COMMON MAN, with words and music by Joe Iadanza, 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 his beloved 1970s storytelling style into the twenty-first century.
COMMON MAN respectfully nods its head to artists like Cat Stevens, Harry Chapin, Leonard Cohen, and Bruce Springsteen, and yet confidently owns its own voice; a voice that has truly found something to say.
ALL IN GOOD TIME
With his largely fan-funded sophomore LP, All in Good Time, Joe Iadanza has crafted an album of songs that speak for themselves with a rare eloquence. These 10 tracks, produced by Evan Brubaker (Edie Carey, Rachel Harrington, Jenee Halstead), and mastered by Grammy Award winner David Glasser, have been stripped to their very essence.
Featuring Julie Wolf on piano (Ani Difranco, Dar Williams, Bruce Cockburn), Carolin Pook on violin, Craig Akin (Red Molly) on double bass, and Gathering Time on backing vocals, the unadorned production delivers a working-class austerity, revealing a gifted scene-painter and storyteller.
“Traveling Salesman” with songs by Joe Iadanza is a heart-opening (sometimes foot-stompin’) record that spans the genres of folk, rock, roots and Americana, while exploring themes of Love, stepping out into the world, and learning to enjoy the ride.
The independent release is Joe’s first full-length studio album, and features the talents of: Carolin Pook (violin), Craig Akin (double bass) and Joe Hertenstein (Drums/Percussion). “Gathering Time”, the CSN influenced trio of Glen Roethel, Hillary Foxsong & Stuart Markus, arranged and performed extensive backing vocals, and even took the lead on the albums final track. There’s also a guest slide-dobro appearance by David Mowry, of “Beaucoup Blue”.
