organization, running volunteer programs for 1,300 nonprofits, city
agencies, and public schools.

Set To Crisscross America Through The End Of The Year!
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 15 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.
