Biography

Although Heart re-conquered the charts during the mid to late ‘80s, the band forfeited the organic sound of their early recordings in favor of pop gloss. By the early ‘90s, the Wilson sisters (vocalist Ann and guitarist Nancy) were ready to return to their roots, which they attempted to do so in the form of a side band, the Lovemongers. The group (which saw the Wilson’s joined by keyboardist Sue Ennis, guitarist Frank Cox, and drummer Ben Smith) debuted on the motion picture soundtrack to Cameron Crowe’s 1992 film, Singles, with a dead-on cover of the Led Zeppelin folk classic, “The Battle of Evermore. ” The group issued a four-song EP a year later, The Battle of Evermore, which included the Zep cover once more, in addition to covers by Todd Rundgren,The Temptations, and even the early Heart classic, “Crazy on You.” The band took several years to offer a proper full-length release, which finally arrived in the form of 1997’s Whirlygig. In 1998, the Lovemongers issued the ten-track holiday recording, Here is Christmas. Greg Prato, All Music Guide

    @Wh0d1n1: It's not really after Heart -- more like in between. Heart is still alive and... beating ;P (So bad, but it had to be done).

    Woow there is so much great stuff in here, but is it normal that I can't listen to anything except battle of evermore?

    Had no idea Ann and Nancy did anything after Heart. Nice cover for sure, now I'm interested in hearing their other work under the Lovemongers label.
