“Eggtones 4 Directions is the musical and conceptual culmination of the “Eggtones” series and it is filled to the brim with beauty, vulnerability, heart and soul. It represents the full spectrum of Bernard’s world as a recording artist, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter. The poetry, the hooks, the production and the conversation between collaborators come together to create Seth’s most mature and brilliant album so far. There’s never been anything like it and at the same time it feels classic and familiar, more rewarding with each listen. Get into it.”

-Dan Lauterbur, Free Range Archaeologist

“This music not only swings, rocks, and grooves–it matters. It’s the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”
