Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson has revealed plans to embark on a tour without her sister and singer Ann Wilson.
Speaking to Joe Rock of Long Island, New York’s 102.3 WBAB radio station, Nancy revealed the reason behind naming her new band Nancy Wilson’s Heart.
The new band features Nancy’s longtime collaborators, guitarist Ryan Waters, drummer Ben Smith, bassist Andy Stoller and keyboardist Dan Walker, along with “The Voice” finalist Kimberly Nichole.
“Heart had a big offer on the table last year for a bigger tour, but Ann wasn’t interested in going out with my lineup of guys that we were out with before. She has a new lineup of guys that she wanted me to join up with. And I sort of [thought] I don’t really know them and don’t have loyalty yet for anybody like that,” she said.
“So I just kind of shined it on and decided when I do go out with my new singer Kimberly, I can telegraph to the people coming to the show that they’re gonna hear Heart songs in a whole different way than ever expected with. No comparison to Ann singing or Kimberly singing those same songs, just because it’s apples and oranges; you can’t compare that stuff,” Nancy added. “So I figure that’s a way to let them know that it’s not just Nancy Wilson of Heart doing whatever, but it’s Nancy Wilson’s Heart where you’re gonna hear more Heart stuff.”
Nancy also revealed that “there’s an offer from Styx for me to take my band out, with Kimberly.” She added that they are trying to put some dates together in September.
