371 – Scot Sax of Wanderlust – New Album, All a View

Originally from Philadelphia, Wanderlust emerged in 1995 with a major label album called Prize, which garnered the rock radio hit “I Walked.”  The band was working on album number two when they were unceremoniously dropped.  In the years that followed, leader Scot Sax focused on writing songs, co-writing the Grammy-winning song “Like We Never Loved at All” for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. He’s also become a much sought-after filmmaker, directing the documentary Platinum Rush. 

During the pandemic, Sax was combing through his archives and stumbled across a DAT tape of acoustic demos he was working on during the band’s heyday.  He decided to get his bandmates back together (at least virtually) and complete the album – taking his original vocals and guitars from 1996 and adding present day instrumentation over top.  The result is All a View, an  album that features the classic, melodic sound of Wanderlust, circa the mid-90’s, with a modern-day punch.
