Grammy-nominated musician Seth Glier will sing tonight, January 15, at 8pm (Eastern Time) at his very own private online concert to raise money for autism. He will take song requests and answer questions with 100% of the proceeds going to Autism Speaks.
Seth is a singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist, praised by USA Today as one whose “exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.” He has shared the stage with James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, The Verve Pipe, Edwin McCain and Ani DiFranco.
He was nominated for the 2011 Grammy Awards Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for his release “The Next Right Thing”.
For his song “Naia”, he won the award for Best Love Song at the 2011 Annual Independent Music Awards.
Seth just kicked off his national tour, Things I Should Let You Know, on January 11th but it is not just about his music. He will tell each and every audience about his personal experience with autism:
“My older brother, Jamie is autistic. He’s 27 years old and non-verbal, so I have been exposed to autism and its effects on a family my whole life. I want this tour to help spread awareness about autism, to raise the funds that help organizations like Autism Speaks, to make life an easier place for those living with autism, and above all, to celebrate and promote inclusion and equality for autistic individuals and their families.”
Along with his testimony, he will ask for donations, with a goal of reaching $5,000 by the end of March. If he meets or exceeds that amount, he will perform a free live streaming concert on April 2, 2013, National Autism Awareness Day.
Every donor will receive an exclusive video that includes never-before-seen live performance footage of music from Things I Should Let You Know.
