We are pleased to welcome New Jersey's singer/songwriter, Sergio Anello to Sunday Drive Records. Sergio recently wrapped up recording at The Lumberyard Recording Studio with Ace Enders & Dom Maggie and will be releasing the album with SDR later this summer. Today, you can hear a raw recording of the self-titled track, ’No Heavier Burden’.
After years of playing bass and touring with The Early November, Sergio began writing songs after the bands' hiatus in 2007 without any intention of releasing them. Years later in 2016, Sergio found himself writing more seriously and met guitarist, Joseph Sipala. After demoing tracks, Sergio formed, Everyone Knows. Sergio’s first solo-effort was heard on Everyone Knows’, Tell Or Be Told, released in 2019. The album consisted of nine tracks ranging from alternative-country to jazz—pulling in influences from The Avett Brothers to Elvis Presley.
By the end of 2019, Sergio decided to move from the moniker, Everyone Knows and began releasing music under his own name with the Christmas track, Santa, For What It’s Worth. For his next release, No Heavier Burden, Sergio finds himself writing much more stripped-back songs. The album is a strong collection of six, raw songs, influenced by 50/60s rock & pop, similar to contemporaries like Shakey Graves, Andy Shauf, and Alexandra Savior.
No Heavier Burden is out this summer on Sunday Drive Records.
