Wanderlust was an American power pop band of the mid-1990s based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.



Scot Sax, a native of Philadelphia, had been playing and writing songs since the age of 13, and had actually performed with fellow Philadelphian Rob Bonfiglio a number of times. The lineup was filled by rhythm members Mark Levin, on bass, and Jim Cavanaugh, on drums, and Wanderlust was formed.[1]

Prize (1995)

In 1994, the band began recording a demo at Tongue & Groove Studios in Philadelphia with engineer, Mike Musmano. Before the demo was completed the band was signed with RCA. The full length album, Prize, was released in April 1995 to positive critical reviews.[2] In 1997 the band returned to the studio to record a second album, but was dropped from the label and the record was never completed. The unfinished second album was later released by Not Lame.[1]
