BARRY WEINBERG Launches “Samsarana” Pre-Order

Progressive Rock singer-songwriter Barry Weinberg will release his debut solo album Samsaranaon January 25th. The musician hailing from South Florida has launched the album pre-order through his official website, iTunes, and Amazon.

Commented Weinberg, “As a music lover, I’ve always enjoyed a wide range of musical styles from Progressive Rock to Folk to Classical to Metal. On ‘Samsarana, ’ I wanted to incorporate all these diverse genres in a cohesive way to tell a story, using the music to set the mood for the lyrics. Those who have previewed the album have given me the feedback that it sounds like a movie soundtrack. That was my intention in composing this album. I wanted to create ‘Musical Cinema.’”

Speaking about how much of Samsarana is personal Weinberg states, “I learned guitar by writing songs. I was a bit of a quiet kid and I always expressed myself and what I was going through by writing a song. Many of the songs on ‘Samsarana’ I wrote at key points in my life and they have always been very important to me. ‘Beyond the Astral Sky, ’ for example, I wrote when I was 18. If you read the lyrics, I was going through a pretty dark time and all I wanted to do was escape life. Whereas, ‘Endless Sea, ’ is a more current song which I wrote for the ‘Florida Crackers’ soundtrack about a cattleman I met and his experience with the industrialization of the cattle industry. Not exactly autobiographical, but he and I really connected and it fit right into the story and musical flow of ‘Samsarana.’”

Samsarana is out on January 25th; pre-order it from Barry Weinberg’s website, iTunes or Amazon.
