Michele Sherman aka Siya, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2012, she signed with American R&B singer-songwriter Tank's R&B Money label imprint. She starred in the Oxygen reality TV series Sisterhood of Hip Hop. Siya has collaborated with artists such as Chris Brown, Sage the Gemini and Kirko Bangz. Siya has performed alongside artists such as Wyclef Jean at the world famous B.B. Kings, as well as opened up for Fat Joe and Fabolous during a concert at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York.
Music became an outlet for Siya to comprehend and deal with the things she was exposed to and was feeling. After moving to Atlanta to pursue her music career in her mid 20s she built a rep and fan base for herself and caught the attention of well known artist and major labels. Siya faced a lot of obstacles throughout her early time in the industry due to her being one of the first openly gay female rappers. While some people in the industry were afraid of how an openly gay female rapper would fit into the genre, Siya remained determined and refused to compromise who she is and stayed true to her own voice and style.
R&B legend Tank soon found her and directly messaged Siya on Twitter and from there she was signed to Tank's label R&B Money LLC. Siya released her single "I'm Gone", "Smoke Drink", and mixtape Elevator Dreams in 2011.
Siya released her singles "One Hunnid" and "Real MVP" in 2014. She released a mixtape titled Better Late Than Never, and What Never Happened in 2015. She went on to release her debut studio album SIYAvsSIYA, on December 9, 2016. The album included collaborations with artists such as Ashley Rose, Jake&Papa, Lyric Wright and Kreesha Turner with the debut single being "New York."
On February 6, 2017, Siya released a song titled "Front Door", in promotion for her six song extended play (EP), Commitment. The EP was released on February 10, 2017, under Tank's label imprint, R&B Money LLC. The EP features the single "Don't You (Say Yes)" featuring Tank.
