Cultural diplomat for the U.S. State Department as well as Grammy-nominated and five-time Independent Music Award Winner Seth Glier is gearing up for a series of fall tour dates ahead of the release of his forthcoming album “Everything” – a collection of songs inviting the listener to imagine a future in which humans and the planet are realigned in mutual restoration.
With a commitment to using songwriting as a tool for positive change, Seth, who is also an avid mushroom forager, has set out on a path to channel nature’s longing for communion with humanity into songs about ice cores, uplift and erosion, tree rings, wooly mammoths and more. He’ll be bringing his world class act to Buffalo on Oct. 9 at Ninth Ward at Babeville.
