Biography:

Despite his relatively young age, MPress recording artist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 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, Edwin McCain, 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. 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." Building on the acclaim of his Grammy®-nominated sophomore album "The Next Right Thing", Glier’s subsequent record "Things I Should Let You Know" landed him his first Daytrotter session, was called “a genuine revelation” by Blurt Magazine, and was praised by M Music & Musicians Magazine for its “shimmering, seductive melodies”.

On his fourth album for MPress Records, "If I Could Change One Thing" (April 2015), Glier embraces a genuine modern-pop direction, marking a bold departure from his previous, more acoustic recordings and the beginning of an exciting relationship with Los Angeles-based producer/songwriter Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin, Dashboard Confessional). “Bill's energy, drive, and experience gave me a safe place to get creative and tap into a deeper part of my inner voice that has yet to be heard on any of my previous albums.” The album includes a gorgeous duet with American Idol’s Crystal Bowersox, as well as musical appearances by Pat Matera (Katy Perry), Garrison Starr (Mary Chapin Carpenter) and Daniel Rhine (Sara Bareilles). Featuring collaborations with renowned songwriter Trent Dabbs (“Girls Chase Boys” / Ingrid Michaelson), hit-maker Steve Seskin (Tim McGraw, Peter Paul and Mary, Peter Frampton), and Alex Wong (Delta Rae, Vienna Teng), "If I Could Change One Thing" merges genres seamlessly, with universal songs about falling in and out of love and social action that capture a songwriter and performer at the peak of his young abilities.

As an advocate for Musicians On Call and a national spokesperson for ChildFund International who has helped over 200 children find sponsors, Seth has become increasingly comfortable expressing his social beliefs, both onstage and off. 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 raised over $5,000 for the not-for-profit organization. The last two years have also garnered Seth musical placements on television (Lifetime and Bravo), as well as coveted slots on the Cayamo Cruise, at the Penang Jazz Festival in Malaysia, and as a performer for former House Speaker Eric Cantor.
