Heather Nova Concert News : Very special guest for London show (Sep. 30th)
Posted by Ben on 2005/7/29 11:52:36 (1712 reads)
Heather Nova Concert News

On July 28th, a new post from Heather on the official site revealed a very pleasant surprise: famed (and missed) cellist Nadia Lanman will once again play with Heather, albeit for one night only. Be there or be square!

Here's Heather's announcement:

summer heat. looking forward to being back on the road - festivals first. then in the fall a tour with your old favourites on stage - berit on guitar, laurie on drums, matt on bass and a new keyboard player, simon, who has a few other tricks up his sleeve.

some treats along the way: in shepherds bush nadia lanman, who many of you will remember as the very lovely and talented cellist will make a guest appearance - something i very much look forward to... anyway, stay cool. and see you soon.

heather



Sadly, Nadia had to stop playing with Heather because of pain in her hands. We hope her reappearance means she's getting better.

Heather Nova Album News : "Welcome": first single info, cover and video
Posted by Ben on 2005/7/20 12:10:08 (2119 reads)
Heather Nova Album News

On the homepage of Heather's official site, you will find the cover art for Redbird's first single, Welcome, which is derived from one of the new promo pics. Along with it is a picture from the set of the accompanying video. It features Heather in a sexy mermaid-like dress, hair flying, with the sea and the sky behind her. No word yet on the place where it was shot.

Much like Drink It In from Storm, Welcome seems to be only a promotional single, meaning it has a video but won't get a public release, in France and in Germany at least. Copies have been sent out, featuring the radio edit (3:30) and the the album version (4:15) of Welcome. You can see a picture of this CD in the forums of the German fansite.

Heather Nova Album News : Press information about Redbird

Heather Nova Album News

"Redbird", Heather's sixth studio album, is quite different to her previous album "Storm",which had been a return to acoustic basics. The positive experience of recording "Storm" in one place, unlike her previous albums that had mostly been recorded in gaps between her heavy touring schedule, was also the basis for recording "Redbird", but Heather felt a more "rockier" feel to the music best suited the collection of songs that she had written.....
