My almost-nine-year-old daughter is in the shower. She's singing the ooooohs from Island. This is a direct result of taking her to see the show in Seattle. This Heather-Nova-loving-mama is so pleased. :)

Oh! Now the five-year-old is joining in the singing! :D

I tweeted a picture I took at the Seattle show, and Heather retweeted it. Made me happy.

Oh, but I loved it! Not that I want things to go wrong for them but I loved that it was different. Plus, I cried like a fool through Fool For You, which is fitting. Who wants to cry in a treehouse?

The live shows have converted my family! The two chief complainers won't stop listening to her now. Claire even issued a "woo-hoo!" when Girl on a Mountain came on today while Robert was listening (again) to the Portland show.

And Truth and Bone again. It was a request for Seattle, but I guess, like others, she decided to keep going with it. Maybe I should ask for This Humanness to be put back in the set list for the LA show. Actually, I should ask Robert to ask her since she responds to his tweets but not mine.

So far I've only re-listened to the Portland show. It's amazing to hear it again after having heard it live. I'm very thankful she's recording these shows.

Live is best, for sure, but having heard the songs live now, I find listening to the album versions even sweeter. I was worried I would no longer be satisfied witht he studio versions, but at least for the new album, that is not the case. I enjoy them even more. Ha ha, I didn't think that was possible!

Robin -

I have uploaded four live versions of "Mesmerized" that Heather Nova performed back in 2005.

It is also one of my favorite of her songs, but like other haunting ones such as "Heaven Sent" she has only performed it rarely.

The four versions are from these performances:

* 2005.08.20 - Pukkelpop Festival - Hasselt - Belgium
* 2005.08.21 - Lowlands Festival - Biddinghuizen - Netherlands
* 2005.10.01 - Brussels Radio - Ancienne Belgique - Brussels - Belgium
* 2005.10.03 - Le Bataclan - Paris - France

You can download them from here:

https://www.sendspace.com/file/lrwb52

The "Ancienne Belgique" and "Pukkelpop" versions are even better than the "Lowlands Festival" version - which is probably the video you saw on YouTube. The guitar really soars in these two versions and the song really brims with emotion.

Enjoy!


Thank you very much, cappy44. That was super nice of you!

Thanks, chessimprov. Well, I don't think I can be a forum savior or anything, since I'm one who took something like a ten-year break from it. But it has been lovely to talk about Heather's music again. And tomorrow night I'm sure will give me lots to gush about!

Thanks, Cass. I'm super mushy when it comes to my kids but I know not everyone is interested in hearing about how awesome I think it is to be their mom. ;) I try to keep the gushing to a minimum, usually. At least I know Heather understands. Life gets heavy but bright, indeed.

I looked on Youtube and the performances of it I find there were with a full band in 2005, barefoot on a rug. :) So I know it's not likely, my hopes aren't up. I just put it out there and that's enough for me. Seems likely I might hear Paper Cup and that song is special to me regarding my kids as well.

So she plays tonight in Chicago and then they spend a few days traveling across the country to meeeeeee! I'm so excited, and we're going to the meet and greet thing. So not only do I finally finally finally get to hear her play live, I get to meet her too! I'm going to start singing in my Taylor Swift voice about wildest dreams here in a minute.

I was thinking about requests. At first I was thinking I wouldn't make any because I'm just so happy to hear any of her songs live! But then I thought, why not? I'll make one and if she doesn't play it, that's OK, I'll be happy anyway. But might as well ask. And the song I decided to request is probably very unlikely to be played because I don't think she's done it live in quite a long time (Bernd will know, yes?) but I figure even if she doesn't play it for me at least she'll know someone out there really loves this song. So that song is Mesmerised (I keep getting a red line under that because I'm using her British spelling with an "s" instead of my Americanized "z" way). I love Mesmerised because it reminds me of when I first became a mother. I can't even completely describe what that is like except to say it's wonderful and amazing and terrifying and beautiful and so very special and also, refer to her song because she sums up that transformation from "person" to "parent" perfectly. And so I adore Mesmerised. It's pretty and I really love those bells, but mostly because when I listen to it I'm transported back to the first days of my daughter's life, and if I had to pick a favorite time in my life so far, that's what I'd pick. It was a really magical time and I feel so happy when I relive it through Mesmerised. Even if she doesn't play it live, which I'm not counting on at all, that song is such a gift to me and I'll always be grateful she wrote it and shared it with us.

And that's my sappy post for the day!

I was thinking of I Miss My Sky. Of course, that didn't turn out well for Amelia. Dying's not good, either. Maybe I'll stick with The Sun Will Always Rise for inspiration. The flight to SF will rise. ;)

This is probably posted somewhere else but this Instagram pic from when they were in Albany is so cute. I love seeing Heather cracking up like that. We don't usually get to see that side of her in promo pics!

OK, so it turns out I have no idea how to link to an Instagram picture. I'm talking about one posted on https://www.instagram.com/my_mum_on_tour/ with the giant stuffed unicorn.

A comment on that beautiful photo she posted to Instagram: "my parents went to this show and they were so so so happy to meet heather and they adored the show omg my parents are too cute"

OMG I feel so old. Because this is me in a few days, and the day my kids start referring to me as "cute" because I go to concerts and am a big old fan, I think I'm just going to die. How do I make that blushing icon?

OMG! I knew it was happening but I didn't realize there was a Portland date yet! Awesome, thank you!

I saw Tanya Donelly (tour for her Beautysleep album) once back when we lived in L.A. It was a terrific show, of course. But I've never seen Belly and I never thought I would. So yea! The long-awaited-for-but-unlikely-to-ever-happen-tours are happening in my life suddenly! Who knew that I just had to wait to get old?

I hope they get to where you can see them, Bernd!

I've read reviews of shows and setlist reports on here for years and years and years. It so different this time knowing that I'll get a turn myself!!! That what I'm reading about is coming to me soon; that'll actually have this tour experience instead of only reading about it! Yippety skippety woohoo!!!!

14 more days until my first Heather Nova show! Clouseau, I know just how you feel. How many more days until Evanston?

She just posted a cute picture to Facebook of herself and Arnulf in the "green room" of Bluebird Cafe, which seems to be an old-fashioned beauty salon.

Have fun tonight, Cass! I admit to much envy!!! :D

Agreed! I just watched the clips myself. I love how they were singing along with her and back to her. That must be so neat, to have your own songs sung back to you by a crowd.

Probably also why she did extra songs, ones not on the set list. She wanted to play more for such an appreciative crowd.

So, now we have the bar set by Tel Aviv. The USA fans have to make sure we're at least as good of an audience as the Tel Aviv fans.

Yeah, I know the feeling. I'm still hoping I can make it to the Berkeley show, but it's tricky for me to take time off of work in April. Which I'm planning to do so that I can be at the LA show. I don't know how to squeeze it all in, but I have time to try to come up with a plan.

Eric and Cass are making it to a lot of shows! Very impressive.

But just to be sure, come out to Portland and see the NW shows with us. You can stay at my house with my crazy family. They love visitors! They are weekend shows after all. :)
