While lost souls around the globe grapple with finding their true path, teenagers spend the fleeting days of their youth experimenting with identity and budding music performers struggle to classify their sound, Station has planted itself on solid ground with electrifying, original melodies that carry allusions to the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll, but stand firmly at the forward edge of the here and now.

The vocal range and charismatic stage presence of Station’s frontman, Patrick Kearney, is just one piece of the outfit’s highly precise, polished machine. Each member is brilliant in his role in the larger, perpetual operation, but adds a distinct artistry with contributions that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Station has reached #12 on the CMJ Loud Rock chart—and Station has electrified the stage at major festivals like Rocklahoma, Musikfest and Great South Bay Music Festival.

The anthemic choruses in tracks like “Dressed To Kill”, “Never Say Never,” “With Me Tonight” are fueled with a sense of freedom and inspire audiences to join in at the top of their lungs. No need for outlandish stage antics and production-room embellishments; the songs on Station’s self-titled debut are an innovative take on everything we love about rock ‘n’ roll.

Station has shared the stage with rock icons like Pat Benatar, Vince Neil, Bret Michaels, Eric Martin of Mr. Big and many more. And they’ve learned from the greats: the synergy between bass and guitar is symbiotic, devoid of too-generous guitar solos or weak lyrics. Textured riffs and enough growl in their vocals quench the listener’s thirst for hard, real, fun and satisfying rock.
