SIRIUS XM's THE VILLAGE
ADDS TWO SONGS!
SiriusXM's hugely popular channel The Village with Mary Twohy added not one, but TWO of Seth's songs this week!
"For What It's Worth" and "Justice For All" were added to the channel's lineup that also included other artists such as Iron & Wine, Jake Bugg and Shakey Graves. They are extremely selective when curating, so to have two tracks selected is quite a feat.

"SUNSHINE" VIDEO SHINING &
DAYTROTTER SESSION TRENDING
Seth's new video for "Sunshine" - a sudsy, ethereal trip through a car wash - is EXPLODING with more than 25,000 views accumulated in less than three weeks!
The video premiered on 8/23 with Relix Magazine & had lots of great press that followed. Ads are currently running across social media platforms and various outlets as well.
And for the second time this year, Seth is one of Daytrotter's Top Trending Sessions! His session was highlighted in their daily newsletter and on their website homepage. Seth heads back to Daytrotter in October to record a brand new session, so we're looking forward to more great content to share.
PLEDGE / NOISETRADE MIXTAPE & PLEDGE MUSIC CAMPAIGN
Pledge Music and their partner Noisetrade worked together to create a "Summer Mixtape" of music from artists that they personally chose.
Seth's song "Hasn't Hit Me Yet" was included on the indie sampler, which went out to both companies' 1.4 million followers in their August 31st newsletter!
For Seth's Pedge Music campaign, Pledge really stepped up their promotion in August. They posted all 3 of his Pledge Music Sessions videos on their social media platforms at separate intervals as well as re-tweeted or shared about Seth regularly.
Seth also made a funny, special video for his pledgers, which featured him trying to put together the promotional bird house that was created for his campaign. Pledge loved it and shared with their 150,000 social media fans! Watch it here for a good bit of funny :)
With dozens of press hits over the summer and reviews starting to come in, Seth is flying high on everyone's radar.
Baeble Music chose "Sunshine" as both song (and video) of the day on 8/30 and stated, "Seth Glier is tapping his inner Sufjan Stevens."
More high praise came from Paste Magazine about Birds: "...his lush arrangements are…what makes Birds soar beyond momentary ear candy and into the realms of mystique"
