Biography

Bodhi’s Wish consists of singer/songwriter Michael Pickard and drummer Sean Tatarian, who first became friends during high school in Marin County, California. Michael had grown up playing drums and listening to heavy metal and rock, but after discovering an old acoustic guitar and dusty book of folk music in his parents’ garage, he began learning songs and soon gave up his kit and began delving into works from John Lennon to Bob Dylan, with influences coming from contemporaries such as Conor Oberst, Sufjan Stevens and Arcade Fire - all the while honing his own unique voice.

In 2013, Michael and Sean reunited as musicians, jamming informally in San Francisco. Around the same time, the alternate identity known as “Dr.Twiz” developed, fusing Michael’s love of music with the Bay Area improv scene, the result being songs which are equal parts comedy, hip hop, absurdism and “Twiz.” Ultimately, Sean and Michael collaborated on their first album “Lost and Found,” combining experimental rock and indie pop to form hauntingly soulful yet catchy tunes. The work reflects a time of personal and spiritual crisis, along with the hope and transcendence that is forged out of darkness.

Feel this movement in my soul

Comets Unforgettable

Written By: Michael Pickard

Comets Unforgettable

In a vision comets unforgettable
Tell me not to walk away
In a vision comets unforgettable
They tell me not to walk away

With my head up I saw you in a valley
I was blind to all you were
With my head up I saw you in a valley
I was blind to all you were

Weeping hollow I slipped into a coma
Won’t you hold my hands if I hold yours?
Weeping hollow I slipped into a coma
Won’t you hold my hands if I hold yours?

In a vision comets unforgettable
Tell me not to walk away
In a vision comets unforgettable
They tell me not to walk away

Lightness, Felt

Written By: Michael Pickard

Lightness, can you feel it?
When it comes
Lightness, can you feel it?
In your bones

Lightness, can you feel it?
When it comes
Lightness, can you feel it?
In your bones

Come back to me
Come Back to me
Now

Honest Day

Written By: Michael Pickard

Telling Sky
Where do we begin?
When we’re miles and miles
Seem so far away
Seem so far away

Running through the neverends
Caught inside this wheel
Just take one step
And we’re off again
And we’re off again

I walked in my heart
It’s happening
I see it in the past
As it disappears

Honest day
Singing through the storm
How it knows
Where we always are
Hold me up and show
Let me fall in
Shedding this skin again
Coming to an end

I walked in my heart
It’s happening
I see it in the past
As it disappears
As it disappears

Oh My...

Written By: Michael Pickard

Oh my...
Oh my...
Oh my god
Oh my…
Oh my…
Oh my god
