As the visionary songwriter and producer of The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson created some of the landmark recordings of the 1960s, including Pet Sounds and the legendarily unreleased Smile, and generally brought the sunny, harmony laden “California Sound” to listeners around the world. Although mental illness and a string of personal problems sidelined Wilson for large parts of the 1970s and 80s, in recent years the singer and musician and has made a miraculous return to stability and creativity, even completing the infamous Smile project in 2004. Most recently, Wilson signed to Walt Disney Records with plans for two albums, a disc of songs by George and Ira Gershwin and a collection of “Brian-ized” versions of classic Disney songs.
