Wishing On Stars Short Info

Since releasing their debut, namesake album in 2014- the songwriting duo (Sprecher & Scalici) has transformed from a jazz duo into a contemporary, alternative sensation! Inspired by real life stories, Wishing On Stars' sophomore album is full of raw emotion, passion, love, and loss. Scalici's diverse arrangements for each song sound effortless and smooth. He has composed each song with a personal flare and unique style, acquired from years of experience. His country/rock vibe in "What If" and "Questioning" will thrill lovers of classic rock & roll; while his ukulele melodies leave the listener feeling the emotion and heart described in "Feelings For You". His acoustic touch on Inner Child, along with Sprecher's soft, nostalgic vocals- transform this song into a beautiful ballad. His extensive background of jazz, blues, country, rock, and classical guitar will appeal to listeners of all ages and backgrounds. Sprecher's crystal clear, refreshing vocals shine through in "Hazel Eyes", voicing the concerns of most young women in this song about finding "the one". She returns to her jazz roots, drawing the listener in with "'Don’t Care About The Weather"- a fun, 1940’s inspired, gypsy jazz tune. Empowering anthems, "Don’t Look Now" and "Questioning", will inspire and excite. Sprecher's Broadway vocals entice, telling a story with each note. The duo is joined by a fantastic group of session musicians from various musical backgrounds. From 1940’s to '80’s, jazz to rock, blues to country- Don’t Look Now has something for everyone.
