Dick Siegel never loses an edge that ranges from wry to sharp. Dick won the Best New Folk Artist award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, and he's inspired plenty of songwriters in Michigan and beyond. Recently he's been showing up at next-generation roots events like Hollerfest and fitting right in. Dick is an immensely gifted and versatile composer. Ranging from jump blues and Buddy Holly-style pop to folk balladry and new folk lyricism, his songs offer all sorts of immediate lyrical and musical pleasures. Dick was named in WDET's list of the most important and influential artists in the history of Detroit, alongside legends such as John Lee Hooker, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin. "I'm celebratory—I celebrate life from the huge to the minute, from the tragic to the hilarious," he explains. In concert, he expertly steps into the roles of a raconteur, a confidante, your best friend, a prophet, a comedian, a pair of eyes on the universe, and an interpreter of daydreams.
