Summer roared into high gear with the announcement of Seth's eagerly awaited fifth album, Birds, along with a Pledge Music campaign supporting the release.
Birds is due August 25 with all Pledgers receiving the album four days before street date along with a host of fun goodies to choose from including this custom branded, compostable, bird house!
The campaign is already flying high with new incentives coming soon. Check it out and see what we've creatively put together for the ultimate fan experience: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/birds
Seth snagged two new exclusive video premieres to add to his Blurt Magazine audio premiere in April for "For What It's Worth."
The performance video for Seth's take on the Buffalo Springfield classic premiered on 7/14 with The Boot.
"I'm Still Looking", his nature-oriented performance video, debuted at Glide Magazine on 6/23 with strong social media support also driving viewers to the Pledge Music campaign page.
Glide even had this to say: "Glier sings with a quiet strength reminiscent of Damien Rice and Jeff Buckley roped with an altogether refreshing candidness rarely heard these days."
Look for more video content and premieres coming soon.
In July, Seth did a round of sessions in NYC with some terrific meet-n-greets and live performances!
At City Winery, his solo One On One set was captured that featured 3 new songs from Birds.
Next up was a session at Pledge Music, where Seth played an afternoon performance with his sideman Joe Nerney. The campaign is still going strong up until release date with Pledge promoting the session and Seth to their followers as additional support.
To round things out, Dunkin Donuts along with iHeartMedia took Seth and Joe in for a DDICL (Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee Lounge) session that blew everyone away. Media giant Mashable live-streamed a Q&A and full band performance on Facebook with all platforms generating a ton of excitement.
Lots of great content and even greater exposure!
We've had lots of great press so far, as we build up to street date.
Seth was the featured artist/song on Art Of The Song's "Song Of The Day" on July 18, which is heard weekly on 150 Public Radio stations.
Ear To The Ground chose Seth as one of their "Five Fantastic Troubadours You Need To Know", stating: "Sometimes an artist comes out of left field and really surprises us. I would say that’s the case with Seth Glier."
Additionally, NewsOK regarded Seth's performance at WoodyFest 2017 as one of their very favorite. "Glier and his blind sideman, Joe Nerney, sent chills through the seats of the Crystal Theatre."
Check out further press and support below.
Seth gave a raw, powerful performance during his private industry showcase @ club Berlin in NYC on July 24. The show included his new bass player, Rachel Coats, along with longtime side man Joe Nerney.
Packed into the steamy, underground space, everyone was treated to songs from Birds as well as unqiue renditions of tunes from his back catalog.
Highlights included a searing version of "Water On Fire" (with a fascinating back story), the intensely emotional "Like I Do", his bluesy take on "For What It's Worth" and finally a stomping show closer with "The Next Right Thing".
Even seasoned industry vets were left visibly impressed and waxed passionate about Seth's music, performance and band. Video from the show coming soon - go Team SG!
September 1st will see Seth kick off his headlining U.S. tour, lasting through December.
Tour press will follow the shows along with album release parties TBA.
Be sure to catch Seth if he's near you - please contact Tiina@MPress Records if you'd like to attend.
Don't miss this new lineup, which includes stand-up bassist Rachel Coats joining Seth and longtime sideman Joe Nerney.
This fall is sure to be filled with exciting music and more terrific press coming our way.
