Sia - some people have REAL problems reviews, Jimmy Kimmel + tour dates (SXSW)

It's been a big week for Sia! Following months of internet buzz that included strong support from sites ranging from Myspace to Perez Hilton to and, Sia's new solo release, 'some people have REAL problems' (Monkey Puzzle Records/Hear Music), has debuted at #26 on the Billboard charts, selling more than 20,000 copies and finishing ahead of fellow press darling Kate Nash. The album also hit #3 on iTunes, and #2 on Rhapsody.

Sia celebrated the album's release with a performance on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on January 8, followed by a tour of New York City in a specially designed bus that escorted her to 3 jam-packed performances at The Apple Store (Soho), Virgin Megastore and Starbucks.

Sia will follow all this with a very special performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on January 25th, 2008 (tune in for a surprise!). Sia will also be featured in an upcoming two-page spread in the February issue of Spin, and a feature in Rolling Stone.

Fans excited for her upcoming North American tour, which kicks off February 15, can also check out exclusive performance videos from her recent show at Hiro Ballroom (NYC) on "AT&T Blue Room."
