Roadcase Royale Sign With Loud & Proud Records For Debut Album ‘First Things First’

Roadcase Royale Sign With Loud & Proud Records For Debut Album ‘First Things First’

Nancy Wilson, one of the founding members of the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Heart, has teamed up with former Prince’s New Power Generation band member and R&B singerLiv Warfield to form the soulful, rock super group, Roadcase Royale.  The band recently signed with Loud & Proud Records and plan to release their debut album, First Things First, September 22, 2017.  The album wasproduced by fellow Roadcase Royale band member Dan Rothchild (Heart) along with the band.

“Nancy and Liv are magic together, and the musicianship is outstanding,” said Tom Lipsky, President Loud & Proud Records. “The interesting blend of talents and influences is what makes Roadcase Royale special.  Most importantly, there is a fire within this group to do something original, to feed off each other and explore new creative directions. It is exciting to see that kind of passion and drive in artists that have already accomplished so much. We are proud to be their label partners.”

“Roadcase Royale is a band I’ve always wanted to be in,” says Nancy Wilson. “We all write and create songs as a unit. It’s an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan both 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.”

Earlier this year, Rolling Stone premiered the live performance video of their debut single “Get Loud” saying, “…the band builds a funky, nimble groove, led by Warfield’s soulful belting and the acoustic/electric guitar attack of Wilson and Prince protégé Ryan Waters.”  The video was shot by celebrated photographer, Neal Preston. Watch it HERE.  “Get Loud” with its laid-back groove, provides a solid acoustic and electric foundation for Warfield’s vocals – all about getting loud and standing up for women’s equality. “Get Loud” blends this important message with the group’s R&B and rock influences, resulting in a uniquely powerful track.

The name of the band, Roadcase Royale came to the group during a backstage meeting they had last year.  Wilson said, “When I came up with the name Roadcase Royale it was an interesting symbol to me since the big heavy-duty road cases that our amps drums and guitars travel in are much like the musicians they accompany on the road. Strong and regal looking yet all scuffed up and dented, covered in funny stickers that tell the story of a crazy traveling circus.”

In addition to Wilson (guitar) and Warfield (vocals), Roadcase Royale features Ryan Waters (lead guitarist) along with Heart members Chris Joyner (keys), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Ben Smith (drums). The sextet made their live debut March 25, 2017 at the 5th Annual Rock Against MS Benefit Concert in Los Angeles.

The band will play several headline dates beginning September 10, 2017 at The Gramercy Theatre in New Yorkand will embark on a major U.S. tour this fall, dates to be announced soon.

ROADCASE ROYALE: Nancy Wilson and Liv Warfield Join Forces To Form New Band!

ROADCASE ROYALE: Nancy Wilson and Liv Warfield Join Forces To Form New Band!

Nancy Wilson, one of the founding members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Heart, has teamed up with former Prince band member and R&B singer Liv Warfield to form a new super group called ROADCASE ROYALE. The sound of ROADCASE ROYALE is muscular rock with some R&B/Blues and in depth ballads thrown in, reflecting the iconic sounds of both their respective bands. ROADCASE ROYALE’S debut song is available to stream now via the band’s Soundcloud page. The song, “Get Loud,” is a ROADCASE ROYALE original, and will debut January 20th immediately following Concert for America: Stand Up, Sing Out!, which will be livestreamed through Facebook. The song will also be featured at the Women’s March on Austin, TX (the largest ever gathering of Texas women) on January 21.

Joining Wilson (guitar) and Warfield (vocals) are lead guitarist Ryan Waters (the musical director for Liv’s solo work and Prince protégé) along with Heart members Chris Joyner (keys), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Ben Smith (drums). Each of the members’ musical talents shines in “Get Loud.” The song begins with a laid-back groove, providing a solid acoustic and electric foundation for Warfield’s vocals — all about getting loud and standing up for women’s equality. “Get Loud” blends this important message with the groups R&B and rock influences, resulting in a uniquely powerful track.

The band has recorded five new original songs as well as plans for a tour early in 2017. Wilson has said, ROADCASE ROYALE’s activity doesn’t mean Heart is going away. “ROADCASE ROYALE is a side project,”. she notes, “and not a replacement for Heart.” She also stated that the name ROADCASE ROYALE came to the group during a backstage meeting they had last year, and said “When I came up with the name ROADCASE ROYALE it was an interesting symbol to me since the big heavy duty road cases that our amps drums and guitars travel in are much like the musicians they accompany on the road. Strong and regal looking yet all scuffed up and dented, covered in funny stickers that tell the story of a crazy traveling circus.”

“It’s going to be fun to see our road cases with ROADCASE ROYALE stenciled on the side!” Wilson added.

More about ROADCASE ROYALE:
Led by former Prince collaborator Liv Warfield and Nancy Wilson, co-founder of Heart, ROADCASE ROYALE has a rich background in rock and R&B. Warfield, Wilson, and their bandmates bring their decades of experience from the upper echelon of the music industry to ROADCASE ROYALE, along with a renewed sense of direction and drive. Joining Wilson and Warfield are Warfield’s lead guitarist and musical director Ryan Waters and Heart veterans Dan Rothchild (bass), Ben Smith (Drums) and Chris Joyner (Keys). Each of these members shine in ROADCASE ROYALE with their various sensibilities creating the group’s sensitive, passionate, and driving rock and R&B sound.

Heart To Release New Album, ‘Beautiful Broken,’ On July 8th!

