MUSIC

“Seth’s music is a sonic bouquet of delicious melodies, melt-in–your-mouth harmonies, warm butterscotch guitars that jangle and shine — made with love and reverence for the music of the golden age of pop — guaranteed to raise a smile!” —Susanna Hoffs, The Bangles

I started out as songwriter with Chappell Music Co. in New York City writing songs for a myriad of popular recording artists (see,Timeline). It was a dream job. As a recording artist myself, I’ve made three solo albums (with a new one coming in April, 2021). I’ve also made three albums of all original material with my retro-60s-sounding band, The Red Button, below.

THE RED BUTTON

The Red Button

“If The Red Button had been around when I was producing, I would have signed them to EMI.” 
 — Norman “Hurricane” Smith, The Beatles main recording engineer (1962-1965) and producer of Pink Floyd.

 The Red Button is a collaboration with LA singer-songwriter, Mike Ruekberg. We share a deep love of the melodic music of the 60s and, well, created our own! Give it a listen!
