Heart is well into four decades of musical success, and that success was built on the skills of Ann and Nancy Wilson. The sisters led an accidental feminist revolution by doing everything that the boys of ’70s rock did, but better. The ladies of Heart didn’t just keep up with their male peers, they blew them away. Ann’s powerful voice and Nancy’s expert guitar playing always set the band apart, and it is their irresistible combination of skilled songwriting and musicianship that has earned them well-deserved international fame.

These Dreams: From power ballads to rock burners to sweet folk tunes, the Wilsons have done it all over the years, finding commercial hits with songs like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man” and “Barracuda.”
