A Note from Janis Siegel:
Dear Friends on the Other Side of the World,
I’ll be taking some time off from my much beloved harmony singing with TMT and will be traveling to the Phillipines and Australia in the coming weeks for some solo shows. Along wth my musical merry men, John di Martino and Boris Kozlov, I will be performing (both old favorites and new stuff!), making new friends and exploring these beautiful countries… I’ll also be doing some recording with flautist, Jane Rutter in Sydney. And I’d love to see YOU there!
