Seth MacFarlane

Biography

Best known as the creative force behind the animated sitcoms Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show, Seth MacFarlane is also a rabid music enthusiast, frequently using his shows for interpretations of his most beloved show tunes or cracking jokes at Celine Dion or Rick Astley's expense. In 2005 he released Family Guy: Live in Vegas, a collection of songs from the show along with some original numbers. In 2009 he sang at the BBC Proms in London during their Celebration of Classic MGM Film Musicals, while 2010 saw him returning for three more shows including a Christmas-themed concert. In 2011 he released an album filled with standards, Music Is Better Than Words. Far from being received as a novelty, Music Is Better Than Words was an actual hit, peaking at two on the Billboard jazz charts (it reached 111 on the Billboard 200) and earning a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. It was enough of a success to warrant a sequel, a sequel that came in the form of Holiday for Swing!, a Christmas record that arrived in September 2014.
