Heather "Nova" Frith was born in Bermuda and raised in the US, but her career took off in England, after a timid EP, These Walls (1990), had floundered. Influenced by both Kate Bush's art-pop and Chrissie Hynde's frank woman-rock, Nova soon came to symbolize openly sexual lyrics (that invite male fantasies more than anything else) and cello-driven arrangements.
Glow Stars (Butterfly, 1993) was the album that revealed her vernacular folk-rock. Bare, Spirit in You, Mothertongue, Frontier, Shaking the Doll are a sort of concept album about her Freudian obsessions.

Blow (Butterfly, 1993) was the first of a series of live albums. Clearly, the live setting is a favorite of Heather Nova. It features Maybe An Angel, Sugar, Doubled Up, Light Years.

Success came with Walk This World, the single taken from Oyster (Big, Cat, 1995), an album that also contains Blue Black and other charming, dream-like ballads (notably Verona).

Siren (Sony, 1998) is her most elaborate work to date, ranging from simple, catchy lullabies such as London Rain and I'm the Girl, hard-rock numbers such as Blood of Me and Widescreen, the trip-hop ambience of Winterblue and Not Only Human, and old-fashioned ballads such as Avalanche and Ruby Red.

Wonderlust (MCA, 1999) is another live album, and South (MCA, 2001) is another collection of glamorous melodies, notably I'm No Angel, If I Saw You In a Movie, Gloomy Sunday.
