Nancy Wilson is celebrated as one of the seminal musicians in the history of rock ‘n’ roll. A guitar virtuoso from the age of 10, Nancy and her sister Ann led the multi-platinum rock group, Heart.
Nancy currently is working with former Prince collaborator Liv Warfield and several talented musicians in the band, Roadcase Royale, which has a rich background in rock and R&B. They all bring decades of experience from the upper echelon of the music industry. Joining Nancy and Liv are Liv’s lead guitarist Ryan Waters and Heart veterans Dan Rothchild (bass), Ben Smith (drums) and Chris Joyner (keyboard). Each member shines in Roadcase Royale, with their various sensibilities creating the group’s sensitive, passionate..., and driving rock and R&B sound.
The talents of the Wilson sisters led Heart to sell 35 million records. Nancy is revered as an ingenious guitar player and a gifted vocalist. As a songwriter, she has co-written a collection of classic rock songs including, “Magic Man,” “Crazy on You,” “Barracuda,” and “Straight On.” During an era when females in rock ‘n’ roll were scarce, Nancy helped carve out a place for women to front a band and dominate a rock stage. Her icon status was cemented when Heart was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Nancy also has built a successful career in film composing, with credits on such films as “Vanilla Sky,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Elizabethtown,” among many others.
Prince initially noticed Liv Warfield, a former Notre Dame track star, after the release of her debut album “Embrace Me” and a YouTube video of her singing “Gimme Shelter.” She worked closely with Prince as a member of New Power Generation and he was the executive producer of her second solo album.
Ryan Waters has worked as lead guitarist and musical director for Liv Warfield’s solo work since 2012, and previously worked with artists such as Sade, Cee Lo Green, and India Arie. Ben Smith, Dan Rothchild, and Chris Joyner carry with them an impressive musical pedigree – Rothchild is the son of Doors producer Paul Rothchild and has worked with Stevie Nicks, Fiona Apple and Beck, while Joyner has worked with numerous musicians including Ray LaMontagne, Jason Mraz and Sheryl Crow. Smith has performed with Mike Inez and Mike McCready and has been working with Heart since the 1990s.
