Writing Mistral Wind by Sue Ennis

Writing Mistral Wind

Ann, Nancy and I wrote this song in my dingy, little apartment in Berkeley CA. one afternoon. Our jumping off point was a simple, catchy chord progression Roger had given us. We decided to build our chorus around that strong progression and we were off and running.

Heart to Heart: An interview with Nancy Wilson

Almost 35 years after the release of their classic debut album Dreamboat Annie, the Wilson sisters (Ann and Nancy) of Heart show no signs of slowing down. Their new album, Red Velvet Car (Legacy), follows not only their previous studio recording, 2004's Jupiter's Darling, but also Ann's first-ever solo release, 2007's Hope & Glory (on which she performed duets with Rufus Wainwright and Sir Elton John, among others). The good news is that the timeless Red Velvet Car has everything Heart fans have come to

Heart live at Hammerstein Ballroom

The Wilson sisters, Ann and Nancy, better known as Heart, played a sold out show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on August 3, 2010. Even though they've been around since 1973, they sounded and looked as great as they did when they first hit the scene 37 years ago! In my dream scenario, I really wanted to hear "Magic Man," "Crazy on You" and "Barracuda." They must have read my mind because they played all three songs in a row!

Heart back to classic '70s sound

New Extensive Nancy Wilson Interview!

With a sparkling new album coming soon and a major North American tour underway, one might think it's the late 1970s all over again for Heart.

The highly-influential group, still powered by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, is in the midst of its latest renaissance. But it's a long way from the ground-breaking, house-quaking days of "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," and "Barracuda."

Red Velvet Car - Song by Song with Ann and Nancy Wilson

THERE YOU GO: We made the guitars and drums in the song sound like a quagmire because that's what's all around the young person in this song. It's a song of warning about the dangers of this world, and so the instruments are all bleeding into one another and there's a sense of intensity and things buzzing out of control. (ANN) The song and its purpose mutated. Craig Bartock and I started it as a cautionary tale, a warning to a young woman on a red carpet. But when Ann got a hold of it, the song b
