SINGING UNDER NEON
AND GROUNDED IN THE DIRT
Trading traditional, flat countryside pastures for impeccable mountainscapes, dry desert richness and gleaming strip lights, Siena is a neon cowgirl out of none other than Las Vegas. Siena’s rodeo stage is set, having already shared it with Rascal Flatts, Big & Rich, and Rodney Atkins, to name a few. These artists also are her influences along with modern country music icons like Carrie Underwood and Kasey Musgraves. With heavy hitters in the industry like these believing in her, it’s hard to believe. Unlike most artists her age, she moves away from modern country-pop and dives more into her roots of 2000s country, in both her music and fashion. One day you may see her in a nod to her italian roots and true Spaghetti Western spirit and the next you may not recognize her in her work gloves, getting down to business in a metal factory. This Vegas cowgirl isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty as she enjoys hand welding her own horseshoes and working part-time as a mechanics assistant. She isn’t just the girl next door, she’s a champion horseback rider.
A bolo tie resting confidently around her neck and a wide brim hat shading her eyes, Siena is an artist the twenty-first century has yet to see. She has been surprising crowds all over her bright hometown of Las Vegas since she was 10 years old, corralling and conquering stages such as the Thomas & Mack Center, The Cox Pavilion, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Orleans Arena, and Thompson-Boling Arena. To her, being an artist means spreading positivity and encouragement like the west coast sunshine. “I hope to engage my audiences with positivity and love,” says Siena. “With the lyrics and melodies created, I want people to engage that ‘at home’ feeling when they hear my music. I want my listeners to feel fun, encouraged, lively, and free.”
Siena’s journey has given her the opportunity to co-write with renowned songwriters such as Eliot Sloane (Blessid Union of Souls), Bobby E. Boyd (“God Bless the Broken Road”), and Bill Diluigi, but the path hasn’t always been easy. On October 1, 2017, the young singer-songwriter attended a music festival excited to see some of her favorite acts such as Jason Aldean. This would be a festival she would never forget, as the shooting that took place at the 2017 Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas would leave almost one thousand people injured, impacting all attendees. Though Siena was unharmed in the attack, she was left with only a week to defeat her PTSD and open for Rascal Flatts. The challenge did not deter her from her passion but instead showed her how important music and performing is to her.
Siena’s sunshine personality and authentic country charm have captivated diverse audiences for years. With her deep, rustic vocals, she’s destined to carry on country traditions with her music and metalwork. Siena relies heavily upon traditional country storytelling to express herself as she looks to paint stories through personal experiences.
