With a new setup of electronics and string accompaniment (Kelly Hallorin on violin and Rachel Coats on upright bass), Seth Glier amazed our Deepwells audience with some of his new material as well as some old favorites. His latest release, Birds, is steeped in conflict and contradiction; there’s grief and loss, but also strength and resilience; doubt and dismay, but also a sense of optimism as Glier confronts heavy topics and wrestles them into the daylight. The album began taking shape after Glier lost his brother, Jamie, who died in October 2015, and inspired a TED Talk performance that Glier gave in 2016. The songs range from personal to political, and are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place. He has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar.
