"re: Songwriting"

"Please Let Me Go," with its unabashed sorrow and flute styled synths, sounds like Paul McCartney singing "Fool on the Hill," a haunting and beautiful example of Gingersol at their most expressive. The instrumentation shifts from stark to lush as the tune builds and releases tension like an epic movie." All Music Guide

"re: Songwriting"

"...categorize "Face Up Again" as the best song Teenage Fanclub never wrote and a surefire Top 10 hit..." - Fake Jazz

"re: Producing"

"Home-recorded by guitarist Seth Rothschild, Nothing Stops Moving has a crispness and atmosphere that seem rare these days, even for expensive studio projects. Guitars crunch and drums pop with clarity, colored by layers of reverberating Wurlitzers and spare synths." OC Weekly - OC Weekly

"re: Producing"

EASTERN, Gingersol
"There is a flying saucer in the background of track 2 on Gingersol's Eastern. Is it a flying saucer? No matter, it sounds pretty cool. Seth Rothschild guides the music on this record with some of the coolest guitaring heard in awhile." - Pop Culture Press

"re: Producing"

"His sessions are partly a lab experiment, where a bass tone is suddenly fuzzed out and gives a song a previously undiscovered personality, where an out-of-tune banjo becomes punk rock, where dishes and glasses literally sitting on the drying rack become percussion.

He knows when to use the sleigh bells, the xylophone, the backwards guitar. He knows when NOT to use the sleigh bells, the xylophone, the backwards guitar. Weed Patch's first album, Maybe The Brakes Will Fail, was made cut-and-paste style in a crappy warehouse setting over a year of weekends and evenings; our second album, Some Kinda Happy, was done with a fairly inexperienced band in a no-looking-back blitz spanning nine consecutive days and nights in a Los Angeles studio. Both couldn't be assembled more differently. Both are filled with craft and imagination and proudly successful creative efforts. I hear albums all the time where think, "This is good, but Seth could have made this better." He is still excited by making and listening to music. Seth's production work is enduring because it works on multiple levels -- it's dense with tasteful overdubs, sometimes working on a subconscious level --while it's rife with immediacy and the sense of spontaneity." NEAL WEISS, singer/songwriter of WEED PATCH

Feeling a bit camera shy


Seth Rothschild was a member of the critically acclaimed American indie rock band, Gingersol, on guitar/keyboards/vocals and as a songwriter. He also produced, recorded and mixed their 3 full-length releases.

Since Gingersol's conclusion, in 2005, he has begun to focus on producing other artists, while continuing to write songs. This year he's produced 3 records, thus far, having just completed the debut album, and an EP, by Solomon's Seal ( He continues to write and record with Scottish hurricane, Angela McCluskey (formerly of the Wild Colonials and of Telepop Musik.)

The sun-less isolation of studio work, growing collection of his broken pop songs and withdrawl from the Codeine of 'audience,' has coaxed him out of stage retirement, like an enthusiastic Andy Partridge. This summer he formed a new band, Quarry Hill, who's begun to do shows. A stint opening up for The Drams and a brief UK tour in September. Song demos are available for listening at and

This year he also scored and produced the songs in the indie documentary, Altered By Elvis; other 2006 filmwork includes 5 songs in the just-released Red Doors, and a song in the Maggie Gyllenhaal film, Sherry Baby.

"A Brian Wilson disciple, with an indie-rock soul. Seth' is enduring because it works on multiple levels: it's dense with tasteful overdubs, sometimes working on a subconscious level -- while it's rife with immediacy and the sense of spontaneity." NEAL WEISS, Yahoo Music

Seth has toured/done shows opening for, amongst others: Centro-matic, Luna, Lucero, The Long Winters, Pete Yorn, The Damnwells, Amy Correia, Gary Jules, The Smithereens, Minnie Driver, Slobberbone, Marah, The High Strung, The Drams, Kings of Leon, Mary Lou Lord, The Boggs, Calla, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Deers, Stars, Mendoza Line, The Essex Green, The Silos
