Quotes

“Padenrich Station represents all there is to love about the mellow and thoughtful side of modern folk music. Instead of simply featuring 'lyrics', the emphasis is on stories as each song seems to share a piece of the artists themselves.”
– Brett Barest, Anderson Independent Mail
“Hill's sharp, skeletal acoustic arrangements blend well with the duo's harmonies and Wright's vivid lyrics. Influences like the Decemberists and the Civil Wars shine through clearly”
– Michael Staton, Anderson Independent Mail
“It is Hill's love of modern indie and Wright's admiration for the traditional folk storytelling that gives this band its fun sound”
– Leena Dbouk, Spartanburg Herald Journal
“This is a great duo and a must see. These two lighten every room they perform in. I consider them a priceless piece of Spartanburg's music scene.”
– Joe Power, Booker, RJ Rockers Brewery
“Like well balanced smooth wine, Padenrich Station is easy to enjoy.”
– Dixie M Benca, co-owner McGee's Irish Pub & Restaurant
“Folk music at its finest.”
– Lisa Garland, Owner, Stomping Grounds

About

Padenrich Station

"Folk Trumpet? Is that a thing?"

That's what Marie Wright wondered when her music partner, Jamie Hill, asked her to play trumpet in the folk duo they had formed almost 20 years after losing touch. All that time ago, Marie couldn't have imagined she'd be pulling out her high school marching band trumpet so she could play it with Jamie in a local bar. And Jamie could scarcely know that the organic melodies and tendril acoustic arrangements he had been nurturing for the past decade would intertwine with Marie's fireside lyrics and crystalline vocals.

With almost 800 miles separating them, they made their first album, By Way of Alabama, having never actually played together in the same room. Soon after the release of the album, Jamie and Marie ended up living in the same town. They then began learning how to write, play, and sing together in real life. They focused on developing a live performance and began booking shows. Switching between guitar, mandolin, and trumpet, they bring a mellow vibe and intimacy to their live shows that relax the souls of their audience.
