Album Notes
Lisa Bastoni had a thriving singer-songwriter career going until she took a break to start a family with her husband, novelist Christopher Boucher. Now, after nearly ten years away from writing and performing, Bastoni returns to music with The Wishing Hour (January 2017), an impressive new record produced by hit Nashville songwriter and producer Felix McTeigue (Lori McKenna/Anais Mitchell/Martin Sexton). The album features Bastoni’s longtime friend and collaborator, Red Sox organist Josh Kantor, as well as guest appearances by New West recording artists The Mastersons, singer Kelly Hogan (Neko Case/The Decemberists), Lula Wiles' Ellie Buckland, and John O’Reilly, Jr. (Mandy Moore/Jason Mraz).

While some of the elements of the album were recorded in different studios in New York and Nashville, all of the basic tracks at the heart of the record were recorded on a laptop in a corner of the the kids’ playroom of her Watertown, MA house in the wee hours of the night.

The ten tracks on this record -- including standouts "It’s the Staying that Hurts,""Weightless" and "Wichita" -- are a collection of starkly honest, beautifully crafted, and ultimately uplifting timeless Americana songs.

In the past, Bastoni has shared the stage with artists including Arlo Guthrie, Lori McKenna, Regina Spektor, and Little Big Town.
