"Rounding out the evening was Nick Siegel. If you did not know anything about Nick, his choice of a button down shirt with tie for attire and only a keyboard as his instrument could’ve led one to assume he planned to lull us down with soothing piano music… But that’s not Nick’s style. After joyfully stating “These make me happy,” and passing out leis to guests, Nick tore into frantic piano numbers with the speed and dexterity of a young, chaotic Ben Folds. The audience’s jaws collectively dropped as he hammered away, rocking so hard during his last song that his glasses almost flew off. As the ashes of what once was Playlistplay House scattered around us, it was collectively decided this was a Sofar not soon to be forgotten."
-Kara Love, Sofar Sounds Kansas City
Nick Siegel is a transplant from Chicago bringing aggressive piano rock to Kansas City with influences such as Ben Folds, Death Cab for Cutie and The Mars Volta. In addition to his band, he is a member of The Casket Lottery and Sons of Great Dane.
Nick embarks on necktie shopping and close shaves on the weekends but prefers tighter relational ties and close calls (phone) during the week.
Now venturing on a new project with his latest release "Awake From the Golden State," his energetic piano approach to story telling sets a stage for the theatrics of art rock blended with the darker pulse of pop music.
