I wonder if everyone here also gets the Heather Nova Newsletter? I was pleased to get the update the other day. I didn't realize she was already six months pregnant. The newsletter says she plans to tour again in the summer, but I'm worried she won't. I keep thinking of these musicians who had a baby and then disappeared for a while like, Tanya Donnelly and Sarah McLachlan. The reason I'm worrying about this is because I'm desperate to see Heather live, as I never have, and because I'm actually going to be in Europe next June. I would be sad to finally make it to Europe and then not be able catch a Heather show when I'm there. I've got my priorities, you see. ;)
So do you all love Storm? I do, but I think every song is too short. I guess I'm greedy when it comes to Heather.
And, I'm going crazy without the Heather Nova mailinglist. Are any of you on that? I sincerely hope they'll bring it back. I never knew I'd miss it so. I'm addicted to Heather news, even Heather tidbits, Heather anything, I guess.
All this time, I never thought to look for an LJ community for Heather. I feel dumb. :P
I really suck at introductory posts, but yeah, hi. I've been a Heather fan since I heard Heart & Shoulder on the Felicity soundtrack in 1999. It was by far the best song on there (though I do admit to a fondness for Amy Jo Johnson's Puddle of Grace), so soon after I went and bought Siren, which has one of my favorite songs on it (Winterblue). Then came Oyster, Glow Stars... Now I have 22 Heather CDs, not counting stuff like the I Am Sam soundtrack and the ATB CD with her vocals. "Spirit In You" still eludes me, though.
I hate to bore, so I'm sorry if I am... just trying to get across the fact I'm a huge fan, and I'm glad to have some other people who share my passion. As for Storm, I don't think I'd regret saying it's probably Heather's best album yet. I liked South a lot, but something seemed...missing. South seemed more about the music, and Storm has a much bigger emphasis on her voice itself, like some of her older songs. It's just some of the most beautiful work she's ever done, not to mention there's no bad or even half-good song - it's all great. There was no way I could wait for the US release and not import, since it could be a year off like last time.
Yeah, I'll stop now. :P Hi again people.
Oh right... might as well. I'm Mike, 22, I do graphic design, blah blah. I'm not very interesting though, so be warned. :P
An LJ group for Heather! I'm so excited!
I too love Storm. I think it's an incredible album. I do think it's probably her best since Oyster. I love Aquamarine especially. I don't think there's a song on there I don't like - which is so great after the pleasant but uneven South.
oh, wow.. i didn't expect there to be a heather nova community on LJ <3.
her voice is amazing, as is the music. simply put.
btw, the name's Michelle. I'm 18, from Virginia.. 'ello. :]
