"This is a young man with a distinctive voice, a falsetto that sticks to your ribs, and can he write songs!" - Blogcritics.com
For 23-year-old Massachusetts native SETH GLIER, The Next Right Thing isn't just an album title – it's a way of life. For his sophomore MPress Records release, the Berklee-educated singer/pianist set out to document the ways in which he – and the people he encounters on the road – attempts to do "the next right thing, as opposed to the next thing right." Despite his relatively young age, Glier is a seasoned troubadour, traveling all over the United States and performing over 200 dates a year. In 2010 he opened for Edwin McCain, The Verve Pipe, Livingston Taylor and Mark Knopfler, appeared with his idol James Taylor and performed on main stages of the prestigious Falcon Ridge, CMJ and Kerrville Folk Festivals, with rave reviews and a constantly-expanding fan base following him every step of the way. Seth is naturally effervescent, and with a vocal delivery that compels your attention, his gift will surely reach the wider audience it deserves. With the release of The Next Right Thing, Seth Glier hopes to continue to make as many personal connections as possible with his music. He declares, "I am inspired, and I will inspire the person sitting next to me. Promise!"
The Next Right Thing (MPress Records, 2011) has been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. This is a fantastic honor and first-time nomination for the rising artist/producer, who recorded all of his vocals himself at his ownproject studio. The 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 12, 2012.
I don't have a real job, I write songs for a living. My mother calls and wishes I'd move back home to NY. My dad leaves 5 minute long voicemails about how proud he is of me and usually asks (for the 1,000th time) how to get on Youtube to see my latest work. Yes, it's complicated and there's a lot to share. But I write songs, so I will usually keep our interactions to around 3 minutes and thirty seconds or less.
