“No More Wishin” is a compilation of 11 original compositions by the always resourceful Ken Battista. This guy flat out writes catchy tunes like the ballads "soliloquy" and “Locked Up", hypnotic, sultry tunes like the first track “The Spark" with layered vocals augmented with an earthy tenor sax outro. "Halfway House for Lovers” won an award in the dance category of the 1998 John Lennon Song writing contest. “Shomeyobiness” is another dance song rooted in the soul and funk styles of James Brown and Prince.
The diversity does not stop there. “All This and More” is an acoustic longing for a happy ending song while “Two Clouds” is a John Lennon meets Sting and Robert Fripp fantasy mix. Just for good measure, "Handicap" satisfies the blues jones, reminiscent of Stevie Ray. “Solid White Eye” is the lone instrumental with a Weather Report/Miles Davis vibe. The album closes with the only song not written solely for this project. “Lonely Gondolier” is a whimsical novelty song written by Ken several years ago. It is the tale of a Gondolier who finds himself in the unenviable position of serenading his ex-lover and her husband on their wedding night.
This collection of material written for his debut album is an eclectic blend of Pop, Dance, Jazz, Rock and Soul; so diverse that the only similarity in styles is the quality of each endeavor. Enjoy!

Thanks for the great tunes.....What diversity!
My sister in Phoenixville and I in Allentown both have copies of "No More Wishin'" (she bought it for me), and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy it. We first saw your band on the back porch of the Collegeville Inn in the spring of last year. We couldn't believe how good you were.
Thanks for the great tunes.. "Locked Up" is kind of a Billy Joel-ish sound, and of course I love "Lonely Gondalier"... all the songs have a distinct style. What diversity! My best to all of you. I expect to hear you on the radio one of these days...
