"BCF CD Review"

Don't worry about sending money: These three guys have all the bones they need. They make a plenty-noisy punk-rock racket, tempered by humor and just the right touch of melody. --Nate Seltenreich, East Bay Express, 9/5/2007 - East Bay Express

"Freedirt Media Review - band"

"The Boneless Children Foundations new CD ‘Stars For Anyone’ is a throwback to a time when humor in music mattered. BCF writes catchy lyrics, engaging melodies and if sex appeal were sound the whole bay area would be deaf." --Paco Romane, Freedirt Media - Freedirt Media

"Bay Bridged song review"

"The title track from Boneless Children Foundation’s brand new album Stars for Anyone is a wonderful slice of indie rock." - The Bay Bridged website

"The Boneless Children Foundation - Stars For Anyone album review, wiretap music"

"With Stars for Anyone, The Boneless Children Foundation has created a massive album that swerves and boogies with classic rock n' roll riffs and delightfully quirky and engaging lyrics. The songs overflow with ideas, while musical passages are juxtaposed in a way that suggests the giddiness of a band like Sparks."

"The Boneless Children Foundation rocks guitar, bass, and drums for almost forty minutes on this eleven song album, with lead guitarist/singer/songwriter David Sophia Siegel leading the way. He's a reckless lead vocalist who shouts, croons, pleads, and sings over the carefully crafted music with such emotion that you can't help but listen to what he's trying to say. On the track 'Sigh,' for instance, he sings of wounded disillusionment in a subdued voice while the band plays a mid-tempo shuffle with such delicate dynamics that the track could easily be a radio hit."

"Siegel’s also a wild and thrilling guitar player who makes his songs chug and squeal like T.Rex or Television. But he isn't hanging his hat solely on his stellar guitar heroics. Many of these songs are crafted with pop hooks and melodic touches that satisfy like the Cars or David Bowie. The Boneless Children Foundation's combination of epic rock maneuvers and classic pop melodies reminds me of Weezer, but with rootsier rock influences that will appeal to fans of the White Stripes or Two Gallants. Stars for Anyone is self-recorded, and the album’s lo-fi tone has a rawness that contrasts nicely with the complexity of each song's arrangement."

Bio - the rock music! - the film compositions!

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Boneless Children Foundation's music ranges from simple, poetic creations to hardhitting punk rock sideshows. Born & raised in St. Louis, Missouri, San Francisco transplant David Sophia Siegel leads his band of musical malcontents through the perilous environment of rock music today. This group has developed a unique sound that has earned them comparison to The Police, The Talking Heads, The Who and The Unicorns, among others.

The Boneless Children Foundation's debut album "Stars For Anyone" charted as high as #200 on the weighted CMJ charts in November of 2007. Furthermore, also in 2007 the band was featured on the San Francisco-based Thread Productions compilation, “Dragon Slayers, Volume 2,” along with a host of impressive San Francisco Bay Area bands including Tartufi, Or The Whale, Birds and Batteries, and the band was featured on NPR's online Open Mic program, was honored to be mentioned and linked in a music blog on the New York Times website, and in the last week of 2007 and the first week of 2008 was a featured CMJ/Sonicbids artist!

David Sophia Siegel moved out to the Bay Area to play rock and roll music. The Boneless Children Foundation rose from the ashes of several other bands of which he was a part, including The Boneless Children Foundation version 1.0. Welcome to 2.0.

This version of the band formed out of band-leader David Sophia-Siegel's realization that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself - and ideally with help from some extremely talented and motivated people. David grew tired of being told what things could and could not be done by the bands he was in - as they say, "Yes, we can!" After rumors that all prior band members were kicked out by the apparently-crazed Sophia-Siegel, new band-mates were found in the form of J. Logan Barrier and Jonathan Kepke, hailing from Tennessee and Long Island, respectively. Both brought unique talents to the group, including Barrier's photography ability and Kepke's magic with audio engineering. What's more, Barrier's explosive but heavily pocket-oriented drumming combined with Kepke's crazy rock and roll bass moves elevated the group to new, thrilling heights. One CD release and a ton of shows later, the band is now hard at work on their second full length album, which is slated for a late 2009 release.

The Boneless Children Foundation are a rock band of contradictions - intelligent, sometimes sardonic lyrics, catchy melodies, complex but easily-approached song structures, and a thorough enjoyment of Dionysian liberation combined with a need to be shackled and strung up so that, like Harry Houdini, the human spirit has something to fight against and from which to free oneself.

When not playing with the Boneless Children Foundation, David finds himself increasingly writing music for local, San Francisco Bay Area theatrical productions and small film and video projects, including a significant body of work with SF sketch comedy group Killing My Lobster.
