Sigala’s real name is Bruce Fielder. He was born in 1993 in Norwich, England. Bruce’s parents were big fans of Queen. He grew up listening to the group. Fielder’s grandfather played the organ and the accordion. Bruce often visited his grandfather’s country house and listened to him play.
Fielder was a weak child, catching colds and getting medical exemptions from physical activities. His parents found a way to keep the boy busy, which didn’t involve any tough exercises. They bought him a drum set. However, Bruce didn’t manage to learn how to play it and soon quit. Fielder’s parents didn’t give up and bought him a guitar. It didn’t turn into a hobby either. As the last hope, the boy’s father brought the piano.
Bruce immediately fell in love with the instrument and started learning how to play it. While studying in high school, Fielder learned how to play the keyboard. He participated in all the school concerts. At that time, the singer was influenced by Pearl Jam, particularly its album, Ten.
After finishing high school, Bruce enrolled in the local college. He worked hard to get a degree but never stopped playing the keyboard. At the same time, Fielder started writing lyrics. After graduation, Bruce got a job at Cash Converters.
