Learning how to accept peoples differences and love all peoples uniqueness shaped his open minded approach to music. Music would be a way of getting thorough hard times for him growing up. At an odd turning point in his life...NOVA suffered from a rare blood disease that nearly took his life. After spending countless nights in the hospital with his family by his side and many prayers....a seemingly unavoidable tragedy...turned to a miraculous recovery. A young NOVA would learn the true value of life on that night...spending each day since....living by his own words of wisdom "Pray and Push".... ....praying and pushing each day to live out his true dream....of entertaining the world..... He sings.
With a profound nearly majestic ability to create unforgettable vocal arrangements that seem to never leave your head....singing well crafted harmonies and beautifully self-written choruses at times....while sounding like Louie Armstrong at others.....never one to take himself TOO seriously. He raps. Comparable to Jay-Z....Eminem.....effortlessly weaving beautiful soundscape tapestries of word and syllable play. Proving his skills on his local radio station Pittsburgh’s 106.7 WAMO...calling to freestyle over the air nearly nightly during WAMO’s Bad Boys Show with Kode Wred and J-Kruz and garnering critical acclaim for his creative and diverse songs he would submit to the "Battle of the Beats" segments.
NOVA built a buzz throughout the local hip hop community that catapulted him from no name....to potential signee. He performs. Unlike ANYTHING you have EVER SEEN BEFORE. Sharing the stages with Marcques Houston, Wiz Khalifa, Fat Al, Crave....and many of Pittsburgh’s budding stars. An award winning artist (2008 Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards: ’MySpace’ Artist of the Year’ and nominee for ’Male Artist of the Year’ as well as ’Single of the Year’)......NOVA takes pride in all angles of his craft. Having spent his earliest years in music creating songs utilizing video games music and a fisher price microphone next to his floor model Zenith television mono speaker....NOVA honed an uncanny versatility that makes nearly NO SOUND SAFE from his musical prowress.
For over 14 years NOVA has created songs that range from "a little prayer" country song....to "Determination of an Underground Rapper".....his talent is only overshadowed by his unending potential. Versatile, smart, and witty in his lyrical delivery...while skillful, creative, and wise in his rhyme schematics. NOVA has a way of creating what you were thinking of.....but never thought of.....all over an instrumental you would NEVER think you would like. ....and somehow......NOVA makes it work. He is an evolution in what you have come to expect in hip hop.........and music as a whole. Don’t call him a "Rapper".....in all phases of the word....NOVA is a "MUSICIAN". Read more on Last.fm.
