*“These guys were sooooooo good! And you can tell that they really love what they do.I would have to describe them as rock with a back-woods county flavor that leaves a good taste in your mouth. A mix of Allman Bros. riffs, Grateful Dead jam, and vocals that combine George Thorogood with Joni Mitchell. These guys capture the Fairfax vibe and turn it up to 11.” Shelly Champine - MARIN LOCAL MUSIC

Lansdale Station will release their first official band album, mid October 2008. Recorded at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco, and recorded mixed & mastered at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, Ca., this body of work is well crafted, ballsy yet intelligent, and focuses on powerful vocal harmonies, poignant lyrics, heavy grooves, and stellar slide & lead guitar riffs.
Named after a demolished train station in Marin County, Ca., Lansdale Station formed over the summer of 2005, when a union of legendary Bay Area players came together to record Lauren Murphy\'s album, \"Magnolia Heart.\"(CD BABY) The result was a powerful concoction, melding \'Southern Roots\' music with the \'New San Francisco Sound.\' Now in their 3rd year, momentum, versatility, & reputation has earned Lansdale Station wide spread radio support and coveted Main Stage slots on the Festival Circuit and at Destination Venues.
Coming from the jazz/rock/electric band ZERO, lead vocalist , Judge Murphy, teamed up w/ his wife, New Orleans composer, vocalist, guitarist, & dancer Lauren Murphy( HOUSELEVELERS / DELPHINIUM BLUE /ZERO). The two have a symbiotic stage presence with a power that charms.
Their shows have fast become a favorite of audiences, well known for their mighty harmony vocals & stage chemistry.
\"Magnolia Heart\", by Lauren Murphy, has been dubbed \"triumphant\" & \" a musical direct hit\" by Indie Music.com and can be heard on the airwaves throughout California, into the South East, and in Europe. Their new Cd, \"Lansdale Station\", is primed to be one of the best albums of 2008.
