Album Reviews: Seth Bernard
Seth Bernard’s summer release feels like the dawning of a new day after a very, very long night. In Bernard’s own words, the album is about “personal healing, social change and cultural transformation,” which feels more pertinent now than any other time in recent memory. “My Heart Is My Home” was made possible through a number of remote collaborations with other Michigan-based artists, including Theo Katzman (Vulfpeck), Jordan Hamilton (Last Gasp Collective) and Dave Bruzza (Greensky Bluegrass). It’s these collaborations with friends that help push Bernard’s conglomeration of folk, country and classic rock to a level not heard on previous releases, particularly on tracks such as “Rangin’” and “All This Time,” which feature prominent vocal contributions from Jordan Hamilton and Amber Hasan, respectively.
