Sia got her break working with dance acts such as Zero 7 and Massive Attack. Her second solo release, Colour The Small One, moved her style from electronica to pure pop songs.
Jeremy Stacey says:
“I wasn’t supposed to be doing that record. Sia had this producer, Jimmy Hogarth, and they had an Australian drummer doing it, but for whatever reason it didn’t work out.“
“She was managed by IE Management, which is Robbie Williams’s management. I’d just done Escapology, so they put my name forward. It was great. We went to a place called Heliocentric in Rye and camped out there for a couple of weeks in a little hotel.“
“We played live as a band and did 10 tracks over a two-week period. It was a very relaxed session. I like Pro-Tools, but it’s always better if you can get a great band to play together. There’s something special about that – the push and pull between the players.”
