SHAREEN ANN KING - LEAD VOCALIST
Shareen’s love for Heart started at an early age when she would wear out her sister’s Heart albums singing along with Ann Wilson at the top of her lungs in her bedroom of an old, cold farmhouse in upstate, NY. One of her fondest memories was standing inside the barn silo singing “Magic Man” just to hear the incredible natural acoustics it provided. She grew up singing in church, throughout school, onto recording studios, worship teams, local bands and performing at many different events.
Today, Shareen is lead vocalist portraying Ann Wilson in her band “Barracuda-America’s Heart Tribute" based out of Nashville, TN. She is also a studio session vocalist recording demos and jingles for many of Nashville’s songwriters and has fronted several bands such as "Shareen & The Wolfpack," "Shareen & The Kings", "The Mood Ring" with Porter Howell of "Little Texas" and "Randy Nations Band."
