Despite his relatively young age, Grammy Nominated recording artist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 150 live performances annually, Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major 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 and powerful command of both piano and guitar. Seth’s new album Birds is steeped in conflict and contradictions. There’s grief and loss, but also strength and resilience; doubt and dismay, but also a sense of optimism as Glier confronts heavy topics and wrestles them into the daylight.
Performing with 62-year old veteran musician Joe Nerney on harmonica, saxophone and harmony vocals, Glier’s live show places his melodic AAA-contemporary pop under a blanket of roots & blues — a combination that creates a cognitive dissonance that satisfies fans of both commercial and non-commercial radio. His music has also caught the ears of fans, industry and critics alike, with USA Today stating that his “exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.”
More than just a musician, Seth is a national spokesperson for ChildFund International where he has helped over 200 children find sponsors. In 2016, he was chosen as a ChildFund Ambassador and traveled to Guatemala bringing music to remote areas and schools. He participated in the 2012 ROCK THE VOTE Road Trip, and took home Best Social Action Song for his track “The Next Right Thing” at the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win. For his 2013 Things I Should Let You Know release tour, he teamed up with Autism Speaks and helped raise thousands of dollars for the not-for-profit organization. The last two years have also garnered Seth musical placements on television, as well as coveted slots on the Cayamo Cruise.
