Blending elements of folk, pop and roots-rock, Seattle based singer-songwriter Ian McFeron effortlessly creates a groove that is all his own.

Originally from Shoreline, Wash., McFeron began writing songs at an early age, and hasn't stopped since. He first gained attention in the Seattle music scene in 2003 when songs from his self-produced debut album, "Don't Look Back," received airplay on local radio station KMTT. Listeners were immediately taken by his down-to-earth compositions and wry sense of humor. That exposure soon led to opening slots on tours with well known singer-songwriters including Nanci Griffith, Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, Missy Higgins and Hayes Carll. Since then, he has continued to build his audience from a grassroots base by nearly nonstop touring. A tireless performer and prolific writer, McFeron often performs more than 200 shows a year and has released seven full-length albums since 2003. His latest album, "Time Will Take You," was recorded in Nashville and was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin).

Lyrically, McFeron has drawn comparisons to accomplished tunesmiths such as Ryan Adams and Bob Dylan, and his easy style and relaxed stage presence evokes David Gray or Jason Mraz, with more nuance and bite than the latter. On stage, McFeron (who plays both guitar and piano) is frequently joined by violinist and singing partner Alisa Milner, who adds sublime harmony and back up vocals.
