In his early 20s, Massachusetts native singer-songwriter Seth Glier was recognized on the national stage with a Grammy-nomination for an album he recorded himself, in his parents’ basement. Boothbay Harbor Opera House audiences had been treated to the music of this young mega-talent prior to his Grammy nod and have been following him ever since his Maine debut alongside Livingston Taylor. On Saturday, Sept. 28, Seth Glier returns to Maine, along with his newest music, to once again play at the historic Opera House.
The accolades for Glier have come in from across the country. “Grammy-nominated musician Seth Glier continues to gain momentum” says Paste Magazine, while USA Today calls him a “Singer with an exquisite tenor echoing Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.”
Blurt Magazine say his “material sounds like nothing if not classics in waiting…it’s the essence of perfection.”
The Huffington Post reports that “ ... this young blood wields an old-soul air…Discover a new generation of great with Seth Glier’s ‘The Next Right Thing.’”
Of his work, Glier says, “The practice of writing songs has been something between a mentor and a mantra for me. It’s work that continues to find new ways to work on me. I’m a grateful servant.”
He has shared the stage with artists including Ani DiFranco, Marc Cohn, James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe, and others. The owners of Boothbay Harbor Framers and Gallery, Susan Brackett and Bob Eisele, are so impressed with Glier’s music that they are generously sponsoring this year’s performance.
