New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Grammy® nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Glier has re-signed to a multi-album deal with NYC-based independent label, MPress Records. Glier, who signed with management firm Invasion Group just last year, heads out on the road again with American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox this August in the Northeast.
MPress Records releases albums by Independent Music Award Winners Rachael Sage, Seth Glier and Melissa Ferrick, and also produces the New Arrivals charity compilation and hosts showcases at such industry events as SXSW, CMJ and Midem. MPress has also just welcomed A Fragile Tomorrow to its roster, and is delighted to be continuing its relationship with Glier.
Founder and label owner Rachael Sage enthuses “From his God-given talent, to his natural empathy and charitable tendencies, working with Seth has literally been a dream come true. We are so thrilled that he will be continuing to work with MPress! It has been an honor to help bring his incredibly rich catalog into the marketplace, and I know his next album is going to simply blow everyone away.”
Glier, who has released three albums with the label – including 2011’s Grammy® nominated The Next Right Thing and 2013’s critically acclaimed Things I Should Let You Know – is currently finishing up new songs and will head into the studio this Fall with producer Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Dashboard Confessional). Before then, he will be hitting the road with American Idol’s Crystal Bowersox for a handful of dates in the Northeast, and performing some of the new songs that will appear on his next MPress release in 2015.
