Mermaid Spotlight: SIA SHELLS

Written By Kate Vontaine 07 Nov 2017
Mermaid Spotlight: SIA SHELLS

Where are you from?

Toronto but I travel a lot :)


How did you get your start?

In music- been doing it since I was tiny fish! School musicals, after school, growing it to my own individual music projects and me becoming my own band. Mermaiding- I've been a mermaid forever!


What's your main lyrical inspiration?

I fancy anything bizarre - but I also love the jazz and the blues. Trip hop or experimental was what I grew up with so it's what I gravitate towards usually.


What's your aesthetic and sound inspiration?

My aesthetic is anything living int he fantasy realm - where dreams overlap realities. Where fantastical scenarios happen in our reality. My sound inspiration- has been described as "mermaid electro" "experimental" or "dream pop"


Who were your favorite musicians growing up?

Oh gosh - I seriously love so many, but to name a few: David Bowie, Bjork, Billie Holiday, Hole, Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack, Amy Winehouse.
