Kindred spirits and longtime friends Carolann Solebello and Joe Iadanza are perhaps the yin and yang of performing songwriters. Solebello’s smooth, warm voice and precise rhythm guitar perfectly dovetail Iadanza’s raw, honest vocals and graceful six-string virtuosity. Smart songwriting chops and emotional eloquence possessed by both blur the lines between tough and tender, masculine and feminine, Americana and folk.
CAROLANN SOLEBELLO is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City. Best known to folk audiences as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly, she now tours both solo and with modern folk quartet No Fuss and Feathers. Carolann’s smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style surely nod to rural folk traditions, yet her decidedly urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend those traditional forms into more contemporary shapes. She is a proud member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters’ Exchange and has won numerous songwriting awards. Carolann released her fifth solo album, Shiver, in February 2018. http://www.CarolannSolebello.com
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, JOE IADANZA understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. Recalling Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, and Cat Stevens, this Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. Iadanza has been heralded for his deeply personal songwriting, and fluid, percussive guitar playing. He continues to work with artists as a producer and songwriting coach, including with Americana artist, Carolann Solebello on her newest release, Shiver; and on Spuyten Duyvil’s The Social Music Hour, Vol. 1, which was nominated by the folk community for an Album of the Year award. Look for a string of new original singles, Including the just-released “Thunder Road” and “Wrecking Ball.” Joe will be on the road with solo and co-bill shows beginning this fall. http://www.JoeIadanza.com
