Heart singer sets off to do 'the Ann Wilson Thing'
But don't worry! Heart is definitely NOT broken.
Ann Wilson, the multi-talented songwriter and vocalist known for such hits as "Crazy on You," "Barracuda" and "Alone," is currently on a limited engagement tour with the Ann Wilson Thing. Don't worry. The Ann Wilson Thing is not a replacement for Heart, but a unique opportunity for Heart fans to have an up close and personal look at Ann’s foray into the blues and to hear her explore musical genres that don’t fit into the typical Heart repertoire.
I spoke with Ann about her music, the Ann Wilson Thing, the changes in the record business, and her thoughts on modern music. So let’s “Shake, Rattle & Know”: Ann Wilson
QUESTION: How different is it for you to take the stage each night without the comfort of having your sister and the rest of Heart beside you?
ANSWER: It is very different, but in a good way. It is exciting and fresh. I do have some band members from Heart along with me for the solo project, so I am not entirely starting new. I like it, though, because there is no one else to lean on now, when I am doing TAWT (the Ann Wilson Thing), it is all on me.
