"Show Review: Seth Freeman at Summer Nights on the Boulevard 7/23/09"

Seth Freeman’s CD release party coincided with Summer Nights on the Boulevard, an evening of music, dance, and art, in Atwater Village, CA. Backed by a band consisting of producer Michael Eisenstein on guitar (Letters to Cleo), Michael Wagner on bass (Mon Cul), and Erez Ginat on drums, Seth delivered his indie rock/powerpop set to a neighborhood crowd equal or greater in size to most audiences in Hollywood clubs. Seth’s stage presence was friendly, relaxed, and confident, creating a likeability factor which made having empathy for what he was singing about inviting and easy. My favorite song of the set, Speechless, was re-started 3 times for water breaks. It takes a certain talent to be able to break into a song for thirst and get away with it, yet somehow Seth does just that, giving the audience the feeling that we’re all just hanging out together. Seth’s CD, entitled “One and Only Maybe,” is a six song EP full of heartache, heartbreak, and blissful love. Look for it on iTunes within a few weeks. For more info go to Seth’s MySpace page.

Cheers,

"Can You See It If You Open Your Heart?"

http://weblog.xanga.com/CareyGLY/683632596/can-you-see-it-if-you-open-your-heart.html

This week, Americans are preparing to celebrate their Thanksgiving holiday. This year, we have much to be thankful for; a new president, a renewed sense of hope for our tattered worldwide reputation and the fact that Sarah Palin is finally back in her kitchen in Alaska where she belongs. (Click here for David Letterman's Top 10 Palin excuses for the unfortunate interview she gave after "pardoning" a Thanksgiving turkey while the guy behind her feeds LIVE turkeys into a GRINDER!)

This Thanksgiving, I was lucky enough to participate in a truly memorable and worthwhile project. My friend Seth, owner of Garbo & Ruby, wrote a song about peace on earth and shot a truly cross cultural video that I hope you will all enjoy. Hannah steals the show at about 32 seconds, and I make my first cheesy appearance at 39 seconds. Take a look, but be warned, the song will stick in your head!

In Seth's own words:

On Thanksgiving 2007, I asked myself for what was I truly thankful. I have many people, experiences, and things to be grateful about in my life, and so I gave a heartfelt thank you to the universe for all of them. Then I closed my eyes and imagined what I would really like to give thanks for, and I had a vision of the world and the human race as it should be, helping each other instead of hindering, loving each other instead of fighting, giving to each other instead of hoarding, and it felt amazing. My whole body and mind relaxed and a smile came to my face. I think I even laughed.

I know that I'm not alone with this experience. I know that there are many people out there doing amazing work every day to make this world the best place it can be. There are countless others who, while they may not outwardly appear to be "peaceniks," are doing their part in their own way, be it through making contributions to the charity of their choice, performing random acts of kindness, meditation, prayer, or even just taking a breath before they react in anger. Anyhow, in the midst of these thoughts and feelings, a simple song of peace literally fell out of me.

I had a vision that night of people all over the world hearing and singing this song of peace, and this being a small piece of the tipping point where the majority of the population of the world becomes fed up with conflict, hunger, and injustice and finally leaves the governments of the world no choice but to disarm and refocus their efforts on the greater good. Yes, we singer-songwriters are prone to megalomania. :) But no matter what happens, this song will be out there. Even if it changes only one person's mind, that will be success.

So this year, before another year goes by, I've recorded the song with a large group of singers. All the proceeds from the song will go to benefit peace on Earth by way of Peace Partnership International.

Aside from the charitable contributions that people make by buying the song, getting the song into the public consciousness will also have a great positive effect, because these kinds of ideas are infectious. I know I always think twice after reading those "random acts of kindness" bumper stickers ;)

Peace!
Seth

The parts I'm in were filmed on the roof of the Hotel Careyfonia. Here are some "Behind the Scenes" photos that might just show up on VH-1's "Behind the Music" someday after I come out of rehab for the 5th time following my meteoric rise to the top of the Hollywood elite in this video:

And if you'd like to see some short "making of" videos, they're on the song's Facebook page (click now and become a fan). If you're not on Facebook, you can watch the videos here and here. If you like the song, please purchase it for .99 cents. All the proceeds go to Peace Partnership International. I'll do another post as soon as it's available on iTunes, because I know that's how a lot of people prefer to purchase their music. Thanks to Seth and his inspiration. I wish you all a peaceful Thanksgiving wherever you may be.

If you'd like to help spread the word, please recommend this post. It's for a good cause!

Bio

In his younger days, Seth Freeman fantasized about hopping a freight train to nowhere with nothing but a guitar and a ruck sack. This vision stuck with him as he immersed himself in the Boston music scene. He put together the band Little John, which went on to critical acclaim and major label success.

Seth went on to write music for film, television, and video games. He became adept at writing to picture in a variety of styles. He also built out Buddha Dog Studios and began producing other artists, including David Forest, Jeff Lorch, and songs with Gaby Moreno, Kay Hanley, Susan Howard, and Melissa Lewis.

Throughout that time, his passion for writing and singing songs has remained. Regardless of how much time he puts into writing and producing music for others, he easily falls back into the comfort of his own material.

His latest record, produced by Michael Eisenstein (Letters to Cleo), boasts Blair Sinta on drums, USA Mike on bass and additional guitars, and Peter Adams on keys. These seasoned professionals form a core band that locks into the songs' inner groove.

One and Only Maybe, the first Seth Freeman record since his Little John days, is "full of heartache, heartbreak, and blissful love" (residentband.tv). This just may be the record that conjures up your long forgotten childhood visions of hopping a boxcar to anywhere.
