Sister act still has a lot of Heart

Ann & Nancy Wilson

Ann & Nancy Wilson

Kansas.com: Ann, the older sister and primary vocalist, stops short of claiming the title but will allow: “There’s a good chance we might go down as the most famous blond and brunette rock and roll sisters in the late 20th and early 21st century.”

Q: You’re pretty active and opinionated on social media. Is that something new?
A: It’s been going on for a while. I’d say my husband (Wilson married community developer Dean Wetter in April) has been an influence on me about speaking out about how I feel. He is very much an activist, and he cares a lot about the planet, and I think I’ve been inspired to go ahead and speak directly on what I feel.

NEW HEART SONG! “TWO”


Tulsa got the premiere of a new Heart song this week. It is called “Two”. It has been written by “Ne-Yo” (I think), so there’s the Nancy connection: “Ne-Yo” writes for the TV show “Empire”. Nancy’s husband Geoff handles the music for this show.

Hollywood Bowl Recap

I hope you guys were there

I hope you guys were there

OCRegister: “Heart right there with greatest rock acts of generation at Hollywood Bowl” […] “Halfway through their 90-minute set, Heart made the case that they also have the best vocals in rock.” […] But ultimately, from her mesmerizing flute playing on “Dreamboat Annie,” to the show-stopping high notes of “Stairway to Heaven,” Ann Wilson’s star would shine the brightest.


Stairway To Heaven with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra


You gotta check out the perfect wail! Nancy Wilson on mandolin sings beautiful lead on These Dreams followed by spine-tingling performance of Alone by lead vocalist Ann Wilson. Heart power ballads are inspired by the fine orchestral arrangements of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conduced by Thomas Wilkins in first of two concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA August 21, 2015.

TheLosAngelesBeat.com: If you really studied Page, you saw he held the guitar just a bit lower than the other players, he swung it around himself in a way that can’t be put into words. He had a swagger. Nancy Wilson has that swagger. She always did. […] As for the musicality, it’s great that time has done little to dampen the voices of Heart, in the way you would see this with their progenitors. Their voices sound as vibrant as ever, the keys are still the same and Heart still puts on a fun show. Good job ladies!

Many more vids right here!

TODAY: www.theannwilsonthing.com

Today, Monday August 10th 2015, Ann Wilson is expected to launch the website of “The Ann Wilson Thing”. The exact time is unknown, so keep checking:

The Ann Wilson Thing Website
(edit 8/11/2015: IT HAS LAUNCHED!)

Besides the website, we may get more information about the EP that will be released before the first liveshow of “The Ann Wilson Thing”. Demand for the live shows is high as several have sold out and second shows are being added.

In the meantime “The Ann Wilson Thing” will be playing in Las Vegas this week under the obscure stagename “Heart”. The band will bring out Ann Wilson’s sister Nancy as a special guest. The setlist will be more rock than the usual blues and soul that “The Ann Wilson Thing” is famed for throughout the world.

Updated August 11th: That other band did change everything over at their website as well. Plus, on Facebook Ann has posted she and Craig are almost finished with the final mixes for the EP. The EP will get a physical release as well.

The new Heart-music.com features a bunch of new pix from Ann & special guest Nancy (all from the 2014 Norman Seeff shoot):
