Smash star Megan Hilty will celebrate the release of her debut album It Happens All The Time with an intimate evening at Joe’s Pub where the Broadway star of Wicked and 9 To 5: The Musical will perform a brief preview of her new album followed by a meet-and-greet and signing with fans. Produced by Grammy-winners Andy Zulla and Jimmy Hogarth, It Happens All The Time showcases a different side of Megan Hilty. The repertoire is a significant step outside of both the musical theater world in which she initially found fame as well as her television character Ivy Lynn in Smash. Songs featured on It Happens All The Time include Hilty’s fresh interpretations of compositions by stellar contemporary songwriters as Aimee Mann and Damien Rice. Also noteworthy are new songs by writers such as Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Duffy), Wayne Hector (James Morrison, One Direction), Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette, Wilson Phillips), Ne-Yo and Carrie Underwood. For Hilty, the key to her debut album was finding songs that she could identify with. “Stylistically these aren’t the type of songs that I’m used to singing. It was exciting and challenging, for example, to take a song written by Ne-Yo and make it my own,” says Hilty. Of the original songs on It Happens All The Time, Hilty cites “Be A Man” as “one of the ultimate breakup songs. It begs someone to tell you how they really feel and that the relationship is over.” She also points to “Walk Away” (co-written by Ne-Yo, Carrie Underwood and Luke Laird) for its message of empowerment in the face of a painful breakup. Keeping with the theme of new beginnings, “No Cure” is unique to the rest of the album in that co-writer Hector joined her on vocals, giving it the feel of a duet, which Hilty loved. When taken together, the songs on It Happens All The Time instill great pride in Hilty as “the first recording that’s just me. It’s really thrilling to hear and I can’t wait to share it with my fans.”
