Seth MacFarlane Music is better than Words

EPIX, an entertainment channel, video-on-demand and online service will take subscribers back in time with the Seth MacFarlane (concert) musical experience this fall.

Premiering September 24th on EPIX and, the live performance of his upcoming album Music is Better than Words was shot with special guest Sara Bareilles at the ultra-hip Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

The Emmy Award-winning, multitalented MacFarlane, known for creating “Family Guy,” pulls out all the stops to duplicate the atmosphere in which Ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra, flourished.

His new album is a crisp sounding orchestral/big band record that features MacFarlane singing some of the hidden musical gems of the ’40s and ’50s.

Introducing this rich sound and classic integrity to a new audience, the album features duets with beloved artists Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles, and was arranged, conducted, and produced by film and television composer Joel McNeely, who conducted the orchestra at the event.

In the live performance, MacFarlane utilizes multi-track audio for HDTV and transports himself and viewers to the era with the help of Grammy nominated singer, Sara Bareilles.

“Seth MacFarlane’s talent is far reaching,” said EPIX president and CEO Mark Greenberg.

EPIX has developed a respected platform for award-winning performers with past musical events including, Usher: OMG, Madonna: Sticky & Sweet, Kings of Leon: Live at the O2, Bon Jovi: The Circle Tour: Live from New Jersey and The Black Eyed Peas: The E.N.D. World Tour 2010.

EPIX, a joint venture between Viacom Inc., its Paramount Pictures unit, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM) and Lionsgate, is a next-generation entertainment channel, video-on-demand and online service launched on October 30, 2009.
