SOY LO QUE SOY
Dreaming can lead an artist to create music that breaks barriers. This thought crosses Debi Nova’s mind every time she sits down at the piano to write a song. An artist with extraordinary musical talent, an exquisite personality and a captivating smile, Nova soars with the music she creates. A singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist since the age of 14, Nova set out on a path to achieve her dream at 17, when she signed her first record deal. Since then, she has been involved in six projects nominated for a Grammy award, a dance song which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance charts, and has collaborated with artists including Black Eyed Peas, Sean Paul, Sergio Mendes, Ricky Martin y Franco De Vita.

Songs which transmit warmth, positivity, contagious emotions, and unleash her capitivating spirit. The album was recorded in Mondomix Studios in Argentina, and produced by award winning producer Cachorro López.
Nova released her first album, “Luna Nueva,” in 2010 on Decca Records. Her first single from “Luna Nueva”, “Drummer Boy”, reached #5 on the Billboard dance charts. That same year, she participated in two of the most watched TV shows in North America, “Dancing With The Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance”. In 2011, Nova was invited by the Venezuelan singer Franco De Vita to participate in the recording of the song “Si Quieres Decir Adiós” (If You Want To Say Goodbye) , which was included in Franco de Vita’s album “En Primera Fila” (Front Row). She toured with De Vita throughout Latin America, performing more than 60 shows with the singer.
In 2011, MTV Latin America awarded her the prize MTV Chiuku: Agent of Change, for her work in the United Nations’ campaign “UNITE to end violence against women”, and in April 2012, she was named ambassador of YUNGA (Youth and United Nations Global Alliance).
Recently, Nova was selected as the official voice of the Central American Olympics, San José 2013, with the song “Arriba Arriba” (Get Up, Get Up) and was also invited to participate in the TEDx Joven Pura Vida (Youth Pure Life) conference, where she shared her story, her music and encouraged young people to follow their dreams.
In 2013, Debi Nova’s goal is to captivate the world with her new songs and further consolidate herself as a Latin/crossover artist.
