"Gravel To Gold" by singer songwriter Ian McFarland moves at an out of breath pace


























Ian McFarland is a singer songwriter currently based in Los Angeles (via New Hampshire) and his track Gravel To Gold moves at an out of breath pace, churning guitar around a restless beat that provides the wanderlust framework for McFarland's pop inspired vox. The lyrics wrap around it all stopping only a few times to breath. The track feels inspired and running up a hill to something or someone.
