"...You don't have to know about Ian McFeron's background to know that these songs were all probably written in cheap hotels in the middle of the night, and history tells us that's where the best ones come from..." - Alan Harrison, Maverick Magazine, UK
Time Will Take You reprises the musical collaboration between songwriter Ian McFeron and guitarist/producer Doug Lancio. Lancio, who first worked with McFeron on his 2011 release Summer Nights, rallies together another all-star Nashville band for this project, including two from Ryan Adams’ group The Cardinals (Brad Pemberton, Jon Graboff) as well as members from John Hiatt and Patty Griffin’s touring bands.
A playful and upbeat follow up to the introspective Summer Nights, Time Will Take You maintains stout-hearted positivity while exploring themes of troubled times, hard traveling, and a thin pocketbook. It finds romance in quiet moments and simple tasks, celebrates true companionship, and points hopefully to better days ahead.
Recorded in just three days at Studio G in East Nashville, TN, this record is a performance driven display of top-level musicianship. Prizing charismatic impulse over modern studio tricks, every instrument on the album- including all ten of the lead vocal tracks- was captured live on a 2” Studer reel-to-reel tape machine.
Fans of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and The Band will feel at home in this offering, which follows in those ‘60’s and ‘70’s folk-rock traditions of tightly composed songs, thematic hooks and infectious grooves, giving it a sound that is at once classic and timeless.
“…McFeron is a fine singer and songwriter, an alt-folk/rock/Americana performer who strikes a cool balance between the mellow and the edgy.” —Jim Beal, San Antonio Express-News Music Critic
