Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are the creative spark behind Heart, a rock group who initially found success in the mid-’70s via hard-hitting radio hits like “Magic Man” and “Barracuda,” only to reach greater heights after engineering a major comeback a decade later with more pop-oriented fare such as “Alone,” “These Dreams,” and “What About Love?” Drawing from hard rock, heavy metal, folk, and pop, Heart managed to land Top Ten albums in each of the band’s four decades, despite taking a break in the late ’90s to pursue other interests — the Wilsons did release a pair of roots-oriented LPs under the moniker the Lovemongers in 1997 and 1998. Upon reconvening in 2004 with Jupiters Darling, Heart went on to issue a string of successful albums, culminating in their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.

The daughters of a Marine Corps captain, Ann (born June 19, 1950) and Nancy (born March 16, 1954) grew up in both Southern California and Taiwan before the Wilson family settled in Seattle, Washington. Throughout their formative years, both were interested in folk and pop music; while Ann never took any formal music lessons as a child (she later learned to play several instruments), Nancy took up guitar and flute. After both sisters spent some time at college, they decided to try their hand as professional musicians, and while Nancy began performing as a folksinger, Ann joined the all-male vocal group Heart.
