62 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 10 - October t6, 1997 ARTS &amp; ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out I Juliet's Wishing Well in new territory with CD in progress By Jen Ellingsworth On the heels of its most recent CD, "High Fashion," Wilmington- based band Juliet's Wishing Well has been on the road and in the studio, putting the wraps on its lat- est EP, titled "Embrace." Working with producer Robin Darter (who has also collaborated with bands like Rusted Root and Good Homes), the group has taken a new approach to its latest pro- ject. Bass player Lou Lasprugato, one of Juliet's Wishing Well's founding members, said the disc is completely different. "We did a lot of experimenta- tion on this new CD," he said. "We used different sounds, differ- ent effects and different approach- es. We wanted to try to be less pre- dictable." With "High Fashion" nearing the 2,000 mark for copies sold, the band can rest assured its followers are hungry for more. The six-song "Embrace" may be just what the doctor ordered. "It's definitely different from our last CD," said Lasprugato. "It's a lot more fuller sounding and has much more of an edge." Mastered in New York at Absolute Audio studios, the CD has an estimated release date of early December. Not only has the group been busy with that endeavor, but Juli- et's Wishing Well also said good- bye to longtime guitar player Jim- my Davis. The band recently wel- comed aboard a new guitarist, Eric Levy. Other members include Dan Weisman (lead vocals) and John Ohnmacht (drums). Now approaching its fourth anniversary, Juliet's Wishing Well - although based upstate - per- forms locally in Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach. Fans can catch the guys in action at Arena's Bar and Deli in the Village by the Sea Mall on Saturday, Oct. 11. Check out the band's website <> for pictures and other details.
