The Massachusetts-born Seth Glier is a musician who’s no stranger to the road, with a regular touring schedule that usually finds him playing close to 250 shows a year. But when lockdown locked into place in 2020, Glier found himself where we all found ourselves—at home. Watching the chaos outside while fostering stillness inside was the foundational element to the creation of his sixth album The Coronation. Built on the idea of reconciliation and repair, The Coronation is a stirring song cycle that’s filled with poetic precision and melodic smarts. With subject matter ranging from the death of John Prine to systemic inequality to a plea for gun control, The Coronation is a powerful and moving entry in Glier’s already winning discography. The Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter who has been praised by everyone from Paste to NPR, has shared the stage with folks like James Taylor, Mark Knopfler and Ani DiFranco The winner of five Independent Music Awards, Glier’s 2016 TedX talk focuses on the gifts and challenges of caregiving for a family member. An outspoken advocate for Autism Speaks, Glier is a musician, an activist and a a very impressive human being. In this chat Seth talks to Alex about what was life like OFF the road, why his brain functions well in chaos and how a little home construction ended up being unexpectedly moving.
