American noted family, one of Brian and Marilyn Wilson's two daughters. In 1989 she played in the band "Wilson Phillips" with sister Carrie and singer Chynna Phillips. The band received three Grammy nominations in 1991 and released an album entitled "Shadows And Light," in 1992, which sold 1.4 million copies; their debut LP sold eight million copies. However, the band was defunct by 1994.
Her parents were divorced in 1979 and she had a cool relationship with her father. He was very caring when she and her sister Carrie were little kids but only called twice a year by 1991. She and her sister are close, with the same tastes. Wendy and Carnie released a Christmas album together in 1993, and an album called The Wilsons in 1997, with their formerly estranged father, Brian.
In 2004, Wendy reunited with Carnie and Phillips for a third Wilson Phillips album, California. In 2012, the reunited Wilson Phillips released the album, Dedicated, which comprised covers of songs by The Beach Boys and The Mamas & the Papas. In June 2012, Wendy joined her sister Carnie and other members of the Beach Boys' families to form the vocal group, California Saga, which performed at the intermission during the homecoming Hollywood Bowl show of the Beach Boys' 50th anniversary tour.
Wilson married record producer/sound engineer Daniel Knutson on May 24, 2002, in the rose garden of the Ritz-Carlton in Marina Del Rey. They have four sons: Leo Evan Knutson (b. September 14, 2003), Beau Alexander Knutson (b. September 23, 2004), and twins, Will Hunter and Jesse Miles Knutson (b. August 17, 2007).
