Ian McFeron tours in support of his album “Time Will Take You”, recorded in Nashville and produced by Grammy nominated Doug Lancio. McFeron is joined on stage by longtime friend and musical accompanist Alisa Milner on fiddle, cello, and harmony vocals. In the Spring and Fall of the last five years, McFeron has scheduled a ten-week tour performing over sixty shows across the nation. This will be McFeron’s ninth national tour.
Seattle-based Ian McFeron released his 7th studio record Time Will Take You on April 2, 2013. Produced by Doug Lancio (Grammy nominated producer for Patty Griffin), the folk-rock album also includes two of Ryan Adams’ Cardinals – drummer Brad Pemberton and pedal steel player Jon Graboff – as well as Nashville-based piano and organ player Micah Hulscher and two from McFeron’s road band – fiddler and harmony vocalist Alisa Milner, and bassist and harmony vocalist Norman Baker.
Themes for “Time Will Take You” were taken directly from McFeron’s own touring experiences performing up to 170 shows per year across the United States. The album maintains stout-hearted positivity while exploring themes of troubled times, hard traveling, and a thin pocketbook. Fans of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Jackson Browne will feel at home in his music.
More recently, in March of 2014, McFeron released a ten track acoustic album (titled “Acoustic”) recorded in just two days at Studio Litho in Seattle, WA with the help of recording engineer and producer Chad Brown of Nashville, TN. The album features previously released songs as well as four unrecorded songs presented in a stripped down acoustic format with accompaniment from fiddler, cellist, and harmony vocalist Alisa Milner.
Praise for Time Will Take You
“With a jingle of tambourine we get a likely candidate for album of the year – simple as… Soaked in California sunshine one minute, then deep in the dustbowl the next, it’s like a greatest hits of everyone you like.”
– Rudie Humphrey, Americana UK, May 2013
“By diligently listening to Ian McFeron’s 7th album, it is a mystery that he is not signed to a major label, although he is mentioned in the same breath as both Bob Dylan and John Lennon…..”
–Hans Bloom, Dalademokraten
“McFeron is a wordsmith of quality who seems at ease with acoustic guitar or piano…”
– Blues Matters, August 2011
‘Ain’t Dead Yet’ could easily be a great lost Dylan song from the mid 1960s or more likely a brand new Justin Townes Earl Song – it really is that good.”
– Maverick Magazine, July 2011
“…You don’t have to know about Ian McFeron’s background to know that these songs were all probably written in cheap hotels in the middle of the night, and history tells us that’s where the best ones come from…”
– Alan Harrison, Maverick Magazine, UK
“Seattle duo pays frequent calls to S.A. That’s a good thing because McFeron is a fine singer and songwriter, an alt-folk/rock/Americana performer who strikes a cool balance between the mellow and the edgy.”
– Jim Beal, San Antonio Express, 11/25/10
“Singer-songwriter Ian McFeron has a surprisingly diverse musical palate, shifting from alternative country to acoustic rock and blues.”
– Gene Stout, Seattle PI, September 2005
