SETH GLIER is a Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, a talented multi-instrumentalist, and a great collaborator.
Since 2016 Seth Glier and I have collaborated on a range of projects.
The first time I worked with Seth was at a community fundraising gala in Easthampton, MA. At the time, I was working on New City, and he wanted to learn about local history. Our conversation became the background for his historically grounded performance as host of the event. Since then, I have worked with Seth on everything from music videos to engagement photos.
JUSTICE FOR ALL
To accompany his song ‘Justice For All’, Seth asked me to produce a video to project during live performances. I dug through the (figurative) crates of YouTube and compiled/edited a series of archival and contemporary clips that complemented the themes of social justice and protest that drive the song.
When Uncle Bill was in the late stages of battling cancer, Seth commissioned me to film a performance of ‘When I Go Away’ with his uncle’s gospel group.
The performance was cathartic, the experience was transcendent, and I can only hope that my video captured a fraction of the beautiful reality. [LINK]
