Award winning UK gospel group sensation, Siani,
is ready to stamp their hallmark on the urban music
scene with the release of their forthcoming album,
titled, Love Is.
Siani, three young, fresh and talented
female vocalists have been singing gospel since as
long as they can remember. The group, formally started
nearly three years ago, and have now established themselves
as front-runners on the UK Gospel circuit, with their
distinct contemporary R’n’B Urban sound,
likened by some to Mary Mary and Brandy.
Group members, Simone,
who recently participated in Fame Academy and Nicholle
are cousins, and performed duets together before joining
forces with longstanding friend, Agery.
Contrary to popular belief, the group’s name
is not a misspelling of the famous Mount Sinai but
simply comes from the first letters of each group
members’ name: Simone, Agery and Nicholle. SI
A NI is pronounced SY-YA-NY.
The girls started out performing
at church concerts and taking part in competitions,
doing cover versions to popular songs. They soon learnt
that the way forward was to write their own material.
In 2001, Siani released their debut single, We Ain’t
Got No…and sold 2,000 copies on the back of
live performances and gigs! This track paved the way
for greater success with subsequence releases into
the gospel market of an enhanced CD and EP promoting
their songs, The Corner and Missing You.
Following two years of hardwork, Siani release their
long awaited debut album, Love Is. The group enlisted
some of the UK’s leading producers, namely Linslee
Campbell, Miss Cherokee, Antoine Stone, Adrian McKenzie,
Patrick ‘Whiteboy’ White, Chris Brooks
and Ibe, to help put this phenomenal album together.
Renowned producer, Linslee Campbell produced their
mainstream smash hit single, Love Is, which received
rave reviews from, not only the gospel fraternity,
but also the mainstream radio and press media.
Siani has grown from strength to
strength, performing extensively up and down the UK
and the rest of Europe, building their enormous fan-base
and supporting many renowned urban acts including
Misteeq, Damage, Omar, Mica Paris and US best selling
gospel artistes Donnie McClurkin, Fred Hammond and
Siani has won Blues and Soul Urban
Music Award 2002 and 2003 for best Gospel Group and
also won the Gospel Entertainment Award 2003/04 for
best group. To top all accolades, the group was nominated
for the 2004 MOBO Award for Best Gospel Group and
won the 2004 prestige GEM award for Best Album. The
girls are causing major stirs in the UK, USA, Europe,
Africa and Australia. Three tracks from their forthcoming
album, namely Get Up On The Floor, The Corner, and
Love Is have reached the no1 spot in Blues & Soul
magazine Hip Chart. The single, Love Is, has been
