      Seth Glier

      For 22-year-old Massachusetts native Seth Glier, The Next Right Thing isn’t just an album title – it’s a way of life. Forhis sophomore MPress Records release, the Berklee-educated singer/pianist set out to document the ways in which he– and the people he encounters on the road – attempts to do “the next right thing, as opposed to the next thing right.”Despite his relatively young age, Glier is a seasoned troubadour, traveling all over the United States and performingover 200 dates a year. In 2010 he opened for Edwin McCain and The Verve Pipe, appeared with his idol James Tay-lor and performed on main stages of the prestigious Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festivals, with rave reviews and aconstantly-expanding fan base following him every step of the way.The title track, which kicks off the album with a rousing chorus reminiscent of New Orleans-flavored gospel blues, setsthe thematic tone for what is to come, even as it stands alone musically. The chorus repeats the mantra, “Do the nextright thing or the next thing right.”The album was recorded in the spring of 2010 at The Carriage House studio in Stamford, CT, with additional overdubscompleted in Glier’s basement in Shelburne Falls, MA. Co-produced with Glier’s long-time collaborator, guitarist andbest friend Ryan Hommel, it was engineered by Brendan Muldowney, and mixed by John Shyloski (Stephen Kel-logg, Johnny Winter) and Grammy-winner Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello). After working with Glier, Killen com-mented: "Seth’s musical exuberance shines through his compositions regardless of the subject matter…his vocal deliv-ery compels your attention. Seth is naturally effervescent and fearless and his gift will surely reach the wider audience itdeserves."With the release of The Next Right Thing, Seth Glier hopes to continue to make as many personal connections as pos-sible with his music. He declares, “I am inspired, and I will inspire the person sitting next to me. Promise!”
