The Wishing Well





Welcome to the home of The Wishing Well!

Beguiling orchestral and lush, The Wishing Well create spellbinding sounds which produce a rich tapestry of mesmerizing folk, pop and rock. Originally hailing from Australia, the world-touring 7 piece now features an international group of troubadours that spans 3 continents (Australia, England, Hungary, Scotland, Spain and USA).

Since their formation seven years ago, the Band has toured tirelessly playing over 2000 gigs on the international circuit.  Career highlights include slots at the Queenscliff Music Festival (Aus), The Blue Balls Festival (Switzerland), The Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Scotland), Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Skagenfest (Denmark - Florafox.com) and Nibe Festival (Denmark), Galway Sessions (Ireland), Sankt Hans Festival (Denmark), Labadoux Festival (Belgium), Arts Festival of Far North Norway (Norway), Canterbury Arts Festival (England) Across The Tracks (England), Croperdy Folk Festival Fringe (England), Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (Northern Ireland), Neun Naumbuerger Naechte (Germany), Open Flair Festival (Germany), Geigenrock Festival (Germany) and Little Woodstock (Germany).

The Wishing Well has released two albums and has sold over 40,000 CDs independently. Lead singer Jai Larkan has previously supported artists such as Bob Geldof, Andy White, Liam O'Maonlai and Tim Finn and the band has shared the stage with David Gray, James Morrison, Seal and Joss Stone.  

The Wishing Well's songs are rich in textural depth, building gradually to dizzying heights only to momentarily pause and cascade into an orchestral crescendo. Awe-inspiring arrangements spun around magnificently poetic lyrics, a cacophony of three part harmonies, wistful violin and viola, oceanic cello and majestic rhythms all melded to lead singer Jai Larkan's achingly strong and haunting vocals evokes an extraordinary gamut of emotions. In the melodic tradition of Ryan Adams, David Gray, Dave Matthews Band and The Waterboys, The Wishing Well's music appeals to lovers of emotive lyrics and melody. Their inspiring live performances captivate audiences and have created an enthusiastic and ever-growing worldwide fanbase.

Like true troubadours, the Band is nearly always on tour.  2014 marks The Wishing Well's sixth tour of the UK and Europe and the release of their third album
