One of the finest voices in classic rock music belongs to Ann Wilson of Heart. I have received periodic mailings about a new album she is working on officially titled Immortal, which appears near completion.
The theme of Immortal focuses on various tracks originally recorded by “artists who have departed in the last several years,” Wilson notes that the album’s name emphasizes an awareness that “the artists have left us, but their expressions live in our hearts for all time.”
The artists honored on Immortal include, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Glenn Frey, Amy Winehouse, and Lesley Gore…
Surprise guests on the record features Jeff Beck on killer guitar! It just so happens that Ann Wilson will be touring with Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers this summer. Synchronicity.
Lots of new music from Ann Wilson and friends in the coming months ahead…

ann wilson, lead-singer of the renowned rock group, heart, returns with her first ever solo ep, entitled the ann wilson thing! – #1.
the project features covers of such legendary artists as aretha franklin, ray charles and buffalo springfield. wilson also co-wrote an all-new original track for the ep, “fool no more”, which she describes as “a heavy blues song about bad love and the fleeting of time.”
in 2007, she released her first solo full length lp through rounder records, hope & glory, which saw her covering some of rock and roll’s greatest heroes. this new ep sees the celebrated rock & roll hall of fame inductee exploring new creative and vocal territories by using her amazing gift in passionate interpretations of blues, soul and more.
We caught Heart live in concert on Saturday night at Foxwoods. It is the mercurial time for the Wilson sisters.
Heart played a fast paced and balanced 90 minute set. They are hard rock in glorious splendor. I love how their music beckons.
Ann Wilson’s magnificent voice filled the MGM Grand Theater. Her voice is powerful, I love her delivery. She sounded vibrant and chilled me to the bone several times last night. She touched the music of our heart the most with the song”Alone”.
Nancy Wilson is a talented guitarist and vocalist. She stepped out front, very much in charge, several times during the show. She got crazy on us and that was cool to see. She high kicked and moved with amazing fluidity. She played lots of guitars, I was fascinated by her technique.
The ending song that was the most pleasant surprise was Led Zeppelin’s “Misty Mountain Hop“. Heart knocked that song out of the park. They added a dimension and reverence to this timeless classic that echoes with resonance inside of me.
