"Seth Avett Sings Greg Brown"
"Seth Avett Sings Greg Brown" is a 10-track tribute to songwriting hero and revered contemporary folk artist, Greg Brown. Seth transcribed, interpreted and dove deep into the repertoire of the songwriting legend who's been one of his musical guiding lights since the age of fifteen. Recorded in hotels across the country while on tour, the record captures the spirit, sincerity and beloved characters that populate Brown's best songs.
Seth says, "When I heard Greg Brown's music, it opened the door to a world of songwriting inspiration. Since then, I've been connecting to the arc of a man's life and his story. It's laid bare the simultaneous nature of the entire human experience in a way. With this record, I just hope listeners get an introduction to Greg Brown, and for anyone who can enjoy it, I hope it's a bridge into a place that otherwise perhaps they wouldn't have walked into.”
"Seth Avett Sings Greg Brown" will be released on LP, CD, and digitally on November 4. Click here to pre-order/pre-save.
