Interviews on German radio

Written by Perry Black

Now since the release date is coming up, if there are German members on the list, please pay attention to your local radio stations as surely the new release will be announced and played here soon. Next week for sure, according to the news page over at http://www.heathernova.de

Heather is going to be at the following places on these dates for interviews:

27.06.2005 München
28.06.2005 München
29.06.2005 Hamburg
30.06.2005 Hamburg
01.07.2005 Köln

And so maybe most of what we will be hearing will have been recorded, but we might get to catch a live interview
sometime, so keep your ears tuned in to the radio for sure next week...

Myself, typically listen to SWR1 and i think it is Monday night at about 23:00 that they play new releases, but it may
be SWR3, and since i am not sure, i am going to have to go to the web site to check (and hopefully find it...), and you might
want to do the same.


Redbird - the new album from Heather Watch the 'Coming soon' video that we created to promote Heather's album!

Redbird samples

Written by Cynthia Fridsma

You all know by now that Heather’s latest album will be available in August and perhaps have you heard the first samples of the Redbird album. If you watch the promotion video I created, than you have heard parts of the song Welcome.

If you haven’t, than you can go to the section highlights and watch the video, and if you go there, you can also check out the second video clip I created: ‘the sneak preview’, go to the section "Highlights, sneak preview".

Again I have used the fearie you can see in the first clip, but now with the 12 samples of the Redbird album. I have used the sound samples provided by Heinz Lamers (my colleague from heathernova.de) together with some promotion photos to use in the video clip.

Now you can enjoy the sneak preview I created using the faerie, the promotion photos from Redbird and the samples from Redbird.

P.S. you can pre-order the album too, go to http://www.wom.de/poprock/detail/-/hnum/9820656/rk/home/rsk/hitlist


Promotion video for Heather Nova

Written by Cynthia Fridsma

Heather once told me that she liked the ‘I wanna be your light’ Christmas special that I created last year. She found it abstract and was rather curious about the faerie that you can see in the clip and the way I used some footage from Heather’s ‘Gloomy Sunday’ video clip.

Running a heather nova site also means that we have to support Heather all the way and since Heather liked the Christmas special, I decided to create a promotion clip about Heather’s Redbird album that she will release in August 2005 and I have used a few parts from Heather’s song ‘Welcome’ that you can find on the Redbird album.

Are you curious enough? Well . . . than take a look and go to the section ‘Highlights’ and enjoy the video.

Additional info:
Go to the section ‘Multimedia, A tribute to Heather, Xmas special’ to see the Christmas special clip.

Massimo have now covered a song that you can find on Heather’s Siren album.

I recorded Massimo’s guitar play last year  at my place in Amsterdam. I recorded Massimo’s version of What a feeling on the same time as his ‘dark’ version of Ruby Red that you can hear on the cd-project site.

Go to the section “Music, What a feeling” on the CD-project site to hear this version of What a feeling.

Quoting Gerhard Will
Hi Cynthia,
I found some links on the credits page pointing still to novaforums. After the software crash we had, novaforums was rebuild new underthe new address www.heathernova.net - The Heather Nova Network.

After having been a long time member and doing some admin work like the pictures and news section, I took over the complete site a few weeks ago. There will not be a big change as of adminstrators or so.

Please update your website accordingly. Wel you did already on the links section. thank you.

btw. here is a the new cover of welcome.

I wrote back (July 29, 2005):

Hi Gerd,

Thanks for the information and I have changed the credits page and thanks for the welcome cover, I have put it on our site!

Thanks again and take care ;-)


Quoting "Andy"

Dear friends,
Hello, this is Andy writing from Bournemouth in England. I've been a subscriber to you for a couple of years now & even though I don't contribute often I do enjoy the site very much and always read the newsletters.

It's an exciting time right now and I wonder if I could use your service to see if anyone would like a ticket for the London show on 30/09/05. The person I was going to go with cannot now make it and I wouldn't want it to go to waste. It cost me £17.50 which I guess is something close to 25 Euros. I would be happy to let it go for about £15/20 Euros or near offer.

It is a stalls-standing ticket and if anyone is interested maybe they could contact me.
If you can be of any help here I would be very grateful. Thanks and keep up the good work.


I wrote back (July 29, 2005):

Hi Andy,

I hope that you will find a buyer for your ticket. I am sure that there are enough people to buy your ticket if they find out that Nadia Lanman will make a guest appearance on September 30.

You can read all about it on the .com site at http://www.heathernova.com because there is a personal message from heather for all the fans! I will put your request on the front page of our .us site too (but I will not publish your email address).

When people want to have more information, I will send the message to you so that you do not have to worry about spam email.

Taka care and have a nice day,

webmaster & creative manager of HeatherNova.US
