What Not Saying Says | Seth Glier | TEDxVail
Gratitude is not a state of peace for arrival, it is a bitter battle for balance and reason. Seth Glier explains how chaos and confusion can transform into tools and talent that shape who we are.
Seth Glier attended Berklee College of Music for a year before dropping out to be able to tour full-time. He wanted to make music for people not grades.
Since then, he has averaged over 200 shows a year, and shared stages with artists such as James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe, Edwin McCain and Ani DiFranco. He’s been compared to Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.
If I Could Change One Thing, his fourth album is a successful move into mainstream pop.
Glier’s 2011 album, The Next Right Thing, for which he recorded his own vocals in his parents’ basement was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 2011, he took home Best Love Song for his track “Naia” at the 10th Annual Independent Music Awards. In 2012, “Next Right Thing” won Best Social Action Song at the Independent Music Awards.
Glier is an outspoken advocate for autism awareness. His song “Love Is A Language” was inspired by his nonverbal autistic brother.
