Brooding and subtle harmony accompany an ethereal sounding production on Barry Wilsons voice during “Finale feat.

Finale is the concluding music video and single offering prior to the debut album release from Barry Wilson.

The piece, written and arranged by Barry Wilson, is a dark ballad of sorts combining rich orchestration between a full band, string section and brass section, interwoven to create a unique sound with strong emotional resonance both lyrically and musically.

An impossible-to-pigeon-hole sonic experience with captivating lyrics questions the diluted nature of our relationships with others and the world as we strive to create the best versions of ourselves online while sacrificing our own and others genuine happiness.

The video, directed and edited by Cork-based videographers Isla Media, reflects a relationship in crisis and how living in denial of the breakdown further poisons the well.

Finale features the breathtaking voice of Sara Ryan; an award-winning Irish songwriter who has lent her immense talents to Barry Wilsons project before on their collaboration Starlight released last year.
