For nearly four decades, Ann Wilson has been the voice of Heart, and what a powerful voice it is. She’s been the force behind classic hits like “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” “Dreamboat Annie,” and many more. But she’s also spent the last few years cultivating an eclectic solo career outside of Heart, releasing a series of solo albums that combine acoustic folk and psychedelic experimentation. Her most recent release under the banner of The Ann Wilson Thing, called #2, is a mix of soulfully delivered covers like Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression” and Peter Gabriel’s “Don’t Give Up” and her own new songs.
Now she’s bringing the whole spectrum of her work, the covers, the Heart classics and her solo songs, to the Peace Center on Thursday, March 23rd. Get more info at 864-467-3000, or click HERE.
“The stage is a magical place where I can be beautifully in and out of control, where I can build a fire and then jump into it,” Wilson says. “The stage is where I have always lived; where I’ve expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys. I suppose I am addicted to it. I’ve never been much good at talking, but I can sing, and when I sing I connect with people in a much deeper, higher way.”
