Seth Glier in Concert at Baldwin's Station
Thursday, July 19th
Tickets $12.00 – Showtime 8:00 pm
2012 Grammie nominee – MPress recording artist Seth Glier will grab you...if not with his powerful falsetto or his melodic prowess, then with what Performer Magazine calls his "intoxicating groove." The 23-year-old singer, pianist and guitarist – who abandoned studies at The Berklee College of Music after one year because he "decided I should be playing for people and not for grades" – aims straight for the gut and has quickly established himself on the national scene performing over 250 shows a year. In 2010, Glier shared stages with such diverse artists as James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe, and Edwin McCain. He has appeared as a mainstage artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (NY), (where he sold out of all his CD’s) and the Kerrville Folk Festival (TX). USA Today recently compared Seth to Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel and recommended his track "Lauralee" on their "Listen Up Playlist" (Feb 2011). The only musical member of his family, Seth was raised on the music of Joni Mitchell, Martin Sexton and Randy Newman, but considers his brother to be his greatest influence. "My brother is autistic and non-verbal. I learned to communicate with words better once I realized how to communicate to someone without them." Maybe the term "old soul" has meaning after all… "The greatest songwriting since Billy Joel" ~ Livingston Taylor.
While most kids were playing cops and robbers, Ryan Hommel was playing Elvis. Now 23, while most of his peers are just graduating college and attempting to find their footing in the workforce, Hommel is already a touring veteran and multi-faceted producer. His unique ability as a sideman and producer to authentically and emotionally support a song, no matter the genre, is a skill acquired by "many years of practiced restraint and patience in music," says Hommel. "My allegiance is to the song, and that's the most liberating and challenging part of what I do." Coming into his own as a solo artist and songwriter, Hommel is now hard at work on his debut record - something that puts him in the "artist" chair for the first time. "It sort of makes me wish I could still get away with dressing up like Elvis 20 years later!"
