Songwriters draw inspiration from all parts of life: the mundane and
the spectacular, love and hate, pain and forgiveness, life and death.
For Bryan Weinsztok, the singer, songwriter and guitarist for Soul
Risin’, those latter themes supplied him the motivation to write the 11
songs on the band’s new independent album Rise & Fall. The CD
was released on Tuesday, Oct. 16, a day connected to those
inspirational ideas of life and death: Oct. 16 also marked the one-year
anniversary that Weinsztok lost his father, Alejandro (Alex) Gabriel
Weinsztok, to cancer.
