Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Seth Glier has released a brand new music video which is inspired by the universal language of love. The personal track, entitled “Love is a Language,” is the lead single off of his upcoming album If I Could Change One Thing, due for release this April.
The video gives fans a first-hand look at what it's like to perform live in the studio. Glier could be considered a one-man band as he sings, strums his guitar and provides a variety of percussion elements, but veteran musician Joe Nerney is on hand to supply some soulful harmonica accompaniment. Glier's vocals are sweet and expressive as he sings the heartfelt and emotional lyrics.
Glier gave insight into the meaning of 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.” He continues, “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.”
Besides spreading the message of autism awareness through song, Glier also supports Musicians On Call and is a LIVE! artist partner for ChildFund International. Music truly serves as a universal means of communication and Glier is using his folk roots and pop sensibilities to create engaging songs that urge listeners to take action and make the world a more beautiful place.
If I Could Change One Thing by Seth Glier is set to be released on April 7. Check out the video for “Love is a Language” above and look below for a full list of Glier's tour dates.
