  • ACCLAIMED SINGER/SONGWRITER JOHN SIEGER TO RELEASE NEW SOLO ALBUM A WALK IN THE PARK WITH GUITARIST GREG KOCH APRIL 1ST!

    John Sieger leads one of the better resurrections in recent times, the Milwaukee-based band Semi-Twang. They recorded one album for Warner Bros in 1988 and then took a short twenty-year break. Since they reunited in 2009, they have put out two stellar recordings, The Wages Of Sin and last years The Why & The What For. Both have earned superlatives from critics. Sieger’s songs have been covered by Dwight Yoakam, Robbie Fulks, Flaco Jimenez, Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), The Persuasions and The BoDeans among others. He started writing with guitar virtuoso Greg Koch in the fall of 2012 and they took a break after their 67th song. Ten of these gems appear on Greg’s 2013 album, Plays Well With Others. That album has guest appearances from Paul Barerre (Little Feat), Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, Roscoe Beck, John Cleary and Brannen Temple. John and Greg just returned from Europe where they played 18 dates in three weeks, and are now readying the second installment of their studio work together, A Walk In The Park, set for national release on April 1, 2014 via Faux Real.

    “Writing songs with Greg Koch happened mostly by accident,” Sieger admitted. “The universe must have demanded it and arranged for him to be loitering outside the Tosa Village Starbucks on a sunny day in September 2012. When he suggested we try this, I asked him why he was trying to end his career. Now I am happy we saw it through. This batch is just scratching the surface of a pile of twisted, beautiful and funny songs that I’m extremely proud of. Hope you like!”

  • PRESS QUOTES:

    • “’Baby Sister’ from John Sieger & Greg Koch’s new album ‘A Walk In The Park’ is soft, bluesy track that showcases Koch’s masterful picking.” – AMERICAN SONGWRITER
    • “Guitar Player is proud to premiere "Let Me Try Again," a track from revered Milwaukee singer-songwriter-guitarist John Sieger and fellow Brew City madman Greg Koch's forthcoming collaboration, A Walk in the Park, which is set for national release on April 1 on Faux Real records.” – GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE
    • “Milwaukee songwriter and guitarist and Semi-Twang’s fearless leader John Sieger, and Milwaukee guitar ace and bon vivant Greg Koch have recently paired up to form a writing partnership. One of the results is the 12-song CD “A Walk In The Park”, a follow-up of last year’s “Greg Koch Plays Well With Others”. Ranging from the sweet and sentimental to the off-kilter and oddly funny, the songs show off Koch’s casual virtuosity and Sieger’s voice, which has developed a nice raspy warmth of late.” – WKLH RADIO
    • With Americana this appealing, may John Sieger’s collaboration with blues guitarist Greg Koch continue.” - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
