Sia's fifth studio album, "We Are Born" will be released in June.
