Nancy Wilson – You and Me

Carry On Music

With her band Heart, Nancy Wilson has recorded 16 albums and sold over 35 million albums worldwide.

Within that history-making career, “You and Me” represents something special, as it is Nancy Wilson’s very first solo studio album.

The title track ‘You and Me,’ as with several of the songs on the album, reunites Wilson with longtime collaborator Sue Ennis, who co-wrote many of Heart’s classics with Nancy, and sister Ann.

“You and Me” highlights the intimate feel of the album.

Nancy’s singing is forward in the mix, her voice is spare, and the minimal production makes it feel like she’s right there in the same room with you.

Like all the legendary music she’s created with Heart, ‘You and Me’ is an emotional, intimate conversation between a musician and an audience.”

Wilson has been lauded for her guitar playing, noted for its blending elements of flamenco and classical guitar styles with hard rock.

Tracks include: You and Me, The Rising, I’ll Find You, Daughter, Party at the Angel Ballroom, The Boxer, Walk Away.
