Paul Siegel, Singer/Songwriter

Dublin School's own...

Paul Siegel was born and raised in the lower Hudson River Valley of New York State, where rural and urban influences collide. He has been writing songs since he was twelve years old. Inspired, as a youth, by the great writing of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, his lyrics are both intelligent and colloquial. Influenced by guitarists from Eric Clapton to Pat Metheny to King Sunny Ade, his style uniquely fuses a sublime rhythmic approach with the beauty of concise melodic statement. His voice ranges from a quiet intimacy to an enthusiastic growl evoking the blues and folk and funk vocalists of our American traditions.

Malawi-born songman Tony Bird is a complete original. With a mesmerizing intensity, his voice, vision, guitar style and persona are unique in all of folk music. Growing up in southern Africa in the era of colonialism and apartheid, Bird developed a sharp, conscious universal eye. That same urgency and relevance permeate the expanse of his new music, which now reflects his American and intercontinental experience as well as his worldly African roots.
