Maurice Sigler

Profile:
American banjoist and songwriter.
Born in New York City, moved to Birmingham, Alabama at an early age.
In the 1920s Sigler was a member of the Birmingham-based band of reedman Jack Linx, which made a series of field trip recordings in Atlanta for Okeh Records from 1924 to 1927.
From the 1930s onwards Sigler focused more on work as a song lyricist.
Sigler moved to England in 1934 and wrote scores to the London stage production This’ll Make You Whistle and the British films Come Out of the Pantry, First a Girl, When Knights Were Bold and She Shall Have Music.
Sigler also had great success collaborating with Tin Pan Alley songwriters like Al Hoffman, Al Goodhart and Mabel Wayne. Some of his biggest hits were “Here it is Monday and I’ve Still Got a Collar”, “Why Don’t You Practice What You Preach?”, “Little Man, You’ve Had a Busy Day”, “I’m in a Dancing Mood”, “Without Rhythm”, “There Isn’t Any Limit to My Love”, “Everything Stops for Tea”, “From One Minute to Another”, “I Can Wiggle My Ears”, “Say the Word”, “Everything’s in Rhythm With My Heart”, “Let’s Put Some People to Work”, “She Shall Have Music” and “I Saw Stars.”
