SIENA soul-pop band

Siena is a visionary: a professional songwriter, pianist, vocalist, educator, and community organizer. Her band plays soul-soaking tunes, both covers and originals, that leave audiences smiling and dancing.
Siena's debut album has been called "immersive" and "brilliantly written" (The Bennington Banner), with messages of "joyous love and intimacy" (Times Argus). She is committed to exploring humanness through music.
Her powerful voice and raw lyrics reflect a desire to become more open with her listeners. In addition to performing her music internationally, she teaches private piano lessons and organizes community-strengthening events that creatively combine art forms: live music plus original art by the audience, and poetry readings with an improvised musical score.

"Certainly this is an album from a strong woman's point of view."
"Her first album, Dear House, is a brilliantly written set of soulful songs about home & family, sadness & joy - it invites listeners into the hearth of Siena's heart, and it absolutely does not hold back."
(Musicians of Rochester)
"Facciolo has formidable vocal talent — an undeniably strong tone, a polished delivery, and fearlessness when the songs require raw emotion...Siena is a gifted group poised for bigger things."
