Brian Wilson announces solo piano album

Brian Wilson presents At My Piano featuring solo and Beach Boys hits performed on piano

Brian Wilson has set At My Piano for release on November 19th via Decca Records. The album features Wilson performing a selection of his and The Beach Boys’ catalogue solo on the piano.

“We had an upright piano in our living room and from the time I was 12 years old I played it each and every day. I never had a lesson, I was completely self-taught,” Wilson shares. “I can’t express how much the piano has played such an important part in my life. It has bought me comfort, joy and security. It has fueled my creativity as well as my competitive nature. I play it when I’m happy or feeling sad. I love playing for people and I love playing alone when no one is listening. Honestly, the piano and the music I create on it has probably saved my life.”

At My Piano is a deeply relaxing collection of memorable songs that include “God Only Knows,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” and many more, performed with the lucid clarity that a solo piano composition creates.

Wilson spearheaded a musical revolution as founding member of The Beach Boys. The band who, since 1961 have epitomized the sound of California, surfing and sunshine. Often called a genius for his novel approaches to pop composition, extraordinary musical aptitude, and mastery of recording techniques, he is widely acknowledged as one of the most innovative and significant songwriters of the 20th century.
