Rochester, NY- Seth Faergolzia, one of anti-folk’s most fearless singer-songwriters, will hit the road this Winter with a new album from his latest project, Multibird. This special quartet tour will have performances in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Belgium and Switzerland.

 

Formed in 2015, critics have hailed Multibird’s sound as “tender and calm” (New York Press) and “twisted and distorted” (Relix). Where Faergolzia’s critically-acclaimed avant-rock outfit, Dufus, shook up New York City in the ‘00s with folk-punk gymnastics and Captain Beefheart-esque abrasion, Multibird creates the communal amiability of a warm gathering around the hearth.

 

A Multibird show can lead almost anywhere, from raucous foot-stompers to songs soft, heartwarming and careful, to an a cappella quartet, all the while anchored by Faergolzia’s enigmatic voice and captivating presence. Outré as the four-piece may get, fans of Mumford and Sons will still feel right at home.

 

The Multibird quartet consists of Seth Faergolzia (acoustic guitar, loops and vocals), Shaun Jones (electric guitar, vocals, and percussion), Emily DiPaola (trumpet, drums, vocals) and Luke Cornwell (bass, drums, vocals). These versatile and powerful musicians bring a huge sound despite the small ensemble.

 

Faergolzia has played stages in over 20 countries touring for over 20 years and has made appearances at the End of the Road Festival, Greenman, Rockaway Beach, Zappanale, Hunsrück Open Air, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Burning Woman, One of a Million Festival, Out in the Kraut, Fringe Festival, etc. In addition, Faergolzia’s projects have played support for such acts as Animal Collective, the Yeahyeahyeahs, Kool Keith, Dan Deacon, Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches, Langhorne Slim, Frank Turner and loads more.

 

Please get in touch at [email protected] for guest passes, interviews and for more information.

 

Tour updates will be announced on the band’s website, https://faergolzia.com/ along with music videos and excerpts from Faergolzia’s upcoming puppet opera movie.

Happy Mother’s Day, here’s a tiny song!

Wrote this tonight, just a short little tune, what I think it must feel like to be a mother… a tribute to all the amazing moms out there!

Shot it in my kitchen… one of my favorite spots to play music at night.

Hope you guys are all doing good! I’ve been doing a massive purge of stuff. Getting rid of tons of possessions, selling it or throwing it out. Feels good to lighten the load. I think I’ll just keep doing it till I lift off the ground!

So much love,

Sethy

Grande Sceme one shot video

Well, well, well, here we are again, me talking to you from the lofty position of my attic studio space.  It’s snowing outside, and I’ve got a rare moment alone in the house with no children, no partner, no house guests, no friends.  I’ve always loved solitude, ever since I was a little kid.  If I don’t get it, I get really crabby.  Last week, last weekend was a busy one in which I had my first art show in many years (it is hung and looks great over at Photo City Improv), and at that show my band Multibird performed.  The next day I flew to Boston for a video shoot with my friend Emilie Stark-Menneg who is an incredible artist I’ve been lucky to know for 10 years or so now.  She and her partner John Bisbee, an excellent sculptor put together a crazy plan (involving a bunch of goats and artists) and had me and about 10 other people trek out to a farm in a town I don’t even know the name of…  It features my song, Holy Mother, which is from the #100songs project.  On the night after this video shoot, I played a small house show in Boston then got on a plane back home the next day.

I was quite inspired by this video shoot, realizing magic can really happen in a short span of time if the energy is right.  We shot this video the night after I got back from the trip.  None of my bandmates knew the song previous to this night, and we threw it all together with this loose script I wrote, pressed record and watched it unfold.  I believe I’m going to make more and more videos in this manner because of the personal aspect it maintains.  I love small events, like house shows or hanging out with friends and getting weird.  I want to show this beauty to those in the world who do not have this in their day to day lives.  I have a love for this video similar to that of loving a gift you’ve made for someone you care about.

I hope you’ll enjoy it too!  It’s a Patreon patron exclusive. I want to THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP OF MY HEART!!!  Seriously, I know it might be tough for some of you, so thanks a ton.  I wouldn’t be able to work as hard as I do creating all these odd pieces of art without you.  Here’s the song if you’d like to just listen to it, or click on the link above to watch the video and listen!

Big love to y’all, keep fighting the good fight!

Seth

People With Power protest video

I’d prefer to let this video speak for itself.  I will say this, I’m very very proud of the giant crew of people involved in the making of this and inspired to no end by the progress we are making as a team over here.

This video is meant to be empowering to the people in a difficult time, bring inspiration to others to not only continue on, but to thrive in the face of adversity.
