He is one of popular music�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 gifted and influential pop composers of the last 50 years.
Wilson�s songwriting, arranging and producing talents came together in harmonious glory for The Beach Boys� 1966 classic, Pet Sounds, and have continued to evolve during his solo career, highlighted by his 2004 critically acclaimed Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE. Releasing hits such as "Surfin," "Sloop John B," "Help Me, Rhonda" and "California Girls," the Beach Boys were like an irresistibly refreshing wave that flooded America and Brian Wilson himself rode that sparkling swell.
Ultimately, it is a most profound resurgence of a legendary career - a San Francisco Chronicle reviewer wrote, "The Brian Wilson concert was one of the most moving and inspirational events in recent memory for me." The Hollywood Reporter chimed in with "A long-awaited ray of light," while the Los Angeles Times pronounced, "Wilson stood triumphant." The man and his music have the power to take an audience beyond mere nostalgia, to reach across generations and deliver a musical experience that is timeless and unforgettable.
