Gracing the stage of the legendary Café Carlyle on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, BMI singer/songwriter Rita Wilson recently kicked off the first evening of another iteration of her Liner Notes series, showcasing a new array of panelists.
Featuring multiple renowned singer/songwriters, the series aims to lift the veil on the songwriting process. During each show, the individual participants preface each song’s performance with the details and stories behind how that song was written, making for a unique evening that is as illuminating and informative as it is entertaining.
Within the elegant confines of Café Carlyle on Tuesday evening, Rita Wilson, who released her third album, Bigger Picture, on September 28, was joined by accomplished peers like GRAMMY-nominated songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGaurdi, Nashville songwriting veteran Tom Douglas, and GRAMMY-winning rocker and former Scandal frontwoman Patty Smyth. Later this week, Wilson will be joined by Semisonic singer/songwriter Dan Wilson and the award-winning Broadway songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
The Liner Notes series runs until October 20. Click here for more details.
