The Voice Behind the Band

 

Portraying Ann Wilson is vocalist Shareen Ann King.  Shareen’s love for Heart started at an early age where she would wear out her sister’s Heart albums singing along with Ann at the top of her lungs in her bedroom of an old, cold farmhouse in upstate, NY.  Some of her fondest memories were standing inside the barn silo and performing “Magic Man” just to hear the incredible natural acoustics it provided for such an awesome song. Shareen recalls hearing and singing along to Heart albums being played at her older sister’s birthday party where everyone was dressed so hip in their big collared shirts or angel sleeves and Frye boots.  In the 80s, she recalls driving with the windows down in her brothers hot rod when the smash hit “Alone” came on the radio.  She would reach over, crank it up and passionately sing along!  With such a strong musical influence that Heart had on Shareen, she went on to perform at school concerts and eventually studio sessions while performing in local bands.  Her dream began to take shape when she moved to Music City, USA.  Since then, she has performed in several bands in Nashville, and whenever performing a song by Heart, she would hear many praises including “I love when you sing any song by Heart; that’s what you do!” Many an encore have been performed by fans shouting for “Barracuda”.

Together the members of “Back to Avalon” hold a very impressive number of years of experience. Each member quite accomplished in their own right coupled with unceasing stellar performances have created a solid foundation for this tribute to Heart.   

“We are just so excited to have launched this passion project and are looking very forward to continuing to wow the crowds with all the 70’s and 80s hits loved by hard-core Heart fans across the nation!”, says Shareen.  The members of “Back to Avalon” have heavily rehearsed to recreate Heart’s incredible music.  No Heart fan will be left disappointed once they experience their power packed, amazing show! 

“Back to Avalon” tailors their show according to the need and performs anywhere from a 30 minute to a 180 minute show!
