-Performing Songwriter Magazine



"Seth writes with the same intimacy that can be found on my favorite tracks from Lennon/McCartney, sixties Paul Simon and more recently Elliott Smith. By the end of the album you feel as if you spent a week as his house guest. I host an all Beatles show yet I play Seth's CD...need I say anymore?"
-Chris Carter, Breakfast with The Beatles, 97.1 KLSX, Los Angeles

"Give this one a listen...YOU WILL BE HOOKED!!"

"While other popsters sing about love and romance in lofty, gossamer terms, Swirsky is Marvin Gaye, whisper-singing "let's get it on" in no uncertain term. The song structure on Instant Pleasure is so beautiful and delicate...so beguiling and seductive.
-Kevin Gordon, Alt-Culture Guide, mondogordo.com



"...a combination of pop, rock and folk that is delicate and comforting." -Dina Mystris, Subba-Cultcha.com

-Gina, EOMentertainment.com
