SIAS – April 21 @ 8pm LIVE STREAM
SIAS is an independent alternative-world band originating from Detroit, Michigan. The group was formed by 3 childhood friends, including lead singer-songwriter Josias Yglesias, pianist Haley Grant, and guitarist Scott Posada after high school graduation in 2011. In 2012, Yglesias and Posada attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, majoring in Music Business and Electronic Production & Design. Grant also lived in Boston and was accepted into Berklee, yet moved back to Detroit with Yglesias and Posada to study Music Business at the Detroit Institute of Music Education. Upon relocating, SIAS focused on artist development and constructing an environment for an array of music related tasks.
In 2014, SIAS made the decision to pursue music in Detroit when they began the development of numerous Detroit-based projects to reflect their visions and passion for the city’s growth. The projects include their first independent “ORIGIN” EP, original instrument design, and their physical location labeled “12th Street Studios” in Corktown, Detroit. In May of 2016, SIAS completed “ORIGIN” which incorporated the fusion of diverse live instrumentation, electronic textures, and lyrical rhythms, giving the album earthy, cinematic, and galactic feels. Pulling inspiration from film scores, world music, hip-hop, electronic, and from artists like Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, & Jack Johnson, SIAS developed their unique & independent sonic brand, set to be released on August 5th of 2016.
