Liv Warfield is an American R&B singer-songwriter native to Peoria, IL, whose career can be traced back to her college years in Portland, Oregon. She holds the title as "Portland's Most Soulful Singer".[1] In 2006, Warfield self-released her first album "Embrace Me" - a collection of strong ballads.[2] After sending in an audition tape, she was selected as the newest member of Prince's New Power Generation. She's featured on his album Lotusflow3r and has since credited Prince as her musical mentor. The Unexpected was released early 2014 with Prince as its Executive Producer, who also wrote the single under the same name for the album. VH1 Soul featured Warfield as their first artist in the campaign You Oughta Know in early 2014.[3] Warfield received a Soul Train award nomination in 2014 for Best New Artist.[4] In 2017, Warfield teamed up with former Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson to form a new super group called ROADCASE ROYALE. The sound of ROADCASE ROYALE is muscular rock with some R&B/Blues and in depth ballads thrown in, reflecting the iconic sounds of both their respective bands. Their single debut, “Get Loud,” is a ROADCASE ROYALE original and released on January 20, 2017. Joining Warfield (vocals) and Wilson (guitar) are lead guitarist Ryan Waters (the musical director for Warfield’s solo work and Prince protégé) along with Heart members Chris Joyner (keys), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Ben Smith (drums).
