Seth Bernard could be considered something of a wunderkind, and a multi-tasking wunderkind at that. The Michigan native currently boasts not one, but two current albums — Let Love Light the Way, recorded last year entirely on his own during lockdown, and a brand new effort, My Heart Is My Home, featuring a full ensemble. As the titles suggest, each boasts songs flush with emotional resilience, one that steers the proceedings from meditative melodies to rousing anthems flush with oversized choruses and all but irresistible refrains.
Given its rich arrangements, My Heart Is My Home is breathtaking to say the least, one that takes its listeners on an intimate sonic journey and leaves them sharing those sentiments with every note and nuance. “It’s been healing for me to write these songs,” Bernard writes. “We’re all looking for a warm place to be. We’re all looking for a place to belong. I can’t sing like you, I sing like me. And I pour it all into my songs. I keep rockin’. My heart is my home.” Those sentiments clearly come through. Indeed, it’s rare to find a record that shares its feelings and reason for being so emphatically. My Heart Is My Home is the comforting destination that’s ready to welcome us all.
