Nancy Wilson - Details


NANCY WILSON has been a respected musical artist for more than 20 years, beginning as a member of Heart, one of the most successful female rock and roll bands ever, and continuing into a career as a film composer.

She previously wrote the score for Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire (1996) which marked her first solo effort as a film composer. Prior to that, Wilson collaborated with Ann Dudley to create the score for Crowe's Say Anything (1989)

Born in San Francisco, Wilson began playing guitar at the age of eight, and started playing rock and roll at a time when few women were pursuing the craft. In the early 1970s, Wilson teamed with her sister Ann to form the Seattle-based rock group Heart. They topped the charts with the song "These Dreams," and count among their additional hits "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "Mistral Wind," "Dog and Butterfly" and "Dreamboat Annie," to name only a few.
