Sian Evans (born 9 October 1971) is a Welsh singer from Caerphilly.[citation needed] She was formerly a member of the band Kosheen, with whom she found major success across Europe.


Sian Evans — singer, songwriter and energetic center of the Kosheen band, where she gained huge success and popularity around the world in the early 2000s with such hits as «Catch», «Hide U», «Hungry» and «All in my head». She has also done other work with Simon Kingman and played live at Glastonbury 2008.[1]

In 2011, she featured on DJ Fresh's song, "Louder", which was used as part of a Lucozade Lite advertising campaign in the UK and Ireland. The song was released on 3 July 2011. It debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, Download Chart, UK Dance Chart, UK Indie Chart and the Scottish Charts with first week sales of 140,000 copies.[2] It also peaked number four on the Irish Singles Chart based on UK success.

Her beautiful, magical and soulful voice also appears on several tracks on Roger Shah's artist album Openminded. A new version of "Hide U" along with two other original tracks "In The Light" and "Shine" all appear on the album.

Nowadays Sian Evans has a new project with long-term writing partner, Ron McElroy. Mixing new works with their substantial back catalogue (Kosheen, DJ Fresh) they have created a thing of great beauty. The influence of Jazz and Classical musicians on Evans and McElroy’s elemental writing style bought about a perfect musical storm, with rays of sunlight shining through. This is the beginning of a new chapter for her solo career. [3]
