Wilshire is the singer-songwriter duo Lori and Micah, who met as session players
in Nashville. Texas native Lori and Virginian Micah knew their solo careers were
over the first time they sang harmony together. Local gigs playing covers gave
way to collaboration on originals. Soon they packed up their belongings and
drove to L.A. After months of honing their material on the West Coast's open-mic
and college circuits they landed at Columbia records. Their melodic Pop-Rock
sound is influenced by the Beatles, classic soul and Top 40 Pop. Both Lori and
Micah write, sing and play guitar.
Their brand of Adult/Pop/Rock with a "southern grit" has been compared to the
likes of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. The songs showcase their amazing
sense of harmony and their talents as incredible musicians.
Their Columbia Records debut album, New Universe, which they co-produced with
David Tickle (U2, Prince), was recorded at L.A.'s Sunset Sound in Sherman Oaks
and at Avalon in Kauai, Hawaii. The album was mixed by Joe Zook at Eldorado in
Album includes the hit single "Special," produced by Wilshire and mixed for
radio by Tom Lord-Alge, a driving track with an expansive chorus that showcases
the pair's soaring harmonies. Its yearning theme arose from the many part-time
jobs that helped pay their bills while they tried to "make it" in L.A. "We
needed some 'looking for a hallelujah' thing to keep us going, something special
to hold on to," explains Lori. "The words that song are about finding your
purpose, finding freedom and joy."
