Seth’s newly-released album entitled Bird Strings continues where his previous highly-acclaimed record After the Hard Times left off and explores new sonic landscapes. Here we find Seth’s personal angle on subjects like the San Francisco housing crisis and artist displacement, what it’s like to be an American, and navigating deep personal relationships. Bird Strings was created with the help of veteran producer/engineer McKay Garner (Red Hot Chili Peppers, J Dilla, Michael Buble) and features beautiful violin and viola performances by Rocio Marron (Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Quetzal). The record is up for consideration for the 58th Grammy Awards.
