Video: Rockerrazzi Interview with Ann & Nancy

Heart just added this Rockerrazzi interview with Ann and Nancy at the Grammy Museum from May 24th to their YouTube channel =D

Nancy Interview - KSHE95 (w/Audio Clip)


Heart will be barnstorming across North America this summer in support of their upcoming studio album Red Velvet Car and its accompanying live DVD, which will be released on August 31st. The band, featuring sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, will play five Lilith dates with Sarah McLachlan starting on July 5th in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheatre.

Nancy Wilson told us that Heart has always opted on being an active creative force -- rather than playing it safe by just being a touring nostalgia act: "Y'know you're really driven -- I think if you're an artistic soul, then you're driven to do your art; And if you only care money, then you're not. Then you're driven to only tour and do the old hits forever, y'know? I think we're pretty artistic about it. We're really happy to still be able to enjoy going out and playing live as well as be creative and be writers."

Here's a snippet of the new radio interview Nancy did with KSHE95 =)

Rock N Roll Ghost: Reno Review

Great review on the Reno show =D

Live Review: Heart – Reno Events Center – Reno, NV

Call it nostalgia or just maybe a resurgence of late but Heart is back in a big way. The ladies Wilson have never chased trends and have somehow always seemed cool. Which is how music should be. When you have a sister team that features one of the best rock singers we’ve ever seen and a fiery locked guitar goddess who unleashes monster riffs from the school of James Page, success should be a given.

Taking the stage to the sounds of Queen the band took their places and joined in on the track before taking it over. As the real Queens (Ann and Nancy) finally appeared, they segued into a bellowing “Heartless”. Sticking to their more familiar numbers they got everyone on their feet for an unusually funky take on “Straight On”, a blistering “Barracuda” and a trip back into time with “Dog and Butterfly” that oozed just the right amount of pixie dust.

This time around they debuted three songs for their next release Red Velvet Car and while the title track seemed stock the other two tracks “WTF” and “In The Cool” will no doubt make their way onto set lists for years to come. “WTF” scraped grunge licks against Ann’s ethereal howl and showed that their time jamming with Alice in Chains was mutually beneficial. I wouldn’t be surprised if, in fact, the idea was born out of those performances with the fellow Seattle band and the Wilsons pulled it out recently in the wake of their reunion. At the other end of the spectrum was “In The Cool”, a mellower tale that had just enough twang that it recalled Nanci Griffith and will fit nicely in their Lilith Fair set later this year.

Still, the crowd wanted more hits and got them as Nancy took the lead for “These Dreams”, while Ann had a few thousand join in on “Never” and ended things with everyone dancing to “Magic Man”.
They encored with Led Zeppelin’s “What Is and What Should Never Be” and left us with “Crazy on You”. In a night full of highlights, it would be hard for anyone to eclipse their performance of “Even It Up”, which was teased by a bit of “Gimme Shelter” before hand. The Rolling Stones classic was seamlessly segued into the band’s own song, with the Wilsons giving the audience an old school mash up, punctuating their classic tune with the Stones lyric ” it’s just a shot away”. After all these years these songs have endured because of these two talented ladies who have a bond and trust that could only be attained through sisterly love.

Legendary Acts Converge on SETX this Summer

Get ready for a taste of good old fashioned rock 'n roll because two great bands will pair up for a co-headlining performance in Southeast Texas later this summer.

"In addition to recording so many hit songs, both of these groups have greatly influenced future generations of music," said John Hughes, general manager of Ford Park, in a press release. "We are excited to bring these two legendary bands together in Ford Arena."

Motley Sue on Gimme Shelter/Even It Up

How did the mash up of Gimme Shelter and Even It Up come about?

"[Ann] told Sue [Ennis] about the Gimme Shelter/Even it Up mash up that they performed in Reno. She was singing the parts to Sue...and her response was... who thought of that? Ann's reply - Nancy and I were laying in our bunks on the bus and started talking about it."

Just had to share that =D So cute!!

Legacy Recordings Announces the Release of Heart's Red Velvet Car


Legacy Recasting Classic Heart Catalog
For New Physical & Digital Editions

Legacy Recordings proudly announces the release of Red Velvet Car, the first new studio album in six years from the groundbreaking Seattle-based band Heart, available everywhere on Tuesday, August 31.

The release of Red Velvet Car heralds Legacy's forthcoming reissues of the classic Heart catalog in new physical and digital editions.

For their first new album since 2004's Jupiter's Darling, the first ladies of arena rock took an acoustic approach to a collection of songs inspired by the world around them, arranged for an assortment of strings including guitar, mandolin, dobro, banjo, fiddle, viola, cello and autoharp, all played by Nancy Wilson and the album's producer, Grammy winner Ben Mink.

Nine of the album's songs were written for, and appear for the first time on Red Velvet Car. The album's closer, "Sand," is a newly recorded version of a song originally written and recorded by the Lovemongers, Ann and Nancy's 1990's acoustic side project.

Tracks on Red Velvet Car include "Death Valley," "Safronia's Mark," "Red Velvet Car," "Queen City," "Sunflower," "Wheels," "There You Go," "WTF," "Hey You" and "Sand."

Red Velvet Car marks the return of Heart to the Sony Music Entertainment family. Heart's last Sony-related release was 1983's Passionworks on Epic Records.
"It feels good to have Sony Music holding our new baby. It's sort of like coming home, since we worked with them on Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly, Bebe le Strange, Private Audition and Passionworks, among others," said Ann Wilson. "We're excited about taking it on the road. A fresh sound with all the original Heart magic."
"This album feels so right for the times," said Nancy Wilson. "We can't wait to share this one with the world!"
Heart will be performing songs from Red Velvet Car, as well as classics from the band's repertoire, at selected Lilith Fair dates and in headline concerts across the U.S. and Canada from July through September. Tour details available on the Heart website.