Heart To Release New Album, ‘Beautiful Broken,’ On July 8th!

heart-new-album-2016

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members HEART return July 8 with BEAUTIFUL BROKEN, their sixteenth album and their first on Concord Records. HEART has sold over 35 million records, and this anticipated album is their first in four years. BEAUTIFUL BROKEN finds Ann and Nancy Wilson exploring new songs, but taking some of their favorite “cherry picks” from their catalog and rerecording and rethinking them. The title track and first single features a dynamic guest vocal contribution by Metallica’s James Hetfield with Ann Wilson. Click here to watch an album preview clip.

“There is really a seventies feel to this record both in the sound, and the way we got to the emotional core of each song,” says Nancy Wilson. “We picked songs that we always wanted to re-do, plus we’ve added three new tracks. On both new and old, we have the band playing together the way we used to. This is classic Heart.”

The seven tracks that were pulled from the HEART catalog were tunes both Nancy and Ann wanted another shot at, due many times to how they were initially produced. Songs like “City’s Burning,” “Down on Me,” and “Sweet Darlin'” have always been live favorites of the sisters, and of HEART’s fan base, but they had somewhat languished. “Those songs may have fallen through the cracks, in a way, because of where radio was at the time when they were first released,” Ann Wilson says. “Rediscovering those songs, I found ways they emotionally still speak to me.” Two songs are from Passionworks, two from Private Audition, and two are from Bebe Le Strange.

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN’s title track had been a bonus song off Fanatic, HEART’s last album, but this version is essentially an entirely new song with barnburner vocals-and even some lyrics-added by Metallica’s James Hetfield. “It blows the previous version out of the water,” says Nancy. “James just took the song on, and what he added was perfect with a bite and a rock accent.”

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN was co-produced by Nancy Wilson with Heart’s bassist Dan Rothchild. Rothchild had previously produced Better Than Ezra’s platinum-selling Deluxe, but he also comes from rock royalty: his father was legendary Doors producer Paul Rothchild. BEAUTIFUL BROKEN was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, the same studio the Doors cut their best work. “There were eerie echoes in the hallway,” Nancy says.

Rothchild said his goal was to capture the human feel of HEART live in the studio. “On these classics, some of which had suffered from eighties-era over-editing-production-curse, we stripped the paint off and found the beauty underneath,” he says.

For Ann, the album allowed her to revisit, and re-sing, songs she felt “never reached their full development.” For Nancy, the lyrical heart came alive: “I felt these songs were poetic pieces that were lost in translation with the sounds of the eighties, which was harder and more digital. We wanted to drape them in velvet, and make them shine.”

One example of is “City’s Burning,” originally on the 1982 album Private Audition. “The first time we recorded that was in 1981,” says Ann, “and it was in a key that was a bit ‘show-offy,’ and sped-up. On BEAUTIFUL BROKEN, we put the key in the right place, and the song really bore fruit.”

Nancy Wilson sings one of three new songs, “Two. The song had a different genesis than many HEART classics, as Wilson first heard it on a demo made for a television show her husband Geoff was working on. She reached out to the song’s writer–R&B sensation Ne-Yo–and asked if he’d consider giving her the song. “I went to work begging for the song,” she says. “Ne-Yo said, ‘sure.’ It ends up he’s a Heart fan. He may still release his own version at some point, but to me the song feels like mine now.”

One of the unique aspects to BEAUTIFUL BROKEN is the string arrangements on four songs done by legendary arranger Paul Buckmaster. Buckmaster’s resume includes work with the Rolling Stones and Elton John (“Levon”). “We were talking about how we wanted ‘Paul Buckmaster-type’ strings at one point,” Nancy said. “So then we decided to call Paul himself.”

Buckmaster’s work on “Sweet Darlin'” is, in particular, a standout, but only because the strings highlight Ann’s powerful vocals. Ann had always wanted another shot at “Sweet Darlin'” so it was an ideal choice for BEAUTIFUL BROKEN. “To me the original sounded somehow incomplete,” Ann says. This version, with Buckmaster’s strings, finishes the song properly, but it also showcases how Ann’s voice has remained strong over the decades.

Ann and Nancy Wilson formed HEART when the idea of two women leading a rock band was still groundbreaking. From the moment 1976’s Dreamboat Annie was released, they became stars. With hits like “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” and “These Dreams,” the band became one of the biggest hit-makers in the seventies and eighties. In 2012, their memoir Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll. became a New York Times bestseller, and in 2013 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They have sold more records than any sister act in the history of popular music, but they’ve done so keeping their vision–that women can both rock and put forth emotional intimacy–central to their sound.

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN follows in that tradition, an album with pure rock power on the title track, but also tender sexual yearning on “Language of Love.” It’s a contrast that has always been the essence of HEART. “We still make records like we always have, and they are always impossibly romantic, because Ann is always an impossibly romantic singer,” Nancy says. “In a world where there is less poetic lyric writing, we’ve always tried to plant a flag for poetry.”

That may seem “broken” in a way, in a world of machine-created pop music, but it is also certainly a beautiful vision. This year HEART will bring that vision to half a million fans during their summer concert tour, and BEAUTIFUL BROKEN extends that relationship with radio-ready songs, and deep album cuts.

Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off on Thursday, July 14 at DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Mich. as the bands embark on a 30+ date trek across the United States with shows lined up in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Nashville and more.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80’s and ‘90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters. Along the way, music by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their band Heart sold more than 35 million albums, sold out arenas worldwide, and found their way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television, and associations with branded sponsors. Powerful and exciting on stage, Heart performs their amazing show to many hundreds of thousands of fans annually.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” She sits at the head of her own independent label, Blackheart Records. Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987’s “Light Of Day,” and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, “The Rocky Horror Show.” She has appeared on such acclaimed television shows as ”Oprah” (the last season) and ‘Law and Order.” Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, “Unvarnished,” last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans. “Unvarnished” debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 chart.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this April.
