The past few months for Sigala have been an eventful few to say the least, already with a UK #1 single under his belt ‘Easy Love’ is proving to become a worldwide hit and with his follow up single ’Sweet Lovin’ about to drop, Sigala shows no sign of slowing down.
Sigala boasts an impressive early musical background, after learning to play the piano at 8 years old, he achieved grade 8 only a few years later. He spent his teens first listening to jazz, then the likes of Pendulum, Sub Focus, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy.
After he finished university, the allure of playing gigs in unsigned bands on the toilet circuit was beginning to wear off and Sigala found himself wanting to be in the studio, writing and producing more and more for others. Fast-forward a mere eight months later and Sigala’s ascent found him at Tileyard Studios, surrounded by all those artists that he adored as a student who are all residents there (Pendulum + Sub Focus). It was when he was asked to do a 37th mix for a well-known artist that he decided to make a life change. Tired and frustrated he reached for a six-pack of Desperados (a tequila flavored beer) and he turned on his computer to download an acappella of the Jackson 5’s ‘ABC’. It was then that the monster ‘Easy Love’ was born. Within a few days it had been picked up by Ministry of Sound.
Now based at Tileyard Studios he’s surrounded by the artists he adored as a student (Pendulum, Sub Focus are all residents there). As well as his own forthcoming releases, Sigala is writing songs for artists Ella Eyre (on her single ‘Good Times’). Piano based instrumentals and jazz chords are still evident throughout, showing that his technical background lends itself generously to his present sound.
Sigala has no doubt made some momentous strides in the past few months but he is quick to admit that he still has a long way to go. However, with his sky-high ambition and perseverance, it looks like he’s only just getting started.
