Singer Songwriter from San Francisco. Atlanta, GA raised her in church choirs and baseball stadiums. She pays homage to those southern roots using a signature combination of clawhammer and traditional banjo playing. San Francisco gave her the inspiration to begin writing her own music and solidifying her original sound. McFarling explores territory outside the clear influences of folk, old time, bluegrass and country, creating an authentic blend that is equally at home at firesides or festivals. Her music reeks of transitions, and the ups and downs of choosing a life of shifting foundations in a place that is consciously existing in anticipation of the next big shake. McFarling's music, like herself, occupies a place between places.
