Bio

Wishful are a five-piece Melbourne-based band, creating vibrant dream-pop music with eclectic instruments, melodic harmonies and some sass on the side.

The band started out as a trio who met at Queenscliff music festival and eventually progressed into a collective of five members. Wishful have performed at various events and festivals including Queenscliff Music Festival, Warrandyte Music Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, and The Heart of St Kilda Charity Concert at the Palais Theatre. They have supported Paul Kelly on tour in Leongatha and Castlemaine and have had residencies at the Toff In Town, Honey Bar and Story Bar.

The band are thrilled to announce the release of their upcoming EP 'S', consisting of five original tracks, which will be available for purchase in October 2014 on bandcamp and iTunes.
