all around fun and really good-natured person, not to mention an
incredible talent. He made recording (which could be 15 hour days) a fun
and rewarding experience the whole time. He has true passion for music
and loves what he does. Nobody would ever know he’s sold something like
95 million albums by talking to him, very humble and down to earth. He
also flew up to NY in March to come to our EP release party; which was
In addition to their union with Wagner, Station has been invited to
perform at this year's Rocklahoma Festival. "We are really looking
forward to the festival and honored to be playing alongside some of our

As far as what the future holds in store for Station, the quartet
have some big plans in store. "The band is looking to record a full

the world. The next few months will see us performing around the
