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 with USA Today stating that his “exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel."
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, a first for both himself and his New York based label, MPress Records.
As a national spokesperson for the Autism Speaks, an advocate or 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 11th Annual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win. For his 2013 Things I Should Let You Know CD Release tour, he teamed up with Autism Speaks and raised over $5,000 for the not-for-profit organization.
His 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. Things I Should Let You Know landed him his first Daytrotter session along with incredible reviews; M Music & Musicians praised his “his polished tenor vocals and natural affinity for creating shimmering, seductive melodies”, while Blurt Magazine exclaimed: “Glier’s greatest gift is for providing nuance, which is yet another reason why Things I Should Let You Know is nothing less than a genuine revelation.”
