Janis Siegel

Over the past four decades, the voice of Janis Siegel, a nine-time Grammy winner and a seventeen-time Grammy nominee, has been an undeniable force in The Manhattan Transfer’s diverse musical catalog. Alongside her career as a founding member of this musical institution, Siegel has also sustained a solo career that has spawned almost a dozen finely-crafted solo albums and numerous collaborative projects, amassed a large international fan base and garnered consistently high critical praise. Janis continues to tour with The Manhattan Transfer and her own band, continues to teach and do masterclasses, all while she gears up for her newest solo release “NightSongs” on Palmetto Records in September of 2013. This latest project, her first self- produced venture, is a collection of late night love songs, features some of N.Y.’s most inventive musicians including pianist/arranger John di Martino, Steve Khan, Dominick Farinacci, Joel Frahm , Luisito Quintero and Christian McBride. The record continues to explore various fusions of Latin rhythm coupled with contemporary songs and a jazz/pop vocal sensibility. There are also 3 original songs…”Love Saves” ( Salvapantallas) with music by Jorge Drexler, has an original English lyric by Janis. “Sweet September Rain” and “As You Leave My Nest” ( which only appears on the Japanese release ) has lyrics by Rabbi Harry Levin and Janis.
