  • Janis Siegel

    For nearly 60 years, Janis Siegel’s voice has been an undeniable force in the world of jazz and popular music. A founding member of THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER, Janis’ powerful and versatile voice became one of the groups most recognized trademarks – singing lead on some of their biggest hits including “Boy From New York City”, “Operator”, “Chanson D’Amour”, “Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone”, “Mystery“, “Spice of Life” and “Birdland”. Performing for audiences around the world, TMT and Siegel amassed a large international fan base and garnered consistently high critical praise, including 10 GRAMMY awards and 18 nominations.

    Siegel has also enjoyed an eclectic solo career, spawning more than a dozen finely crafted solo albums and participating in numerous collaborative projects with some of the world’s most renowned musicians, producers, composers, and arrangers. She also co-hosts WBGO’s SINGERS UNLIMITED radio program with Lezlie Harrison and VOCAL GUMBO – a virtual music program celebrating the vocal arts with Lauren Kinhan of the New York Voices. 

    "I think people will always respond to emotion and to great songs sung well,” she says. “And I think that vocalists will always be in demand. There’s nothing that approximates the human voice. When you come down to it, people want to feel something."
