Siegel, whose CDs can be
found at Borders and
Schoolkids in Exile in Ann
Arbor and through the
Web site vvvvw.cdbaby.com,
evolves his material as he
opens up to new influ-
ences.
"I draw my sounds from
all sorts of sources," says
the musician, whose lat-
est CD showcases his
variety and was recorded
in Nashville to draw
authentic country string
players.
A Humanistic Jew, he
includes "Joshua," a song
about love taken from
the Bible story, and
moves on to the very dif-
ferent "Starlight Rodeo,"
a reaction to insomnia.
Siegel, who grew up in
a musical family in New
Jersey, tried many instru-
ments and settled on the
drums while in high
school. During his teens,
he played in a rock 'n' roll
band and spent more quiet
times taking up painting
and sculpture.
In college, where he
majored in English, Siegel
began writing poetry and
playing guitar. He started
putting more energy into
music because it was less
isolating than his fine arts projects,
and he built a following at area clubs,
including The Ark, where he still fre-
quently appears.
"Ann Arbor is very enjoyable for a
performer," Siegel says. "I always felt
very encouraged."
Siegel made his first CD, Snap, in
1980, working with the band
Ministers of Melody. His second CD,
Angels Aweigh, was recorded in 1994.
"I started out very folksy and discov-
ered Louis Jordan and swing," Siegel
explains about the changes in his style.
"After that, I let go of stylistic
restraints and kept opening up more
and more to different influences. Last
year, I learned to play the mandolin."
Siegel can call upon some of his fine
art abilities as he works in another
occupation, construction, building
homes and home additions as well as
doing remodeling.
He and his wife, Karen, a high
school teacher, took on a personal
project after finding a 1914 home in

to their liking with an open design

"I consider any place I happen to sit
in my home as my music room,"
Siegel says. "I think of music as fun,
and I play songs and read to my
daughter, Arden, [age 5]. We don't
have a television because we think kids
can get too transfixed by it." ❑
