Heart By Heart Official Website
In 2013, bassist Steve Fossen and drummer Michael Derosier were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as original members of Heart. That 70's-era lineup brought to the world the massive radio hits Magic Man, Crazy On You, Dreamboat Annie, Barracuda, Kick It Out, Heartless, Straight On, Dog & Butterfly, Even It Up and much more.
Now Fossen and Derosier are back together with HEART BY HEART, a new band featuring powerhouse vocalist Somar Macek and multi-talented guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Lizzy Daymont. Honoring the magic and power of the music of Heart, this incredible lineup considers it their responsibility to bring the songs to the stage in their original form. According to Fossen, “We don’t see it as our task to modify or update these classic tunes that Heart fans love and have listened to all these years.” After every show, fans express their appreciation for HEART BY HEART's ability to bring back the memories by playing the songs as written and recorded. Having Mike and Steve on stage gives HEART BY HEART an authenticity no Heart Tribute can match.
“WOW!!! I grew up on Heart and cannot believe what you have put together. It has completely reinvigorated my love for the band and their music. What a gift! All the band members were amazing.”
