WE @AH: Meet American Musicians Seth Glier Trio

Come to a very special WE@AH and meet our unique guest - young American singer-songwriter Seth Glier

Despite his relatively young age, MPress recording artist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 live performances annually, Seth 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 has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar. His music has also caught the ears of fans, industry and critics alike, with USA Today stating that his “exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.” Building on the acclaim of his Grammy®-nominated sophomore album The Next Right Thing, Glier’s subsequent record Things I Should Let You Know landed him his first Daytrotter session, was called “a genuine revelation” by Blurt Magazine, and was praised by M Music & Musicians Magazine for its “shimmering, seductive melodies”.

Seth Glier comes to Ukraine as a part of American Music Abroad, a program that the Association of American Voices is proud to administer on behalf of the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Joey Nerney
Seth Glier on Joey "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. Joe “sees” more joy in one day than many do in their entire lives. The connection we have with each other on and off stage is one of compassion, respect, and it helps that we both have the sense of humor of a twelve year old. I’m so grateful that I get to watch him fulfill his life’s purpose night after night, to play music and show the world that we have more similarities than differences. He’s a man that embodies the philosophy of “it’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice". 

Ryan Hommel
“I’ve always felt very natural in my supportive role as a sideman, be it stage left or stage right and back a few feet. I recently found out that front and center and even all alone feels just as natural and satisfying,” says multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer Ryan Hommel. Rooted deeply in early Elvis Presley and Stevie Wonder, he started at age 3 by soaking in the music and absorbing the feelings it could transmit before eventually learning its technical aspects. “
