New music, steeped in conflict and contradictions
A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 live performances annually, Seth Glier has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals. He’s shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams, and he's for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar. USA Today says his "exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel." Seth is adept at both personal acoustic songs and big pop melodies, and his latest album, "Birds," ranges from introspective to political in songs that, Seth says, " are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place that is all the more magical for it."
Michigan singer-songwriter Amy Petty will open the show. Amy Petty’s sound and songwriting is a compelling, complex and original soundscape that weaves a lush tapestry of folk, pop, rock and blues ballad. Art, mystery, and spirituality influence and infuse her poignant, evocative and sensual songs. These sonic canvases showcase the heartfelt emotion behind her lyrics and provide a foundation over which her voice and choral harmonies soar.
