With Fierce Bliss, the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ann Wilson, one of the greatest singers of all time and co-founder of multi-platinum stars Heart, has created a supremely lavish, warm and seductive slice of rock ‘n’ roll which provides an instant soundtrack whether on the freeway or in front of the fireplace.
Recorded between Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL and Power Station in Waterford, CT, Ann Wilson got together with famed Nashville session guitarist Tom Bukovac and invited several friends, including Warren Haynes, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Vince Gill, to help create an album which carries the glow of an ochre sunset. Not to mention the pristine vocals of a rock legend who still has every single unique octave at her fingertips.
Fierce Bliss is truly an album which embraces all the finest qualities of classic American rock with the comforts and escapes that it can bring. Lead track “Greed” roars like a muscle car with Wilson’s rich voice hitting over drive, while “Love Of My Life” is a beautiful rendition of the Queen classic featuring Vince Gill on guest vocals which will strike empathy in all who hear who it. There’s the uniquely mysterious “Black Wing,” with Wilson again the driver through a hazy, mystical journey, and a spectacular cover of “Bridge Of Sighs.” The stomp ‘n’ roll thunders through “A Moment In Heaven” and Wilson takes charge of “Missionary Man” with a storming rendition that reframes the classic song.
With album art created by the famous fantasy artist Roger Dean, Fierce Bliss is destined to be an American rock ‘n’ roll classic that speaks to millions of people and provide them comfort in these turbulent times.
