Fierce Heart was a studio project conceived to issue a single album of the same title in 1985. All instruments were played by the US-based duo of Larry Elkins (vocals, bass) and Rex Carroll (guitars). Carroll had previously been a member of Winterhawk while Elkins was well-known as a session singer and musician. Attempting to create a multi-layered AOR record built on crafted songwriting and climatic vocals, Fierce Heart was widely considered to be one of the finer pomp rock albums of the mid-80s. However, Carroll’s increasing commitment to his Christian faith ensured that it would remain a one-off project. He subsequently formed Whitecross.
