Ian Siegal

It has been said that had Siegal been around in the sixties he would today be accorded the same reverence as artists such as Van Morrison, Joe Cocker and Eric Clapton. Instead, he is a child of the seventies who dropped out of art college in the late eighties to go busking in Germany. From the streets of Berlin Siegal progressed to clubs around Nottingham, then to London and ultimately to major stages around Europe.


Classic Rock tags Siegal "a national treasure," America's blues bible says "vast talent" and MOJO magazine ranks him "the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK." He has taken his music to more than 45 countries and presided over a trophy haul that includes 10 British Blues Awards, four European Blues Awards, two Mojo Blues Albums Of The Year not to mention three US Blues Music Awards nominations - an unprecedented nod for a non-American.

 

"One of the most gifted singers & writers in contemporary blues" - MOJO.
