“In March 2020, while focusing on the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys’ Sunflower album, I was moved by the poignancy of the message and lyrics of the album’s “Add Some Music To Your Day”. Inspired by this, I thought that combining members of The Beach Boys with the next generations of voices (the children of The Beach Boys) was the perfect way to bring attention to a charity during these challenging times. As 2020 concluded, I became painfully aware of the number of people struggling to feed their families, so I chose Feeding America as the charity recipient.”—David Beard

“The world could come together as one” – these lyrics are from the 1970 Beach Boys composition “Add Some Music To Your Day” and they are the inspiration for the latest Omnivore Recordings release California Music Presents Add Some Music. Founded by Beach Boys historian and documentarian David Beard, California Music Presents Add Some Music is an uplifting collection of recordings celebrating all that is good about one of California’s greatest exports… music!
In 2020, David Beard re-recorded the classic 1970 Beach Boys song “Add Some Music To Your Day” (written by Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Joe Knott) with Beach Boys members Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks and the children of The Beach Boys including Carnie and Wendy Wilson (Brian Wilson’s daughters), Christian, Hayleigh and Ambha Love (Mike Love’s children) and Matt Jardine (Al Jardine’s son and member of the Brian Wilson Band), and Justyn Wilson (the late Carl Wilson’ son). Their brilliant new rendering of “Add Some Music To Your Day” was arranged and produced by Rob Bonfiglio (member of the Brian Wilson Band and husband to Carnie Wilson).
Filling out this 10-track collection are recordings by Mike Love, David Marks, longtime Beach Boys associate, Jeffrey Foskett as well as new music from Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and Rob Bonfiglio. A portion of the proceeds of this release will be donated to Feeding America® (www.feedingamerica.org).
“Gathering together these incredible talents in order to help those in need is as good as it gets, and when it comes to the music of The Beach Boys, it makes sense. We get to listen to music while helping others. It’s ventures like this one that make the future a little brighter.”
