I hear something new and exciting, a deeper digging maybe, toward the spiritual and soulful.

Inventive songsmithing and well-paired vocals...

 Fendrick & Peck (Madeline Fendrick and Brian Peck) are a couple of ordinary people who have put together their own variety show of songs, poems, and stories. Their music, though familiar and comforting in sound, is noted for its exquisite harmony, lyrics, and composition with a certain raw imperfection that helps you feel at ease in the world for a little while. Their lyrical content centers on the rebellious messages growing in opposition to our cultural narrative; perhaps the answers we seek actually are in peace in wildness, accepting our authentic selves, and love of the finest kind. Fendrick & Peck, now in their 5th year living off love and generosity, have three full length albums: Make Your Way Out/Make Your Way In and The Sandhill Crane (both produced by Timothy Frantzich in Minneapolis), and Lucky Penny, recorded by Nashville recording engineer/producer Bil VornDick. You can find them sharing their music in venues from their hometowns in Wisconsin to Germany, Opera Houses to Living Rooms, Festivals, Conferences, and Libraries. They have received praise from DJ Rich Warren (of Chicago’s the Midnight Special) and been hailed as the “future of folk music” by DJ Queen of Washington D.C. Mary Cliff.
