MPress Records was founded in 1996 by award-winning art-pop chanteuse/keyboardist Rachael Sage, who has released seven albums of ”wildly expressive, moody, edgy folk” (PASTE) on the New York-based imprint. Sage, who plays over 150 dates a year throughout the U.S. and Europe, is a John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize Winner (Rock) and received the 2005 Independent Music Award for Best Singer-Songwriter. MPress Records’ latest project is a compilation series entitled ”New Arrivals” for more information visit: http://www.newarrivalscd.com AND http://www.mpressrecords.com.
MPress is proud to announce our first artist signing: 20-year-old pianist/singer-songwriter Seth Glier. Seth hails from Western Massachusetts, and was recently featured in the Boston Globe for his 100% Fan Funded Tour. As Rachael Sage recalls, ”Seth opened for me last fall, and within 30 seconds I knew we had to sign him. His music and voice are so far beyond his years you can’t help but listen. The world needs to know about Seth and his music, and it’s incredibly exciting to help make that happen.”
We will nationally re-release his latest album The Trouble With People, with several tracks re-mixed by Kevin Killen, this fall. New material is expected in 2010. Seth will also join Rachael at the Edinburgh Fringe in August, as part of her ”Sequins & Shpiel” show. A seasoned touring artist who has already shared stages with Martin Sexton, John Mayer and Erin McKeown, he will continue to tour the East Coast through the summer, and will kick off his official The Trouble With People re-release tour in the fall.
