Widely regarded as one of the greatest voices in the history of rock and roll, Ann Wilson is a true icon, known far and wide as lead singer and songwriter of the groundbreaking rock band HEART. Led by Wilson‘s extraordinary vocal power, HEART has thrilled audiences for over four decades, earning sales of more than 35 million and well-deserved induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013. Indeed, as lead singer of the first female-fronted superstar hard rock band, Wilson blazed a trail for generations of women to come, while her songs — including “Barracuda”“Crazy On You”“Straight O” and “Magic Man”, to name but a few — have become part of the very fabric of popular culture.

Wilson made her stellar solo debut with 2007’s “Hope & Glory”, showcasing inventive covers of songs that inspired her own artistry alongside guest appearances from such friends and fans as Elton JohnK.D. LangAlison KraussWynonna JuddShawn Colvin and Rufus Wainwright. Her critically acclaimed second solo album, 2018’s “Immortal”, saw her teaming with longtime HEART producer Mike Flicker to put her unique stamp on songs made famous by David BowieLeonard CohenTom PettyAmy Winehouse and more. A series of remarkable single releases have followed, including “The Revolution Starts Now” (written and originally recorded by Steve Earle) and Wilson‘s own mighty soul ballad “Tender Heart”, earning applause from such high-profile media outlets as Rolling StoneAmerican Songwriter and Goldmine“The Hammer” and “Black Wing” were also released shortly after.

As creatively energized as ever before, Wilson is currently working on additional new music and plans to return to the road as soon as possible, bringing her one-of-a-kind voice and classic songs to stages everywhere.
