Adam Weinberg started music career as a solo instrumental guitarist and independent film scorer. His first record, On the Seventh Year, featured a selection of melodies inspired by Jewish prayer arranged for solo guitar. Music from the record was performed with the renowned percussionist Cyro Baptista (Paul Simon, Trey Anastasio, John Zorn) and was featured in the award winning documentary Unsettled. Adam spent more than five years touring with artist Matisyahu for the singer’s acoustic performances world-wide. Adam’s playing with Matisyahu was noted for its inventive arrangements of traditionally simple reggae tunes.
Adam’s upcoming release Laugh, Cry, Grief, Hope (out May 13 on Regime Music Group) will be Adam’s first lyrical album. Nearly all the songs were written in late 2019 and early 2020 during a difficult six month stretch of life that inspired Adam to begin experimenting with serious lyric writing for the first time in his career. The finished product is an acoustic-band-driven exploration of loss, healing, and a genuine search for joy.
Adam also wears several other hats in the music industry. Most notably – as part of Gelb Productions – Adam has been the VP of marketing and touring for famed tenor Andrea Bocelli for more than 17 years, handling everything from tour routing, marketing, artist relations, and production assistance. During Adam’s time with Gelb Productions, Andrea Bocelli has become one of the highest grossing artists world-wide. Adam also received personal recognition for Andrea Bocelli’s first ever #1 Billboard album “Si” by executing the bundle program which put the record into the hands of hundreds-of-thousands of Bocelli concert goers. Adam also co-produced a number of acclaimed PBS concert television specials including the beloved Hit Man: David Foster & Friends, which became the station’s most successful pledge event in history.
Lastly, in addition to completing Laugh, Cry, Grief, Hope during the pandemic, Adam founded and built a new artist teaching and promotional platform at melophy.com. The site prides itself on providing artists with a fully integrated intuitive platform that organizes calendars, live lessons, automatic payments, and multi-camera technology, all while promoting the artists’ music. With no need for Zoom or third-party sites, Melophy provides each artist and student with all the necessary functionality in one place.
