…“Lush Mechanique” is peerless. Sieber has created a tribal, insistent, intense, and evocative atmosphere with exquisite cello tones in the center.
Lush Mechanique’ is a marvelous, vivid album…a testament to Sieber’s compositional skills…and amazing flexibility and prowess on the electric cello.

Jami Sieber explores the breadth and depth of her instrument on her debut solo recording, “Lush Mechanique.” Even when you don’t think it’s a cello, it probably is! Her compositions blend beauty, integrity, and eclectic musical elements to create an innovative work. From the rhythmic playfulness in “Dancing at the Temple Gate,” to the pathos of “Your Leaving,” the cello reaches into your heart.
In 1997, “Lush Mechanique” gained distinction by being one of LadySlipper’s top ten best-selling recordings by female artists, placing Sieber among the ranks of the Indigo Girls, k.d. lang, and Ani DiFranco.
Jami is joined on this recording by northwest artists Will Dowd (percussion), Louis Peralta (percussion), and Kim Scanlon (vocals).
