7 Questions for Songbird Sia Furler

Every so often a vocalist comes along, grabs you by the ears and has you addicted to her tones. For me right now, that vocalist is Sia Furler. You may not know her face but you surely know her voice. Her song “Breathe Me” was featured in the unforgettable last scene of the Six Feet Under series finale. Know her now?

You probably also know her from her vocal work on the Grammy-nominated Zero 7 album, “The Garden”—love that record.
