Bio: Award-winning Singer, Songwriter, Multi-instrumentalist
Inspired by the poet Rumi, songwriting greats Neil Young and Paul Simon, and the world music fusion of Ry Cooder, Len Seligman's music "radiates joy. When you listen to him, you'll find your spirit lifted to a higher, truer realm--and you may just find yourself dancing!" (recording artist Carey Creed)
Len has won several songwriting awards, including:
- First Place (plus 3 Finalist awards), Great American Song Contest; over 1800 songwriters entered
- Finalist, Best Video, Positive Music ("Posi") Awards
- Nominated for four Washington Area Music Awards ("WAMMIES")
- Finalist, Top Conscious Music Songs (2017), Soul Traveler Radio, Australia
Len is a thrilling improviser on guitar and guitalele (ukulele/guitar hybrid). Grammy-winning recording artist David Darling speaks of his "soulful, virtuoso playing." After many years as a PhD computer researcher-geek, Len returned full-time in early 2018 to his first love of music.
Len's most recent album, "Shine Your Light" was released in May 2017. It is a collection of 12 joyous and inspiring songs, impeccably recorded, with gorgeous harmonies, and superb musicianship. Listen and order here.
