”Open, her debut recording, sees Nova wrapping her vocal chords around a selection of mostly standards, extracting the most out of familiar tunes with her surprising vocal range and uninhibited improvisations. ~ Ian Patterson's review of “Open”at allaboutjazz.com

“Nova parlays her international experiences into some well-crafted, almost slick performances that are completely ready of consumption, consideration and artistic digestion...that thing that makes us all better.” ~ C. Michael Bailey review of “Days” at allaboutjazz.com
