Summer Nights was recorded and mixed in just ten days at Studio G! in East Nashville, TN. Produced by Patty Griffin’s long-time guitarist and musical collaborator Doug Lancio, the album features musical performances by Lancio as well as Ryan Adams and the Cardinals’ drummer Brad Pemberton, Ryan Adams’ bassist Billy Mercer, keyboardist Micah Hulscher, and violinist/cellist Alisa Milner.
Chronicling a summer of late night soul-searching, Summer Nights follows a restless individual through a world of fevered dreams, ghostly visions, and late-night wanderings through the winding side streets of Cape Town, South Africa, Barcelona, Spain, and Seattle, WA. Initially an attempt to invoke the spirits of people and places lost to the past, the final message of the album is one of acceptance; about moving forward. The chorus of the twelfth song, Windchime sings, "it's too late to turn back now / There's nowhere left to go / It used to keep me lying awake / But right now I feel safe / Right now I feel safe."
“…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
