While the band HEART is on ‘personal and professional hiatus,’ Nancy Wilson and her new band, ROADCASE ROYALE, will be keeping busy with the release of their debut album (Sept. 22nd) and playing the opening spot on the upcoming BOB SEGER ‘Runaway Train 2017 Tour.’ (appearing in Rochester NY Sept. 12) Roadcase Royale have already recorded and released 2 songs earlier this year (“Get Loud,” & “Not Giving Up”) and now that they have been signed to Loud & Proud Records for a full-length album, Ms. Wilson and her crew can show how the chemistry in the band has been working. And according to Nancy Wilson, that chemistry is thriving!  Besides Wilson, Roadcase Royale features other members of HEART as well as LIV WARFIELD (vocals) and RYAN WATERS (guitar) who are part of PRINCE’s NEW POWER GENERATION band, and whom Nancy Wilson met when they opened a few shows for HEART. Of her new outfit, NANCY WILSON remarked, “[Warfield] and I were like, ‘We should try to do something together,’ because we’re both just excited about music.” We said, ‘Let’s be the people that actually do something that they want to do, instead of just say that they’re gonna do it, and never do it.’ Because (sister) Ann had been out doing her own Ann Wilson thing, I figured [I could] do something musical and fun and interesting and inspiring and exciting.” In the Press Release announcing the band’s signing, Nancy Wilson also said, “Roadcase Royale is a band I’ve always wanted to be in. We all write and create songs as a unit. It’s an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan bring a whole new level of magic to our new sound. I’m amazed, after devoting my life to rock music, how it now feels so brand new. That’s why our first album is called First Things First.” In addition to their place on the BOB SEGER tour, Roadcase Royale will also play their own, short, headlining tour in September & October (in between Seger dates—see itinerary below). Rock On!
