"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.
In the short time since her graduation from Boston's renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. In the past two years, Liz has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. New England named her the 2011 Female Performer of the Year, the Washington Post declared that Liz is "destined for a larger audience" and Dig Boston called her "a rising acoustic sensation." Even John Mayer is a fan, calling her music "gorgeous, simply gorgeous." A Philadelphia native, Liz recently made the move to Nashville, Tennessee where she has quickly made her presence known throughout Music City. In addition to writing more than forty songs with some of the best songwriters in the business, Liz has also managed to keep up her seemingly never-ending touring schedule, playing over one hundred shows in the last year - all without the help of a record label or booking agent. While Liz frequently supports the likes of Shawn Colvin, Amos Lee, Paula Cole, Nanci Griffith, Livingston Taylor, Lori McKenna and Colin Hay, something remarkable has begun to happen - audiences are emerging from these shows as fast fans of Liz's music as well. An engaging performer with an effortless stage presence, Liz has broken advance ticket and merchandise sales records at numerous venues across the country. Most recently, Liz's music has taken center stage on a national level with numerous television placements and radio airplay. ABC's critically acclaimed series NY Med featured Liz's music throughout the first season, and the 2012 season finale of Lifetime's Army Wives displayed her towering vocals in an epic grand finale song, "This Is Not the End." Executives at SiriusXM caught wind of her captivating cover of Van Morrison's hit "Moondance" and added it into regular rotation, along with her award-winning original song, "When You've Got Trouble." After an impressive response from listeners, Liz was invited to perform live in the SiriusXM studios in New York City and was named one of their Coffee House Discoveries of 2011. Following the success of her previous release, Hot Loose Wire, and an impressive crowd-funding campaign this past summer, Liz recently returned to the studio where she recorded her fourth full-length album which is scheduled to be released this spring.
