Today, Heather Nova announced a headline show at Whelan’s, 10th September. Tickets €22 go on sale this Friday at 9am.
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 8 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. There was an intensity and a uniqueness to her live shows that created a buzz and a solid following. She released 3 live albums – “Blow” , “Live from the Milky Way” and “Wonderlust”.
The London Evening Standard recently called her “one of pop’s most enduring enigmas” for good reason. She has always made her own way and has had little regard for the current trends.

The first thing that grabs your attention about Northern Ireland singer songwriter Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice honed from relentless busking throughout Ireland. Her vocals seem to channel the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick whilst also acknowledging her all time favourite Alanis Morissette. Working with well know NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha, her first single Dangerous blissfully blends gently strummed acoustic guitars with soaring string arrangements and rich electric licks.
Dangerous picked up plays across BBC Radio Ulster and spot plays on Bob Harris’s Radio 2 show. New single Constitution (available from September 28) picks up the mantle and will surely secure more daytime plays and playlist additions in the coming weeks.
