Remember the name: Siobhan Sio! | Get to know Sio’s sound and journey
Written by Bridgette Makhela on 22nd Nov 2020
Siobhan, Sio is a South African, Johannesburg-based songstress that makes magic through using a blend of music and poetry to tell her stories. She is a lover of melodies and words that mainly express love, thoughtfulness and a spunk of rebellion.
Call her a sought after vocalist that is acclaimed both locally and abroad, Sio is respected for her unique gift of voice and storytelling. Her storytelling weaves through Soul, Electronic, Hip Hop, House and Dance music, Sio definitely possesses a “standing out” aura and she considers herself a lyrical snob, as she writes songs which look at things from a different angle.
She has collaborated with artists such as Luka, Jullian Gomes, rkls, Kid Fonque, Fred Everything, UPZ, Cuebur, Dwson And Charles Webster to name a few, with remixes of the hit single 1000 Memories By Jullian Gomes reworked by the stellar quartet of Osùnlade, Fred Everything, Karizma, Atjazz and many more worldwide.
Sio refuses to cave in to industry expectation. Her debut album Sbtxts, where she shares very personal snippets of herself, released worldwide on 23 August 2019 is a capsule of story-driven soulful, electronic sounds that capture a time of a girl in love and has been very well received globally. She teams up with the UK’s Atjazz, and South Africa’s Luka, Daev Martian, Zain Valley and Jullian Gomes to show off her softer, more sensitive romantic side, which earned her the Apple Music artist spotlight for the Month of September 2019.
Sió’s music is available for download on all platforms. For more music, keep it locked to The Global Experience hosted by Just Mo every Sunday on YFM from 2PM-6PM.
