MIXTAPES, a collaborative concert series produced by Buffalo Music Club, seeks to bring artists together on stage for exciting one-time-only experiences. For this series premiere, three songwriters have put together a special collection of old and new songs to perform in a variety of combinations backed by the Buffalo String Collective (with arrangements written by Cloyd). The lineup for BSC includes Inga Yanoski and Jessie Tufte on violin, Kiersten Fisher on viola, and Alex Cousins on cello.
DAVID CLOYD is a solo recording artist with ECR Music Group in NYC, the founder and A&R of Hook & Ladder Records, and the co-founder of Buffalo Music Club. Following its worldwide release, his debut album Unhand Me, You Fiend! hit #1 on eMusic’s Album Charts. Cloyd followed on the national success of that album with I Could Disappear, a powerful collection of solo performances, and a fresh take on a Paul McCartney classic “Dear Boy” from the 1971 album Ram. His third album is scheduled for release in 2024.
GRACE STUMBERG is a Buffalo-based singer/songwriter with an effortless and powerful voice that’s sure to captivate your ears. She has toured Europe and parts of the USA, and her heartfelt and organic songwriting has led her to open for artists such as Joan Baez, Josh Ritter, and The Indigo Girls.
SETH GLIER, a Grammy-nominated artist from Western Massachusetts, possesses an innate curiosity and a fierce desire to connect with other people—and his musical acumen provides him with a vehicle for both. As a cultural diplomat for the US State Department, he has collaborated with musicians in Ukraine, Mongolia, China, and Mexico. Seth has shared the bill with a diverse list of artists ranging from the likes of Ronnie Spector, James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, & Glen Campbell. And as a producer, music director, or studio musician he has collaborated with Sophie B. Hawkins, Tom Rush, Antje Duvekot, Richard Shindell, Doctora Qingona, Dar Williams, Nick Carter, & Cyndi Lauper. Seth is a five-time Independent Music Award winner and received a Grammy nomination for his album The Next Right Thing. With a commitment to using songwriting as a tool for positive change, he has written with the students in Parkland, FL for the “Parkland Project,” cowritten with soldiers at Walter Reed, and is an advocate for autism awareness citing his autistic brother Jamie as his greatest non-musical-musical influence. His new album Everything is a collection of eight songs inviting us to imagine a future in which humans and the planet are re-aligned into mutual restoration.
