Seth Glier is an American singer-songwriter, pianist, and guitarist.

USA Today has called Glier "a singer with an exquisite tenor, echoing Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel in the piano pop style...".[1] With the release of his third album, Things I Should Let You Know, Glier according to The, "offers a revealing glimpse of his narrative on navigating the challenges of adulthood (and life) through the lens of the everyday person." [2]

Glier studied at PVPA in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

Glier, a Massachusetts native, abandoned studies at The Berklee College of Music after one year because he wanted to play for people not for grades. "He will grab you...if not with his powerful falsetto or his melodic prowess, then with what Performer Magazine calls his “intoxicating groove.” - Foster's Daily Democrat[3]

Throughout 2010 and 2011, Glier shared stages with such artists as James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe, Edwin McCain and Ani DiFranco. He has appeared as a mainstage artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (NY) and the Kerrville Folk Festival (TX).[4]

In 2011, he took home Best Love Song for his track Naia at the 10th Annual Independent Music Awards.[5] In 2012, "Next Right Thing" won Best Social Action Song at the Independent Music Awards.[6]

In addition to his music, Glier is a national spokesperson for the Autism awareness organization Autism Speaks. Glier told The, “My older brother, Jamie, is autistic. He’s 27 years old and non-verbal, so I have been exposed to autism and its effects on a family my whole life. I want to help spread awareness about autism, to raise the funds that help organizations like Autism Speaks, to make life an easier place for those living with autism, and above all, to celebrate and promote inclusion and equality for autistic individuals and their families.”[7]

Seth Glier is currently an artist partner with ChildFund International. Seth showcases ChildFund's work and encourages his fans to reach out to children in crisis by sponsoring a child (or multiple children) with the organization. [8]
