Heart Sisters Ann & Nancy Wilson’s Side Projects You Might Not Know About!

A Heart-filled weekend is coming to AXS TV June 29th-30th!

Get ready for a Heart-filled weekend! The iconic female-fronted band Heart will be featured on AXS TV Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th! Besides continuing to rock out and going on tour with many other female artists, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame® inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson have many things they’ve been working on. In honor of the upcoming Heart-filled weekend on AXS TV, we’ve compiled a list of side projects that these iconic sisters have going on that will make you “Heart” them even more!

The Wilson Sisters Are Children’s Book Authors

The Wilson sisters took a break from music and wrote a Children’s Book titled Dog & Butterfly in 2014. The book was named after their album, Dog & Butterfly, which went triple-platinum and spent 36 weeks on the top charts after its release. The book is also illustrated by Ann Wilson and is described as “a tender tale about dreams and friendship for kids of all ages.”

Ann’s Voice Provides the Soundtrack for Many Iconic Films

Have you ever listened to “Almost Paradise” from Footloose, “Best Man in the World” from Golden Child, or “Surrender to Me” from Tequila Sunrise and thought you heard a familiar voice? That’s because it’s the voice of Ann Wilson! Ann shares her gifted voice with the world in many classic films and is featured on many film soundtracks.


Ann Has Been Doing Some Solo Work

Speaking of sharing her voice with the world, Ann released her solo album called IMMORTAL in 2018 which pays tribute to the artists who have influenced Ann throughout her career and honors her friends who have passed away. She has been performing solo as well and even went on tour with Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers for the “Stars Align Tour”.


Nancy Has Also Been Working in the Film Industry

Nancy decided to take her songwriting talent and innate ability to connect with an audience through music to the film industry. She has years of experience being on filmmaking teams and she has composed music for many films including the Cameron Crowe films: Say Anything, Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, Elizabethtown, and Jerry Maguire. She has also accumulated many film nominations for best score, music, and composer for her work in Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, and Elizabethtown.

Nancy Started a New Band

Nancy teamed up with Liv Warfield, former Prince’s New Power Generation band member and R&B singer, to form the band Roadcase Royale. The rock power duo released their first album, First Things First, in 2017 and opened for Bob Seger on his farewell tour.


Luckily for Us, They Still Play Together As Heart

In addition to being involved in these side projects and supporting nearly one-hundred charities, Heart has continued to capture audiences and produce brilliant music throughout the years. Tune in to AXS TV the weekend of June 29th to watch Heart perform and capture us with their talented instrumentals and powerful voices.
