Sia 

Lady Croissant

Although Zero 7 brought attention to Sia by featuring her unique vocals on some of its most notable songs, she eclipsed her benefactors after her song "Breathe" was showcased in the "Six Feet Under" series finale. Lady Croissant is a live recording from Sia's show at New York's Bowery Ballroom. With an un-self-conscious approach, Sia proves she's all about getting to the heart of the song. The nasal factor of her poky vocal style is intensified live in a way that, rather than becoming annoying, reveals how deeply she is consumed by the tune. On her solo interpretation of Zero 7's "Destiny" – a song she wasn't the vocalist for originally – she takes it to another level of passion that was never present in the original version. The accompaniment of a full band fills simple compositions out to such a degree you feel like you're witnessing them on a grand stage. 5 stars.
