Ian McCuen is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Buffalo, NY. They specialize in DIY bedroom-folk music featuring delicate and haunting arrangements, and deeply personal and emotive lyricism. McCuen's project, Songs of Fleeting Permanence, spans three albums and details a period of introspection and existential contemplation across their late teens/early twenties. It involves themes of depression, anxiety, isolation, dependency, paranoia, insecurity, unrequited love, aging, and grappling with death. All three volumes were recorded in late 2016, alone in a bedroom, and using only a laptop, two microphones, and instruments lying around the house. The entire project is now available to stream worldwide.
