Hailed as the future of the blues, Seth Rosenbloom brings a highly inspired and expressive approach to his music. Seth’s dazzling lines and singing vibrato on the guitar along with his distinctively sultry vocals result in his own interpretation of the blues and are fully on display on his debut, self-titled EP, released September, 2017.
The Boston Globe calls him a “searing blues-rock guitarist” and A.J. Wachtel of The Noise Boston says, “He makes his guitar growl and has a voice to match”. A review of his EP by Mike Rick of the Blues PowR blog compares Seth to “a slightly younger and rawer version of Matt Schofield” and also praises his “gravelly, forceful vocals and stinging guitar work”.
Seth was born into a musical family in Waltham, Massachusetts. After playing classical violin in his earliest years, Seth took up guitar at age eleven, first drawn to the music of Elvis and The Beatles. At the young age of sixteen, Seth was selected for a performance merit scholarship at Berklee College of Music. While a dean’s list student at Berklee, Seth developed his compositional and technical skills in both jazz and improvisational music, extensively expanding his musical vocabulary.
After spending a few years as an active sideman and in demand clinician, Seth stepped into the spotlight with 2017 marking the release of his debut, self-titled EP as well as tour dates up and down the East Coast. His performances always display an intense and deeply committed musicianship. Combined with his engaging and sincere personality, Seth never fails to delight audiences.
Much of 2018 will be spent on the road, with Seth performing to his rapidly growing fanbase across the United States and beyond. He will also head back into the studio to start work on his next album. Don’t miss your chance to see this rising blues guitar star when he comes to a city near you.
