I just saw Heather Nova live in Berlin on Nov. 14th 2022, not knowing much about her music before the gig (tickets were a gift). And now I’m absolutely thrilled by this angelic voice and soul-touching song Everything Changes and surprised there was no guitar tab available on Sheet Music Plus, yet. That had to be changed!

Heather Nova bio
Accoring to Wikipedia, Heather Nova was born as Heather Allison Frith on Bermuda, a British overseas territory. Her mother is a native of Nova Scotia, Canada. And her father is a native of Bermuda. Nova spent most of her childhood with her family on a 42-foot-long (13 m) sailboat (named Moon) built by her father. Her family includes one sister, television reporter and fashion model Susannah, and one brother, reggae singer Mishka. The Friths were sailing most of the 1970s and part of the 1980s throughout the Atlantic and Caribbean waters and coasts.
Nova started playing guitar and violin at an early age, writing her first song when she was 12. She enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where she majored in film in 1989. She also sat in on poetry classes and wrote music to go with her student films. But songwriting remained her passion. After graduating from RISD, Nova moved to London. A place she called home for twelve years. She already had British citizenship due to her Bermudian origins.
