Sounds great! Sleeper is the name of the new CD.
Just ordered the album at http://cdbaby.com/cd/sarajohnston
which is US $12.97, or 9 Euro.

She looks a bit like Heather, especially on the live pic !

I don't 100% like her music though.

Bernd, how did you know she's related to HN ?

We have discussed this fact on the Heather Nova Mailinglist in 1998, as a new Bran Van 3000 album came out.

Yesterday, I have read her name again and I remembered.

Montreal, is this in the French speaking part of Canada?

Nice try... but I'm not convinced!

I don't like this music much, it's a bit boring to me.

It's not boring! It is relaxing!

Sleeper reveals Sara's strong melodic sensibilities through her luscious vocals and crisp guitar playing. Sara's lyrics are hones, driven, and filled with subtle, yet poigmnant images and word-play. Her songs are refined with an abrasive edge and have an intensive emotional undercurrent both lyrically and melodically.

Convinced now?

Gerd, you would buy anything, even if there is the smallest link to Heather, but I'm not convinced either.

It's not bad , but not special either.

'Wake Me' contains a hidden track. It is 'boys of summer' from Don Henley.

It sounds a bit like Sixpence None The Richer.
