Seth Glier Announces New Album
Things I Should Let You Know

(MPress Records, January 29, 2013)

Set To Crisscross America Through The End Of The Year!

Seth Glier

Seth Glier is an old soul and never has that been more apparent than on his incredibly moving upcoming release, Things I Should Let You Know, set to hit via MPress Records on January 29. From beginning to end, 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.

With an average of 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 Awareness Foundation, 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 with Things I Should Let You Know taking on a significant political and social voice. Not surprisingly, when pressed for what song he is most proud of on the album, Seth chooses the Woody Guthrie-inspired “Plastic Soldiers” that sees him telling the story of a father and soldier, coming to terms with his choices in life and hoping to sway his son from following in his footsteps.

This record is a departure for Seth who for the first time opened himself up to co-writes and sat down with the likes of Marshall Altman, Livingston Taylor and Ellis Paul amongst others. The inspiration he found from these co-writes is obvious in the stories he tells in each individual track, co-written and otherwise. The album’s opener and title track is a stark confession accompanied by layered vocals and a hushed and haunting musical arrangement. One of the last songs composed for the album, it marks a brash departure from formula and sets the listener up for an expansive ride full of cinematic twists and turns. On the chilling and intimate “Too Hard To Hold The Moon”, Seth gets incredibly personal, dropping the character shield and revealing that the track ”is about my parents…about my mother standing by my father as he learns to live in sobriety.”

Everything comes full circle with the album’s powerful closer, “I Am Only As Loved As I Am Open”. Amidst a swirling drone of harmonium, pump organ and bowing strings, Seth Glier ascends into adulthood by delivering his most important collection of songs yet.
