Ian McFeron, whose lyrical prose has been compared to Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams and David Gray, weaves together a variety of roots-Americana styles to create his own unique blend of roots-oriented American music. A fully independent artist and self-functioning record label, McFeron has shared the stage with artists such as Patty Griffin, Nanci Griffith, Shawn Mullins, Brandi Carlile, Mike Doughty, Sister Hazel, Amos Lee, Hayes Carll, and Missy Higgins, and is dedicated to building audiences on the road, touring the United States and Europe over 200 dates a year. Currently, McFeron is on tour in support of his newest album "Summer Nights," recorded in Nashville, TN with a cast of musicians drawn from Ryan Adams' and Patty Griffin's touring bands.
On the road, McFeron (vocals, guitars, piano) is joined by Alisa Milner, a Texas-style fiddler, cellist, and harmony vocalist.
Olinde (pronounced Oh-lind) is a Boston based singer-songwriter who self-released her debut album Love Me Tomorrow in February 2012. Olinde's delicate folk songs recall the 60s folk revival with a relaxed intensity and purity of voice that is striking. The daughter of a painter and a ballet teacher, she picked up the guitar and wrote her first song just 3 years ago. From the start, Olinde's songs had an otherworldly way about them; elegant melodies floating above her lightly picked guitar. Recorded in Boston and New York City, Love Me Tomorrow's ten intimate tracks blend folk and jazz with subtle accompaniments. Olinde assembled a mix of New York and Boston musicians including Reid Angwin (electric guitar), Elana Arian (violin), Mark Lipman (harmony vocals), David Piper (upright bass), and Jared Seabrook (drums) to help fill out the tracks. Love Me Tomorrow was engineered and mixed by Matt Nelson at Liquid Lab, and mastered by Grammy award winner Luis Herrera at Masterhead Lab Mastering. Olinde was a top ten finalist at the 2011 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase. She has performed at Club Passim, Banjo Jim's, The Lizard Lounge, and Toad. "Absolutely hypnotic." "Impressive folksy vocals." "Akin to a music box." The Backstage Beat Boston's Premiere Music Magazine
