Album Notes
Wishing Well is an album of children’s music that aims to honor the intelligence and creativity of children and also the musical tastes of acoustic music-loving parents. It explores a wide range of concepts with melodies and lyrics that are highly memorable and relatable for children of all ages.

Nick Bayard was inspired to write the songs for this album shortly after he began performing traditional folk music in Washington, DC with his 11-year-old future stepson, Ukweli. Many of the songs reflect Ukweli’s imagination and favorite things (e.g., pancakes and “reverse engineering”), and Ukweli sings harmonies on nearly half of the songs.

Nick Bayard’s vision for Wishing Well is that children from ages 0 to 183 will be happy to play it on repeat in their cars and in their homes.
