Heather Nova emerged in the early 90s. Her first record was hailed as “a stoned black olive among drab greens” by NME and her second album Oyster went on to top the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and took her on her first world tour. Her next album, Siren, established her firmly in the world of alternative rock, with singles charting worldwide, and invitations to play major festivals in Europe, the UK and America, as well as song placement in major tv shows and film soundtracks.
She soon gathered a wide fan base due in part to her compelling live shows. In the early days she spent eight months a year on the road and her sound was unique – one of the first rock bands to combine a cello with distorted guitars, and top it all with her ethereal sirens-call voice.
We’re proud to present “one of pop’s most enduring enigmas” for her Jazz Cafe debut this winter.
