Grammy Nominee Seth Glier Performs at City Winery with Cheryl Wheeler February 23
"Every once in a while, an artist comes along, and they make you go, damn, I bloody love music. Seth Glier is one of those artists." - PopShade
Despite his relatively young age, Massachusetts based singer/songwriter/pianist/guitarist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. Averaging over 250+ live performances annually Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major folk festivals. He's shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets. His music has also caught the ears of fans, industry and critics alike. The incredible acclaim on his sophomore record, The Next Right Thing, led to the single "Lauralee" hitting #1 on Clear Channel's NEW! Discover & Uncover program as well as a Grammy nomination.
Seth has recently joined forces with ChildFund International, as an artist partner. His concerts from now throughout 2014, will help to showcase the work that this great organization does and encourage his fans to reach out to children in crisis. Seth believes strongly in using his voice to help shine a light; in the past he has worked with numerous organizations including ROCK THE VOTE, Autism Speaks, Musicians On Call, Feeding America and Coats For Kids. He has become increasingly comfortable expressing his social beliefs, both onstage and off. In 2012 he took home Best Social Action Song for his track "The Next Right Thing" at the 11thAnnual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win.
Seth's third album on MPress Records, Things I Should Let You Know is steeped in all the most gorgeous aspects of Americana, folk, blues, pop and soul with each of the 13 tracks it encompasses telling its own story, weaving tales of love, pain and epic self-realization from a young man coming into his own, all wrapped in sweeping melodies and striking vocals. USA Today stated that his "exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel" and featured the track "Man I Used To Be" as their "Song of the Week" in January.
