San Francisco’s own jack-of-many-trades and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lael is gearing up to release his highly anticipated second solo album Bird Strings on September 28th. Seth lovingly alludes to his musical influences such as Punch Brothers with his intimate and playful work on guitar, mandolin and banjo. His lyrics are filled with imagery akin to Iron & Wine, yet we find him blazing his own path forward.
As the follow-up to his acclaimed 2011 record After the Hard Times, Bird Strings shows Lael further refining his long-admired songwriting and performing skills. With the help of famed producer/engineer McKay Garner (Red Hot Chili Peppers, J Dilla, Michael Buble), the new album expands into some new sonic territories all while maintaining the heartfelt stories and songs that are truly Seth Lael. Also featured on on the album are beautiful violin and viola performances by Rocio Marron. (Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Quetzal).
