Seth Glier and Hannah Hoffman at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery

Posted

BRATTLEBORO >> Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present contemporary folk and pop singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Seth Glier and Hannah Hoffman at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Singer, songwriter, pianist, guitarist, producer and Grammy nominee Seth Glier is renowned for his fearless vocal delivery, musical exuberance and seasoned songwriting beyond his years. A troubadour in every sense of the word who averages over 250 live performances annually, 26 year-old Glier has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals. He's shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams, and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar.

On his fourth album for MPress Records, "If I Could Change One Thing," Glier embraces a genuine modern-pop direction, marking a bold departure from his previous, more acoustic recordings. Featuring collaborations with renowned songwriter Trent Dabbs, hit-maker Steve Seskin and Alex Wong, "If I Could Change One Thing" merges genres seamlessly, with universal songs about falling in and out of love and social action that capture a songwriter and performer at the peak of his young abilities. The last two years have also garnered Seth musical placements on television (Lifetime and Bravo), as well as coveted slots on the Cayamo Cruise, at the Penang Jazz Festival in Malaysia and as a performer for former House Speaker Eric Cantor.

As a national spokesperson for the Autism Awareness Foundation and an advocate of Musicians On Call, and with a ROCK THE VOTE Road Trip 2012 stop under his belt, Seth has become increasingly comfortable expressing his social beliefs, both onstage and off. In 2012 he took home Best Social Action Song for his track "The Next Right Thing" at the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win.

A soulful soprano, Hannah Hoffman is a versatile performer who engages her audience with dynamic performances not only of her own composing but an eclectic mix of standards she commands as her own.
