Seth has written hit songs for artists ranging from Rufus Wainwright to Al Green, Celine Dion to Michael McDonald. Remember the smash hit "Tell It To My Heart" by Taylor Dayne - Seth wrote it along with her follow-up smash "Prove Your Love". His songs have been on 24 gold and platinum records and have been featured in some of Hollywood's biggest movies, among them, Legally Blond, Two Weeks Notice and Big Daddy. Currently, Seth's song "Love Is A Beautiful Thing" sung by Al Green was chosen by Almay for their new international television advertising campaign.

Other artists who have recorded Seth's songs include: Tina Turner (for the 5x platinum Princess Diana Tribute Record), Olivia Newton-John (for her Greatest Hits CD), Air Supply, Smokey Robinson, The Go-Go's Jane Weidlin, French superstar Lara Fabian, The Four Tops, Faith Evans, Emmy Lou Harris and many others.
