Bruce Fielder (born 1 November 1992), known professionally as Sigala, is an English DJ and record producer. He has had eight songs peak within the top ten of the UK Singles Chart, including his 2015 debut single "Easy Love", which samples "ABC" by the Jackson 5. He took on the stage name “Sigala”, after the family name of an old ancestor of his on his mother’s side.


Early career

Bruce Fielder was born and raised in Norfolk, England. 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 Norwich City College, before graduating with a BA honours degree in commercial music from the University of Westminster. He is based at Verdansk Studios in Kings Cross, London.

2015–2018: Breakthrough and Brighter Days

After university, Fielder was a member of several 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 video was commissioned for it, set in Los Angeles, and features Lucky Aces, a Canadian duo composed of 12-year-olds, Lucky and C, dancing to it; in the video, after meeting each other, they challenge a number of child gangs. It was directed by Craig Moore, who said 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 at number 71 on the UK Singles Chart on 4 September 2015 – for the week ending dated 10 September 2015 – based on streams alone. The following week, it peaked at the top of the chart.

Sigala's second single was called "Sweet Lovin'". Released on 4 December 2015, and peaked at number three 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. It features a sample of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" and DJ Fresh, with vocals from singer Imani Williams.

Sigala was reported to be working on his debut studio album, revealing 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 19 August 2016, Sigala released "Ain't Giving Up" with British singer Craig David.

Sigala contributed to "Only One" with Digital Farm Animals on 2 December 2016 and "Show You Love" with KATO, featuring vocals from American singer Hailee Steinfeld on 17 January 2017.

On 9 June 2017, Sigala collaborated with British singer-songwriter Ella Eyre for his sixth single "Came Here for Love".

On 23 February 2018, Sigala released a single with Paloma Faith titled "Lullaby". On 13 March 2018, Sigala said on Twitter that he had nearly finished his debut album.

Sigala's debut album Brighter Days was released on 28 September 2018. It peaked at number 14 in the UK. A mini-concert tour took place in the United Kingdom and Ireland in support of the album.

Sigala released "Feels Like Home" with British recording artist Fuse ODG and Jamaican rapper Sean Paul, featuring guest vocals from American recording artist Kent Jones on 14 June 2018 as the eighth single. "We Don't Care" was released on 27 July 2018 with British pop rock band The Vamps as the ninth single off the album.

On 7 September 2018, Sigala released the tenth and final single from the album titled "Just Got Paid" with Ella Eyre and American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor, featuring American rapper French Montana.
