As a UNESCO City of Music, this mural is the first public art commission celebrating the City of Music Laneway Project in West End precinct with Sia Furler inspired mural located at the Rockford Hotel, corner of Hindley Street and Morphet Street by artist Jasmine Crisp. The laneway next to the Rockford Hotel and JamFactory has been named for Sia, where she performed regularly in the mid-1990s at the nearby now-demolished Cargo Club, formerly on Hindley Street West, with her acid jazz band Crisp.

Reflecting upon the opportunity, Jasmine says “Sia was the first act I saw perform at the Adelaide Big Day Out in 2011. It was one of my first concerts, I had freshly turned 16 and felt nervous among the large, unfamiliar crowd. She arrived on stage in a personally crafted theatrical dress and paper crown. She stood among instruments all decorated with her bright crochet wrappings. Sia spoke with the audience as much as she sang, she shared sign language symbols with hands in the crowd and communicated with every onlooker with inclusivity and passion. I was never nervous in a crowd after Sia.”
