“Singer with an exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.” ~ USA TODAY. “The next generation is alive and well” ~ Livingston Taylor. Seth Glier recorded his new album, Birds, in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roost just outside those windows, on the roof of the converted mill building where he lives and they became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album. “I felt a tremendous amount of comfort talking to the birds” he says “I’d check in with them regularly to see how they thought things were going so far.” Birds is steeped in conflict and contradiction; there’s grief and loss, but also strength and resilience; doubt and dismay, but also a sense of optimism as Glier confronts heavy topics and wrestles them into the daylight. “...breathtakingly beautiful, immersed in fragile introspection and an intimacy that penetrates every niche and nuance.”~M Music & Musicians Magazine. Seth Glier on Joe Nerney: “One of my greatest teachers in recent years is my traveling companion Joe Nerney. Joe plays saxophone on tour with me. He’s 62 years old and has been blind since he was 3 days old . . . ” www.sethglier.com
