On his new album from MPress Records, If I Could Change One Thing, GRAMMY© nominee, singer, pianist and guitarist Seth Glier embraces a genuine modern-pop direction, marking a bold departure from his previous, more acoustic recordings and the beginning of an exciting relationship with Los Angeles-based producer/songwriter Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Dashboard Confessional). The album includes a gorgeous duet with American Idol’s Crystal Bowersox, as well as musical appearances by Pat Matera (Katy Perry) and Daniel Rhine (Sara Bareilles). Featuring collaborations with renowned songwriter Trent Dabbs (“Girls Chase Boys”, Ingrid Michaelson), hit- maker Steve Seskin (Tim McGraw, Peter Frampton), and Alex Wong (Delta Rae), 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 first track off his forthcoming release is titled "Love is a Language", Glier commented on the track, saying, “This song is really inspired by my non-verbal autistic brother, Jamie. ‘When nothing else can speak for you, love is a language we hang on to.’ I’ve learned a lot from him but one of the most important lessons he taught me is how to listen and recognizing a stranger’s humanity despite the outside package. It’s a raw emotion for me, one I haven’t written about before, which is why I wanted the video to try and match the intensity. We tried to capture the energy that Joe Nerney and I put into it each night onstage.”
