-- New York, NY - Seth Glier's critically acclaimed work The Next Right Thing (MPress Records, 2011) has been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. This is a fantastic honor and first-time nomination for the rising artist/producer, who recorded all of his vocals himself at his own project studio. Engineering team members for The Next Right Thing include Kevin Killen (five-time GRAMMY® winner, four-time nominee), Brendan Muldowney (first time nominee) and John Shyloski (one-time nominee). The 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 12, 2012.
After learning of his nomination on Twitter, Glier said "I know its cliché to say that it's an honor just to be nominated, but it really is an HONOR! This nomination has everything to do with the fabulous team I work with in the studio, on the road and at my record label." The Next Right Thing was released Jan 11, 2011 on MPress Records. It was recorded at The Carriage House studio in Stamford, CT, with additional overdubs completed in Glier's basement in Shelburne Falls, MA. Co-produced with Glier's long-time collaborator, Ryan Hommel, it was recorded by Brendan Muldowney, and mixed by GRAMMY® winner Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello) as well as by John Shyloski (Beyoncé, Johnny Winter), who also mastered the album.
This 2011 GRAMMY® nomination tops off great accomplishments and highlights for Glier this year, including a 2011 Independent Music Award. The Next Right Thing, his sophomore release for MPress Records, has received accolades and comparisons to Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel by USA Today, and was added to over 150 radio stations. The track"Lauralee"
was recommended by USA Today in their "Listen Up Playlist" (Feb 2011) and was propelled to #1 on Clear Channel's NEW! Discover & Uncover. His music video for the second single "Walk Katie Home" premiered on USA Today (July 2011) and he toured with talents like Edwin McCain, Ani DiFranco and Martin Sexton.
2012 will prove to be another exciting year for Glier. He begins pre-production for his third MPress release in January, and will be performing at the 35th Annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival with Ryan Adams, Emmylou Harris and more; in addition, Glier will make his West Coast debut touring with folk icon Ani DiFranco in March
