Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress and film producer, her most recent projects have all been connected to her passion for music. After achieving her dream in 2012 with the critically acclaimed album AM/FM – an intimate, elegant, and beautifully sung collection of classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s – Wilson has been focusing on a new component of her musical career as a songwriter. Recently, she has collaborated with a number of talented and successful songwriters, composing original material featured on her second album, self-titled ‪Rita Wilson‬. Her new album Halfway to Home (March 2019) has a fuller sound: Southern California rock meets Nashville country, co-produced by Rita Wilson and ‪Nathan Chapman‬ with additional production from Ron Aniello and ‪John Shanks‬. Many of the songs were co-written with an A-List group of songwriters, including Grammy winner ‪Liz Rose‬, ‪Kristian Bush‬ of ‪Sugarland‬, ‪Mozella‬, ‪Mitch Allan‬, and ‪Kara DioGuardi.

Thank you for this song! Celebrate life! Dance and sing. One of my favorite things is listening to my mother play piano, which she still does, she is 94 years old. I sing, but mostly listen. Joy!

Wow. I had no idea and I am so very impressed with this talk and her talent. I turned 53 this past Jan and studied acting in L.A. went to school with the likes of Paul Rudd etc…I've known Rita by reputation, she is just a lovely woman. I moved back to Vancouver for a family tragedy in my mid twenties just as I was getting to know some pretty great Agents and on my way – yep stopped and went back home and never left. I did do some cool things in my time, I too am a song-writer and fronted my own band for years, but basically gave up on my "what do I want" questions long ago. At 36 I had a baby, she changed my life and I just couldn't do the "bar" scene and band life anymore. A wife, a mom and not altogether always happy; ran a home-daycare (not glamorous I tell ya, but fun and HARD too) to be with my girl and then admin jobs with primarily horrible bosses. Why? Why oh why is that? Ugh. Anyway, 20 yrs down the road, still healthy knock on wood one day at a time, COVID19 is here and I write this in Vancouver during the State of Emergency and cases rising each day – oh my, anxiety attacks? I'm a trained actor, I don't get anxiety? So, I wanted to know if my beloved favourite actor, Tom Hanks and his wife were doing alright…found myself here. 20 yrs on, sometimes downright sad and just sorta living. I have love, but I have very little "joy" I realized, but tonight, I'm asking myself…WHAT DO I WANT now and be patient and await the answer. I feel as if I may know 😉 but I'm gonna go easy with myself and take some baby steps to hopefully find out. I get this little pang in my heart lately as I've been watching Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas in the great Netflix show, The Kominsky Method. A drop in theatre class perhaps? Yes, perhaps. THANKS RITA…YOU GOT THIS and beautiful song (it is on the list for my Celebration of Life one day). I hope folks don't mind me sharing here…weird times and I need to communicate. Bless you one and all. xo

It is only a humans view or opinion, No good high notes, flat in many spots and cracks in vocals because the vocals are not there, and weak in many spots. 1/2 of each song sung is kind of ok, not too bad. I am not trying to be mean, or opinionated, or even cruel. , not cruelty or fact, by any means, only what I hear. ….. God bless her, at least she is doin it and enjoying the career. Good on ya from the outback mate!!!
