Musical genius never dies and sometimes, it bears fruit. Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys sired beautifully gifted sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson; while John and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas brought into this world the stunning and fierce artistry of Chynna Phillips. This synergy of talent came to be, as we know today as Wilson Phillips.
Wilson Phillips is considered one of the hallmarks of music in the 90s. Over and above their string of hook-laden songs, their signature vocal harmonies, sophisticated girl-power appeal, and their musical lineage were their core strengths that propelled them to super stardom.
Their self-titled debut album alone, which churned out three hit singles that brought them to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100, sold over 10 million copies worldwide. The single “Hold On” bagged them a win at the Billboard Music Award as Hot 100 Single of the Year, plus five Grammy and two American Music Awards nominations.
After a brief hiatus in 2003, they went back to the studio in 2004 to record a new album of cover songs, with a Fleetwood Mac cover of “Go Your Own Way”, as their comeback single. From 2008 to present, Wilson Phillips continues to be a fixture in the recording and live concert scenes. Their most recent album “Dedicated” is a compilation of cover songs from The Beach Boys and The Mamas and The Papas.
