Brian Wilson

Brain Wilson is one of rock's most deeply revered figures, a legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer of some of the most cherished music in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential pop composers of the last 50 years.

Labor Day weekend, 1961, in Hawthorne, California It was then and there that nineteen-year-old Brian Douglas Wilson and his younger brothers Dennis and Carl assembled in their family's living room with cousin Mike Love and friend Al Jardine to rehearse a little tune that Brian and Mike had written for a try-out recording session.

”Wilson's That Lucky Old Sun, his most ambitious new work since returning from the wilderness, [recalling] “Pet Sounds” and “Smile,” not least in its playfully baroque arrangements — a playground riot of glockenspiel, timpani, strings and harmonies all played with a smile — and melodic nods to the Beach Boy canon, complementing the autobiographical bent of the lyric-book.”
Reviewing the London performance, England's Mojo magazine.

”Brian Wilson is an iconic talent with enormous musical influence all over the world and we are very proud to be representing him.”
Guy Hands, executive chairman of Capitol's parent company, EMI Music.
