The Wonder Well picks up where John's 2012 release The Fire in the Flint left off, this time adding some new styles and musical textures: from the soulful smooth jazz guitar of "Never Alone," to the powerful and evocative electronic/world grooves of "Unbounded" and "Window to the West."
As on all of his releases, John’s multi-instrumental talents are complimented by the luscious, layered vocals of Daya - including the inspired and uplifting songs "In Spiritus" and “If A Rose Could Speak."

I only discovered John's music a couple of months ago. Since then I have listened to all of his albums and each one is filled with songs that each have a unique sound. The arrangements are perfection itself. Every song sounds so polished and complete, and provides me with a very fulfilling listening experience, whether I am working, exercising, or meditating.
Every time I put this in, I know I am going to really listen. Because I don't want to miss a second, a single note. Each song is immaculate in its own way. Sometimes a new CD takes a while to get used to, to work into actually liking it. Not this. It is like immediate chocolate. You can play it over and over and over and never get tired of it.
John Adorney has for years been among the most popular artists on New Age Stars Radio. No other artist has had so many no. 1 positions, in front of artists like Enya, Mike Oldfield and Enigma. John is now out with a brand new album called The Wonder Well. So to celebrate this, we decided to dedicate the next three weeks – from 13 March to 3 April – to the music of John Adorney.
