This is John Sieger.

John Sieger has been up to his ears in music his whole life. As a songwriter, he’s written or co-written songs recorded by many artists, including Dwight Yoakam, Robbie Fulks, Flaco Jimenez and The BoDeans.

These days he sings and plays guitar in three bands – Semi-Twang, The R&B Cadets, and The Subcontinentals – at clubs, festivals and parties throughout the upper midwest.

Sieger on Songs, is his weekly column for Urban Milwaukee, where he hops inside songs he loves and tries to show the hidden machinery that makes them work. John is also a contributor to Lake Effect on WUWM, sharing songs and special guests on The Monthly Beatdown.  

When he’s not performing and writing, he offers songwriting workshops and guitar lessons. His pet projects, Milwaukee Gospel Jubilee and Gospel Brunch at Colectivo, benefit Progressive Community Health Centers, where he is an active board member.
