super nova


I was lucky enough to see one of my favourite singer-songwriters of all time last night, the beautiful Heather Nova who performed at the Shepherd Bush Empire, her first UK gig for many years.
Heather's voice sent shivers up and down my spine as she played a tight set consisting of the best known songs from her 20-year career, from acoustic solo pieces to full-band rock-outs.
I've been following her music since I saw her supporting Robyn Hitchcock in Cambridge some, ooo, 15 years ago. And as much as her various talents as a musician, vocalist and songsmithess have improved over the years, she doesn't seem to have aged a day.
She has a new website here and a MySpace page here. Check her out and be delighted.
