Sia

Australia's too-cute-for-school Sia came to prominence in the U.S. after her song "Breathe Me" was featured in the final episode of Six Feet Under. Looking back, it makes sense her big break would come on the small screen: Sia's sweet style is endearing to the fantasy-like, surreal scenarios portrayed on television. Even her Web site and album art are simple and childlike. Sia's newest collection of lighthearted, wispy pop is titled We Are Born and set to drop on June 7. Though it's a still a couple of months until it hits the stores, she's been playing songs from the record on her current North American tour. You can also get a listen to six full-length tracks on the new Web site — so much for worrying about leaks.
