Danny Nova is a world-class vocalist whose music-making abilities cannot be denied. As a songwriter, Nova is admired for his fine blending of lyrical content with melodic and flowing musical compositions. Peer songwriters consider his lyrical content as seasoned, poised, sensitive and profound with a thin lining of obscurity.
With his four-plus octave vocal range, hitting full voice E notes above high C, this raspy-voiced, acoustic artist would turn the heads of many famed vocalists such as Steve Perry, Ian Gillian, Robert Plant, Rod Stewart, Joe Turner and Steven Tyler.
Recipient of a 2006 Talent in Motion Magazine "TIMMY AWARD" for "Singer Of The Year," Nova also received three 2005 Honorable mentions from Billboard Magazine. His original composition, "Lay My Guns Down," placed in the Top 500 songs in the Billboard World Songwriting Contest and Nova''s "Crystal Clear" and "Calamity Heart" placed in the Top 1500. In addition, "Lay My Guns Down" advanced to the third round of judging for the 2005 International Songwriting Competition.
In March 2006, Nova auditioned for the CBS series, "Rock Star Supernova.” Immediately following Nova''s videotaped performance, he was whisked away and interviewed by CBS reporters. Within two hours, his performance was being aired every hour over the next few days on CBS to promote "Rock Star Supernova.” The video of his performance can still be seen on https://www.tradebit.com. After careful consideration, Nova opted not to follow through with being a participant on the show.
In June of 2006, TV producers at Time/Warner CTV, approached Nova with the concept of starring in a new TV series, called "Musical Poets In Motion." The show''s concept is to seek qualified, undiscovered up-and-coming artists to capture their rise to national and international acclaim. Nova is captured performing in adventure-like settings such as a concert on a stage boat in the middle of Lake Hopatcong, NJ for 2,500 spectators who were on 300 boats, a walking performance on the Seaside Heights, NJ boardwalk, a performance under the archway of NYC''s Washington Square Park and a performance at an entertainment industry''s 4th of July party and fireworks.
In November 2006, Nova performed his first solo-headlining concert at the Baker Theater, along with Hall Of Famer Dave Mason (Traffic and Fleetwood Mac). The concert was filmed for reality TV show "Musical Poets In Motion" and for an up and coming DVD release.
In Feb 2007, Nova traveled to London to shoot footage for "Musical Poets In Motion" and for his latest song touted to be a London favorite entitle "London." Footage being shot at notable places such as Big Ben, Buckingham Place, The Tower Bridge, Abby Road Studios, Camden Town, The Beatles Store, etc., will prove to be entertaining, informative and much more.
In Sept 2007, Nova kicks off his fall tour. The tour dates encompassed major cities in New England, The Mid-West & North East Coast.
In the Spring of 2008, Nova performed "Live on The Hawk Radio" 105.7 FM, a one hour show broadcasted live from the infamous Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, which is also known to be the performance home of Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and many more world known artists. Nova also performed for the Danny Federici memorial at the Pony and his performance was aired on many metropolitan TV stations around the globe.
In June 2008, Nova was booked to headline New York City''s legendary Carnegie Hall. Carnegie Hall receives 4,500 artist press kit submissions a year from major record labels and agents looking to engage a Carnegie Hall booking for their artists. Nova will be one of the only contemporary artists to perform at Carnegie Hall for the 2008-2009 season. This in itself is a lifetime achievement. The performance is scheduled for Saturday, November 15, 2008 at 8 PM.
Tickets are ON SALE NOW! at the Carnegie Hall box office or can be purchased at https://www.tradebit.com and Carnegie Charge 212-247-7800 with debit or credit card.
