Exclusive Interview: Ann Wilson of Heart

Singer Ann Wilson appreciates people. The powerful-voiced frontwoman for the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band, Heart, which has sold tens of millions of records over four decades, continues her career in the music industry so that she might continue to engage in honest, even primal expressions and connect with people along her journey. It’s these genuine -- even “basic” -- interactions that Wilson truly holds dear. And this urge drives her to tour. Upcoming dates include Friday, February 9 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma and Saturday, February 10th at the Spirit Mountain Casino outside Portland. After those shows, Wilson will travel to Los Angeles to record a new solo record and, later, she will tour with Jeff Beck and Paul Rogers. We wanted to catch up with her before her upcoming travels to talk about the new record, what it’s like to perform for her in 2018 and how she reflects on her day-to-day life.
