RECENT PRAISE FOR BARCELONA:

"One of the most inspiring album's EVER!!! Musically: GENIUS, Lyrics: GENIUS, Harmonies: GENIUS. It is so rare to come across an album that can bring it all: Inspiration, spiritual enlightenment, tenderness and love. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this new album from Sam Lardner".
Sam Lardner's four tracks are like if James Taylor and a ripping latin guitar player had a child together. Do not miss this!
This cd is so cool. Loved the percussion and spanish guitar. The songs are fantastic. What a great voice and production. Buy it!!!!!
Michael James Moore
It's not often I get this worked-up about a recording. I just think it's one of the best all-around recordings I've heard in a long time. Maybe it's the confluence of its own inherent content & production values--which I feel are exemplary--with current world music trends. The songs, musically and lyrically, the vocal performances, the rich & tasteful arrangements, the instrumental & vocal accompaniments---are all exotic, accessible, and richly compelling.
