I'm a musician working on aligning the stars. There's nothing more powerful than connecting the right song, with the right person, at the right moment of vulnerability and inspiration.
If you were not doing music, you would be…
… A chef. I love cooking and the process is so similar to writing music, in my opinion. It's all about respecting your ingredients.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I'm really into fishing. Fresh water or salt water. My dad use to take me as a kid and its still something I do often to clear my head.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
'Love Is a language' was one of the hardest songs to write because it's so honest to my own story. I had been working on that song for four years and originally I was disguising my story into the lives of other character that I would make up. About two years ago I played it for my friend Ellis Paul in my kitchen over breakfast. At that time in the construction the first verse (about my brother's autism) was in the second verse position and Ellis said, 'Start there and re-write everything else to be your story.' I was writing like a writer instead of an artist. It was a big lesson for me to learn.
Finish this sentence: Seth Glier is the artist that…
… Remembers that it's nice to be important but it's important to be nice.
