I’m Seth Bernard. I'm a Michigan based artist, activist and educator and I’m making a new record! It’s called "Eggtones 4 Directions" and it’s the final release in the 4 album series of new music that I’ve been putting out throughout the last 2 years.
This idea of “Eggtones” is an idea of hatching a new story for our times. Taking this moment and the challenges that we're up against and trying to vision and dream big for a way forward for the young people in our lives. I am grateful to have had people in my life who have challenged me to use my platform as an artist to affect social change and address what we're up against in a way that could potentially fuel people to do more positive work for the common good.
My hope is that this work will inspire your work and that the inventiveness and possibilities within these sounds could potentially help you to use your imagination to help your passion come alive and help your community thrive.
These crowdsourcing campaigns are a way for artists like myself to connect directly with people who find value in the work that we do. As I do work in the classroom and as I do work as an activist for social justice and the environment, I keep on writing songs and finding new sounds.
I’m working with a wonderful crew of collaborators, people who inspire me as human beings and artists. I’m so inspired by this community of artists that I’ve found myself in here in Michigan. It’s collaborative and cooperative, and everyone is trying to lift each other up. I feel so grateful for it and fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate with people who help me expand as an artist.
I’m working with the inspiration of some early American roots sounds that have been with me for years as well as early Rock and Roll and early 8-bit sounds from my childhood.
The Eggtones series has been a way for me to spend time in the studio and spend time with my creative process that has been regenerative.
Thank you so much for your time, for the work you’re doing, thanks for hanging out here while you’re scrolling. I appreciate you. I’ll see you down the road!
