Ian McFeron and Alisa Milner perform Saturday

Ian McFeron broke into the Seattle music scene after his self-produced debut album “Don’t Look Back” (2003) was discovered by “The Mountain” in Seattle (KMTT 103.7 FM). An independent and virtually unknown local artist at the time, McFeron’s heartfelt lyrics and tightly composed songs inspired the Seattle media giant to put the album’s lead-off single, “Love Me Twice,” into rotation.

Within months, McFeron and his newly formed band shared the spotlight with artists such as Patty Griffin and Hayes Carll.

McFeron has continued to release a steady stream of albums since his debut.

His blues-rock sophomore release, “A Long Way To Freedom” (2005), was soon followed by the rock-Americana record “Fistfight With Father Time” (2006). Following albums included “Let It Ride” (2007) and “Love Me Blue” (2009).

Still a fully independent artist and self-functioning record label, McFeron has dedicated himself to building audiences the old fashioned way: on the road. Living for months on end in his vintage 1970 tour bus, McFeron travels from city to city, state to state inspiring listeners. On the road, McFeron (vocals, guitars, piano) is joined by Alisa Milner, a Texas-style fiddler, cellist, and harmony vocalist.

They perform Saturday at the Peppermill Steakhouse, Friday Harbor.
