Bio

‘Wishes’ is the moniker for Sydney-based producer, vocalist and multi- instrumentalist John Towey. A solo talent with an extensive musical past, Towey has a long held passion to bridge the gap between acoustic and electronic music composition. In a live setting, Towey is joined by Catriona Hunter (drums) and Mark Harding (bass/synth) to round out a unique live show. Since making waves in the electronic community with his debut single ‘I Want To Be Alone With You’, Towey has been hailed for his vibrant and untamed approach to pop music with an avid appreciation for both synths and guitars in equal parts. His debut single ‘I Want To Be Alone With You’ saw critical acclaim amongst global media, debuting at No. 8 on the Global Viral 50 Spotify Charts. It's follow up 'Settle' received similar acclaim, with both sitting on a combined 2.8 million Spotify streams. Having previously delighted audiences with energetic DJ sets, Wishes joined KLP in supporting Neon Indian for two shows on the West coast leg of their 2015 Australian tour. Wishes also supported Tigertown on their 2016 tour and offered a dreamy interpretation of their single ‘Lonely Cities’.

Excuse me but am in the 2010 remake of seminal science-fiction film Tron right now because I feel like I'm in the future and the past at the same time with this remix.

Great swagger to this while also holding down some pretty tropical vibes. In short, a lot going on but it all works.
