Career

Early career

Fielder is based at Tileyard Studios in Kings Cross, London but originally hails from Norfolk. He first got into music at age 8, when he began to play the piano, which he has up to grade 8. He attended Reepham High School and the University of Westminster and has a BA honours degree in commercial music along with attending Norwich City College.

2015-present: Breakthrough and Brighter Days

After leaving university, Fielder was a member of assorted unsigned bands before moving on to mixing and producing works for others, including co-writing "Good Times" by Ella Eyre with Sigma.

His debut single, "Easy Love", came about after Fielder drank a six-pack of Desperados, a tequila flavoured beer, in sheer tiredness and frustration after being asked to perform a thirty-seventh mix for a popular artist and downloaded an a cappella of the Jackson 5's single "ABC". In an interview with the Official Charts Company, he stated that the record was written on a Sunday evening out of a desire to create music for himself outside of the confines of "somebody asking me to create a song that had a certain sound to it or had to be a certain way".

A music video was commissioned for the song which was set in Los Angeles and features Lucky Aces, a Canadian duo composed of 12-year-olds Lucky and AC, dancing along to it; in the video, after meeting each other, they challenge a number of child gangs. It was directed by Craig Moore, who said of it that he opted to shoot in Los Angeles due to the "pool of talent that would've been hard to find anywhere else" and that his attention was caught by Lucky Aces after spotting them on The Ellen Show. Within a few days, it had been picked up by Ministry of Sound, and the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number 71, based on streams alone. The following week, it reached number one.

Fielder's second single is called "Sweet Lovin'".

Released on 4 December 2015, it reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, with vocals from singer-songwriter Bryn Christopher.

Sigala released his third single, "Say You Do", on YouTube on 23 January 2016, and the single was released officially on 18 March 2016. The song features a sample of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" and DJ Fresh, with vocals from singer Imani.

Sigala was later reported to be working on his debut studio album, revealing later on that his dream collaborations would be Stevie Wonder and Chris Martin. Shortly after this was announced, his next single, "Give Me Your Love", featuring vocals from John Newman and partial production works from Nile Rodgers, was released on 8 April 2016.

On 23 February 2018, Fielder released a single with Paloma Faith titled "Lullaby". On 13 March 2018, Fielder confirmed via his Twitter account that he had nearly finished his debut album.

On 24 May 2018, Sigala announced his upcoming debut album Brighter Days and is expected on 21 September 2018. A mini-concert tour is set to take place in the United Kingdom and Ireland in support of the album.
