Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress (Its Complicated, Sleepless in Seattle, a recurring role in CBSs The Good Wife, HBOs award-winning series, Girls and, most recently on Broadway in Larry Davids smash hit, Fish in the Dark), and as a film producer (Mamma Mia! and its sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and its sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, for which she co-wrote and performed Even More Mine), her first love is music. In May 2012, Wilson realized a lifelong dream with the debut of her solo album AM/FM. The album, released by Decca/Verve Records, is an intimate, elegant and beautifully sung collection of covers of her favorite songs from the 60s and 70s. Since the release of AM/FM, Wilson has been focusing on a new component of her musical career as a songwriter. In March 2016, she released her self-titled second album, showcasing her skill for creating insightful, eloquent singer-songwriter pop music that is etched with stunning honesty. For two years prior to the release, Wilson worked with a host of the finest award-winning and best-selling songwriters and producers in both Los Angeles and Nashville. This new material was prominently featured in her two-week residency at the famed Caf Carlyle in New York City. Ms. Wilson has a catch in her voice that conveys yearning and potential heartbreak behind a faade of cheer. As a stage performer, she is gregarious and forthright; a natural entertainer, said The New York Times. In June 2016, Wilson toured with Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers Chicago, one of the bestselling bands of all time, with over 100 million albums sold.
