Hows my banjo playing/recording sound?

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

I just finished my second album.

This is the most banjo focused track on the record. I'm interested in anyone that likes newgrass music feedback. Thanks!

Hailing from the sunny California shores of San Francisco, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lael has firmly established himself as a must-hear artist. With his distinctive combination of alternative folk, experimental pop, and a dab of Americana, Seth’s music is winning adoring fans from around the globe. With his equally intimate and playful work on the guitar, mandolin and banjo reminiscent of Punch Brothers, and lyrical imagery akin to Iron & Wine, Seth lovingly alludes to his musical influences all while blazing his own path forward. Seth grew up as one of ten children in a very musical family. His vast experiences playing in countless dive bars with punk, rock, bluegrass and jazz bands as well as performing in high school musicals or composing film scores has made him the seasoned musician he is today. Seth also juggled a vast array of jobs while focusing on music after the whistle blew. The hats he wore included those of a banker, gas station attendant, roofer, baker, waiter, bricklayer, car washer, and flower delivery man! All of these adventures have shone through in every aspect of his musical work. Lael is currently gearing up to support the release of his new album Bird Strings, the successfully crowd-funded follow-up to his acclaimed 2011 record After the Hard Times. A heartfelt collaboration with famed producer/engineer McKay Garner (Red Hot Chili Peppers, J Dilla, Michael Buble), the new record beautifully reveals Seth’s continuing growth as a musician while expanding into previously uncharted territories. Also featured on the album are beautiful violin and viola performances by Rocio Marron (Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Quetzal). Seth has secured a batch of west coast tour dates for October, so be sure to catch him if you are in the area! With a host of infectious new songs ready to perform for the masses, Seth Lael is set to make big waves through the rest of 2015 and beyond!
