Brian Wilson is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call him one of the most influential composers of the last century.

Wilson’s remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. Barely out of his teens, Wilson began to create some of the most beloved records ever with nine consecutive “gold” albums that featured such classics as “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Help Me Rhonda” and “California Girls,” just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits he co-wrote, arranged, produced, and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys.

Wilson’s ground-breaking work on the album Pet Sounds and the single “Good Vibrations” re-wrote the rules of what a pop album or single could be. His solo record SMiLE, released in 2004, had been anticipated by music fans since the late 1960s. Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and a multiple-GRAMMY Award-winner. With The Beach Boys, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. Wilson continues to dazzle audiences with his lyrical and harmonic masterpieces, old and new.
