Singer/Songwriter Seth Glier Set for NYC Appearance
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.
As a national spokesperson for Autism Speaks, an advocate for Musicians On Call, and with a ROCK THE VOTE Road Trip 2012 stop under his belt, Seth 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.
