Overview

The debut album from the star of the hit musical TV drama series, Smash. Produced by Grammy®-winners Andy Zulla and Jimmy Hogarth, It Happens All the Time features Hilty’s fresh interpretations of songs by contemporary songwriters Aimee Mann, Sara Barielles, Bruno Mars and Damien Rice and also features new songs by Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Duffy), Wayne Hector (James Morrison, One Direction), Glen Ballard (Alanis Morrisette, Wilson Phillips), Ne-Yo and Carrie Underwood. The repertoire is a big step beyond both the musical theater world where Hilty initially found fame, as Glinda in Wicked and Doralee Rhodes in 9 to 5: The Musical, and her TV character Ivy Lynn in the Golden Globe® nominated series, Smash, which returns for its second season on NBC in February

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
When It Happens All the Time was released, Megan Hilty was best known for her showstopping turns in Broadway productions including Wicked and 9 to 5: The Musical, as well as her role as Ivy Lynn on NBC's musical-within-a-musical TV series Smash. However, the songs she chose for her debut album weren't show tunes or standards, they were contemporary pop with a capital P: a glance at the liner notes reveals songwriting credits for Ne-Yo, Carrie Underwood, and Glen Ballard. Highlights include the airy "Hopin'," the Ne-Yo and Underwood-penned "Walk Away," and the single "No Cure," which is one of the best examples of when this album gets the balance of intimacy and polish right. "Wise Up" is another standout, with Aimee Mann's subtle songwriting allowing Hilty to deliver one of the album's most sophisticated vocal performances. As always, Hilty is a dynamic performer with a beautiful voice, and "Dare You to Move" and "Be a Man" showcase her powerhouse vocals particularly well.
