New York singer-songwriter Joe Iadanza is back with a new single lifted from his recently released new album Common Man. The lilting and rootsy Weary Hearts is available on all download and streaming platforms now, and showcases his command of indie-folk melodies and honest Americana storytelling.
“Music is the way I process the world. It’s how I process the emotions that I feel – the happenings, the ups and downs, the good and the bad, and the love and the sorrows and the pain,” explains Iadanza on the new single.
“I take that and channel all of that emotion into music and song. Weary Hearts is a meditation on the light that hides within each of us – no matter how dark it may look on the surface”.
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, Joe Iadanza understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. With a voice that recalls Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin, and songs that hearken to the impassioned story- telling of Springsteen and Leonard Cohen, this Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw.
Joe’s return to the road in 2019 is marked by the release of his third studio album, Common Man. With words and music by Iadanza, Common Man is a folk-rock love letter about trust, starting over, and charting new relationships. Filled with deeply personal stories, rich symbolism, anthemic hooks, and a classic production vibe, this beautiful sounding record is a leap forward for Iadanza in terms of songwriting, delivery, and production. Common Man brings Joe Iadanza’s beloved 1970s storytelling style into the twenty-first century, respectfully nodding its head to artists like Cat Stevens, CSNY, and Bruce Springsteen, while confidently owning its own voice; a voice that has truly found something to say.
