Kristy Johnson and Casey Nicole have found a new world as the lead singers of Even It Up, the ultimate Heart tribute band. This band has made it their mission to replicate the intricate vocals and instrumentals of Heart –without the use of tracks. They also provide the look and costuming that mirrors Heart in the 70s, the 80s, or their present look today.

Johnson was born and raised in the Dallas area and studied vocal music through elementary, middle and high school. She then went on to study vocal performance at Stephen F. Austin State University on a vocal scholarship. Being classically trained in vocal music has helped Johnson develop a three octave range that lends to being able to cover the powerful scope of Ann Wilson's vocals.

Johnson steps to the microphone ready to wail and burn the walls down. She's supported on stage by her husband Glenn Johnson, who is also a powerful part of Even It Up. Glenn is a multi-talented musician and vocalist that plays the electric and acoustic guitar, plus the keyboards.

"If you enjoy Heart, you'll love going to see Even It Up. Kristy Johnson has a voice so similar to Ann Wilson and Casey Nicole sounds and plays just as if Nancy Wilson was on stage. It's a treat to hear them as well as see them." - David Simers, JAM Magazine

Casey Nicole is a singer/songwriter based in Dallas, and kicks it out as Nancy Wilson in Even It Up - The Ultimate Heart Tribute Band. Growing up in a musical family, she studied piano early on and later played percussion and bass drum in high school. During that time, Nicole picked up acoustic guitar and started writing songs.

Nicole is involved in the songwriting community and hosted a popular songwriter showcase in Dallas for 3 years with Bryan Sing. Her highly-rated debut EP, Waterfall of Feelings, was released in 2013, and Acoustic Harmonies debuted in 2020. The songs and albums are available on Amazon and iTunes. Nicole also attended the 2017 Rock n' Roll Fantasy Camp in Los Angeles, CA, with the real Nancy Wilson. It's been the highlight of her musical journey to pay tribute to one of her biggest influences, Heart.

Even It Up has an extensive catalog of music that encompasses Heart’s hits as well as deep cuts. The band stays true to the look and sound of the original rock band with a precision that will take you back to the days when the Wilson sisters threw down some serious rock n’ roll. As tremendous Heart fans, they are passionate about bringing audiences a night of music that takes them back in time.

Even It Up is ready to rock with Heart's greatest, most popular hits - and you just might hear them pay homage to a bit of Led Zeppelin in the process. Follow Even It Up on Facebook and Instagram!
