A beautiful album that tugs at the heart strings
Rarely do you find a debut album which reflects such depth as Suspended in Gravity. The strength of Nora’s song writing makes this album a treat, although her husky vocals and great production gives this album legs. “Walk away” and “Garden of your heart” have always been favorites of mine as I have had the pleasure to hear many of these songs live. If you get a chance to see her live add her performance to the top of your list. She has plenty more brilliant songs hidden away. I will eagerly awaiting the follow up. Thank you Nora!

The angst years are over, I figured good music was too.
I came across this CD at a time when I thought I had outgrown any music I would ever love. I figured my angst years were over, and with it, any passionate music. I figured I would be resigned to listening to the mediocrity that is easy listening and adult contemporary. I figured that now that I had kids and a healthy relationship there would be little left that would speak to me in the world of music.

I was amazed to hear that someone had the skills of observation and the cognizance of the human condition and that that someone was a musical poet. The angst years are over and we can begin to examine the complexities and subtleties of our inner workings through Nora’s interpretation of life and how she became who she is.

Thank you for singing to me that there are things to feel.

Nora’s voice and guitar come off as nothing but sincere. There is nothing offered but the truth as she sees it whether it is a pleasant truth or not. You would be doing yourself a favor to own Suspended in Gravity.

Truthful and Emotional
I felt such raw emotion and honesty with Nora's Album, it isn't often that an artist can capture that kind of truth, peeling away the layers, totally exposing her naked feelings.

"Gravity" Cuts Like a Knife
If art is therapy then Nora Heffernan has produced a cathartic experience of tremendous power. Her debut album, 'Suspended in Gravity,' cuts her heart open and lets the blood seep in an Indigo Girls harmonic style that captivates the listener. Ranging from sadness to anger, the songs capture a spirit that is missing from most of popular music today. Whether it's a plaintive commentary on love in 'Happy' or the childlike sadness of 'Honor Thy Mother' Heffernan's songs are sure the resonate in the heart of many a listener. They certainly did with me.

Breathtaking!
This voice! An angelic voice, combined with amazing guitar that haunts. This musician is a storyteller that makes Stevie Nicks have a run for her money! I love the passion in the voice and the words that make everyone sit and listen, because we've all "been there" to some extent. Glad I reviewed this...now I have to purchase it!
