ShoMag: We would like to thank you for taking some time this ‘one on one’ with us. For the benefit of someone out there who might be wondering who is ‘Sió’. How would you introduce yourself to them?’?
Sió: Thank you very much for the awesome invitation. For a while now, when people ask me who I am my answer is ‘I am a storyteller, My songs say so…’
ShoMag: Where is ‘Sió’ is from and what would you say is your contribution within the ‘Music Industry’?
Sió: I am from a small township south of Johannesburg, South Africa called Ennerdale, often referred to as ‘The Dale’ by those who live here and ‘The Farm’, by people from ‘Eldos’.
‘I am a lyrical snob!!!!’ I don’t like working on anything if I can’t find a new way to tell it. I bring stories, that I hope are richly told, fresh and a little off the center. ‘I hope I tell them well, so when the listener takes the time to listen, I have given them something worthwhile to listen to’.
