Today marks the debut of a new monthly music series: The Monthly Beatdown featuring Milwaukee singer-songwriter John Sieger.
Once a month on Lake Effect, Sieger will bring friends and fellow musicians into WUWM's performance studio to play and chat.
This month we hear "Frozen River", a song by Sieger and Milwaukee guitarist Greg Koch. Greg wrote the melody while he was on tour in Europe and sent it to John, who crafted the lyrics. He's joined in the studio by Greg on electric guitar and Greg's son Dylan on percussion.
