Susan Janet Ballion (lahir 27 Mei 1957), dikenal secara profesional dengan nama Siouxsie Sioux, adalah seorang penyanyi, penulis lagu, musikus dan produser rekaman asal Inggris.[1] Ia dikenal sebagai penyanyi utama grup musik rok Siouxsie and the Banshees (1976–1996). Grup ini merilis 11 album studio dan memiliki sejumlah singel laris di Inggris, termasuk "Hong Kong Garden", "Happy House", "Peek-a-Boo", dan singel hit Billboard Top 25 AS "Kiss Them for Me".

Siouxsie juga membentuk grup musik keduanya bernama the Creatures (1981–2005). Bersama the Creatures, ia merekam empat album studio dan melahirkan singel hit "Right Now". Setelah hengkang dari the Creatures pada pertengahan 2000-an, ia melanjutkan kariernya sebagai penyanyi solo, memakai nama Siouxsie, dan merilis album bertajuk Mantaray pada tahun 2007, yang dipuji oleh para kritikus.

AllMusic menobatkan Siouxsie sebagai "salah satu penyanyi Inggris paling berpengaruh pada era musik rok".[2] Lagunya telah dinyanyikan ulang oleh Jeff Buckley,[3] Tricky[4] dan LCD Soundsystem.[5] Rekamannya juga dipuji oleh sejumlah seniman seperti PJ Harvey[6] dan TV on the Radio.[7] Pada 2011, ia dianugerahi penghargaan Outstanding Contribution to Music pada ajang Q Awards[8] dan tahun 2012, pada Ivor Novello Awards, ia menerima Inspiration Award.[9]

"I've always tried to make a song that begins like "Kiss Them for Me". I think songs like "I Was a Lover" or "Wash the Day away" came from that element of surprise mode where all of a sudden this giant drum comes in and you're like, what the fuck?! That record was the first one where I was like, okay, even my friends who don't know who the Cure or Sonic Youth are, they're going to fall for this. I feel like that transition into that record was a relief for me. Really beautiful music was always considered too weird by the normal kids and that was the first example where I thought, we've got them, they're hooked! I watched people dance to that song, people who had never heard of any of the music that I listened to, they heard that music in a club and went crazy."
