ROADCASE ROYALE, FEATURING NANCY WILSON (HEART)

AND LIV WARFIELD (NEW POWER GENERATION)

RELEASE FIRST THINGS FIRSTTODAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

NANCY FEATURED ON NPR WEEKEND EDITION

ON TOUR NOW

 

New York, NY (September 22, 2017) – 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 singer Liv Warfield to form the soulful, rock super group, Roadcase Royale. The band releases their debut album, First Things First, today, September 22, 2017. ‘First Things First’ is available viaPledgeMusic, iTunes, and Amazon– as well as streaming on Spotify. The album was produced by fellow Roadcase Royale band member Dan Rothchild (Heart) along with the band.

Roadcase Royale has been busy doing press interviews and radio visits including NPR Weekend Edition, who recently interviewed Wilson – listen HERE,

 

Billboard, who premiered “The Dragon” – Read/Listen HERE, a song written for the late Alice In Chains frontman, Layne Staley before his death. Other press such as Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Sirius XM, and Associated Press. BackStory Events recently live streamed a Q&A with Wilson & Warfield via Guitar World – watch it HERE. 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.

Roadcase Royale’s version of the Heart song “These Dreams” is featured in the new Aaron Sorkin film, Molly’s Game, starring Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, and Kevin Costner. The film will make its official U.S. release nationwide on November 22, 2017.

“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.”

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 band will play several headline dates and Nancy is also the special guest on the Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Silver Bullet Tour. She’ll be playing with Roadcase Royale and performing songs off the new album as well as classic Heart favorites (see dates below).
