Josias Yglesias and Haley Grant formed electronic pop duo SIAS in Detroit, Michigan, and quickly secured a few sync placements on MTV for their music. Following up on a standout performance at EDC Mexico 2020, SIAS join forces with fellow Detroit artists - rapper Sam Be Yourself and emcee/producer Jemille Ali - to explore themes of resilience and personal liberty in an enigmatic world of tough love and hard lessons.
You might recognize Sam Be Yourself from his appearances on Netflix’s hip-hop reality show Rhythm + Flow with Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and Ti. New single "Sticks and Stones" presents a blend of electro-pop melodies with a hip hop backbone, and together with an obvious passion for live instrumentation, delivers a brooding electronic backdrop for Sam Be Yourself's emotional flow about staying strong in the face of life's obstacles. "Sticks and Stones" is an impressive and hook-filled statement about just how far some of us will go to build the life we want.
