Magrane Hill is the project of two individuals, Travis Magrane and Adam Hill. These Bellingham artists blend Northwest folk with traits common to country. The group bases their sound around a sturdy acoustic guitar and drop in an accompanying keyboard, then front it with vocals not unfamiliar to the Washington town (Kasey Anderson, an artist that originated out of Bellingham before relocating to Portland). Together their songs weave tales common to the genres in which they dabble, from “Wyoming Blues” to “Devil in Red”. And they do so in an effortless manner; these songs are intricate and complicated but they don’t seem so. For those fond of roots-based folk and Americana, Magrane Hill could very well be your next favorite duo.
Magrane Hill recently released an album called Public House.
