Ian McFeron, whose writing has been compared to Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams and John Lennon, weaves together a variety of popular, rock, and Americana styles to create his own take on roots-American music.

McFeron got his start in the Seattle after his self-produced debut album was picked up by a major commercial radio station there. A recent college graduate at the time, McFeron was new to the scene but his tightly composed songs inspired the media giant to put the album’s lead off single, “Love Me Twice,” into rotation. Listeners responded strongly, and within months, McFeron would share the spotlight with international and national artists such as Patty Griffin, Nanci Griffith, Shawn Mullins, Bra...

Jessica Campbell has garnered critical acclaim, awards, and plum synch placements for the warm candor of her distinctive roots pop. Her stunning new album, The Anchor & The Sail, traces romantic relationships from balmy beginnings to painfully complex ends with bold emotionality. “The album title represents life; there are things that hold us back and weigh us down, anchors...and things that let us move forward, sails. The music on this album represents a reflection on past relationships in light of my recent marriage,” the Nashville, Tennessee-based artist confides.

The Anchor & The Sail was carefully culled from a pool of songs birthed from a flood of creativity. The album refines the whimsica... More in the full listing...

House concert favorites! One host said, "The best house guests ever!"

Part soul-searching, part life stories, part standup comedy, 100% Magic. 2013 marks 20 years since Duluth's Bill Isles suffered the near-fatal cardiac arrest that changed his life and jump-started his creative energies. When he started performing his heart-felt original songs and stories in 2000, he never dreamed that his career would develop into a 50,000-mile - and 130-show - per year itinerary. He married his wife, Kate, in 2004 and they have been touring full time as a duo since 2007.

Words like 'Transcendent' and 'Mesmerizing', not to mention 'hilarious' are common in audience descriptions of their live concerts ... More in the full listing...

Dallas-native Allie Farris (age 23) moved to Nashville in January 2011 to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time singer/songwriter and pianist. Over three years later, she’s well on her way to turning that dream into reality, one tour, one show, one contest at a time.

Since living in Nashville, she’s recorded and released two EPs and is currently in post-production on a third project, her first full-length album. 2011’s EP “You Make Me Smile” was recorded with Nashville’s Rachel Loy, and features songs that she had written primarily during her brief stay at Boston’s Berklee College of Music in the fall of 2010. After a spurt of new writing in 2012, she spent much of her non-touring tim... More in the full listing...

The release of Albuquerque Sky proves up-and-coming country music powerhouse, Sarah Peacock, is a contender in several Nashville music arenas. A talented songwriter, she wrote or co-wrote all sixteen tracks on the recording, which smoothly melds pop country and Americana with a dash of rock, a la Ann Wilson. As a multi-instrumentalist, she’s just as comfortable grabbing the reins from any member of her band at any time, a feat that has been known to happen occasionally during a live show. The first impression, however, centers around her distinctive, powerful “smoky” voice, as it was aptly described by renowned music journalist, Craig Havighurst, following a performance at the famed Music City Roots ...

Since moving from Nashville to New England in late summer 2011, Boston folk songstress Annalise Emerick has demonstrated her aptness to awaken reminiscence in the minds of her listeners with just a few simple words. Worldly and wise after years of traveling, this is a conceivable notion, for in many ways the singer is a gypsy -- always restlessly exploring the notion of home musically, emotionally and geographically. She’s claimed a scattering of cities as musical muses, growing up in Austin and Seattle before studying music at Belmont University in Nashville, where she later recorded her first album with producer Brad Hill at Hill Studios.

With her 2011 acclaimed debut EP, Starry-Eyed, Emerick ... More in the full listing...
