Ian McFeron’s music and songwriting have drawn comparisons to John Lennon, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, David Gray, and Ryan Adams among others. Weaving together a variety of popular styles, McFeron explores traditions ranging from electric-rock to gospel; from acoustic-pop to Americana, blues and swing. McFeron established roots in his hometown after his debut was picked up by famed Seattle radio station KMTT 103.7 “The Mountainâ€�. Listeners responded strongly, and subsequent releases garnered continued support from the station. McFeron went on to share the stage with international artists such as Patty Griffin, Sister Hazel, Shawn Mullins, Brandi Carlile, Mike Doughty, Amos Lee, and Hayes Carll. Early success in Seattle drew McFeron into a full-time recording and touring career. He would spend the next decade performing throughout the United States, growing a national audience and attracting media attention stretching across the Atlantic.

Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement, Greenwich Village................. He later headed south of Mason-Dixon line spending time in Nashville before landing in Austin, Tx for several years. Now residing in West Hollywood, Jamie continues to perform his own steeped-in-the-tradition originals with his reinterpretations of other numbers from the great real American music songbook that span from its origins to today. Jamie Thomas' song "She's" will be heard in an upcoming indie film and his track "Wild as the Fire" is slated to be heard in an upcoming online television series.
