Seth Glier celebrates new album "The Next Right Thing" this Saturday night at the Iron Horse. Fellow Berklee grad Liz Longley opens.

Seth Glier is a 22 year-old singer/songwriter/musician from Massachusetts who's quickly established himself on the national scene, performing over 200 shows a year. Reminiscent of Billy Joel and Elton John as a pianist, Glier nonetheless brings a contemporary edge to this self-produced, sophisticated collection, which will appeal to fans of David Gray, Gavin Degraw, and Brandon Flowers. 
Boston-based Glier was raised on the music of James Taylor, Randy Newman & Joni Mitchell. In 2010 he was invited to perform with his idol James Taylor, and shared stages with such diverse artists as Edwin McCain, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe and Livingston Taylor. Edwin McCain enjoyed Seth so much that he contributed backing vocals on "I Don't Need You" (THE NEXT RIGHT THING, 2011) and raved "If any of you are wondering what the future of music will look like, Seth is it." 
Since the release of MPRESS debut "The Trouble With People" in late 2009, singer-songwriter Seth Glier has learned a lot more about the impact of music on his community, his fans and himself. Coming into his own as a writer & performer, Glier is making a name for himself on the national scene, and has appeard as a mainstage artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and the Kerrville Folk Festival. Glier tours as a green artist, traveling in a hybrid vehicle, selling organic merchanidse and encourages his fans to live green. MPress Recoreds will be releasing "The Next Right Thing" next Tuesday, January 11th. Come out and celebrate Seth’s new album with us and pick up a copy at the sh!
