Heart’s Ann Wilson Announces Live Solo ‘Passion Project’

Music News

Heart’s Ann Wilson has announced the first two dates of her first mini-solo tour. Wilson posted on the band’s official Heart-Music.com website about her new “passion project” dubbed “The Ann Wilson Thing.” The website posted that the concerts “will give Ann an opportunity to sing songs different from Heart, in intimate venues where she can be up close and personal to the audience. Ann has selected songs she loves from artists and writers she admires, and will bring them to life with her powerful voice and soulful interpretations. The music will run the gamut from blues and soul to rock (of course!!). Just seven shows are planned for 2015.”

So far, the only dates announced for “The Ann Wilson Thing” are October 9th and 10th at Annapolis, Maryland’s Rams Head On Stage.

Heart is currently recording its upcoming album while on the road. Ann Wilson told us that she and sister, guitarist Nancy Wilson, are keeping the excitement alive by recording backing tracks during soundchecks — and even during the shows: “You get then spark of the live performance in the basic track, which is really hard to attain in the studio, y’know? When you’ve got people watching and stopping and starting and isolation booths and all that kind of stuff. It’s hard to get that real, vital spark. Our fantasy deadline for the (end of) recording is October. So, if we get everything recorded by then and we can mix, and, y’know, get the right turnaround, it could be out in ’16.”
