Nova Nardi is a Canadian pop artist of Italian-Brazilian descent based in Toronto. Singing since the age of four, Nova honed her talents through the church choir. Growing up listening to pop, classical, and rock music, Nova was influenced by the likes of, Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and the list goes on; by the age of 16, Nova had started writing her own songs.
Her 2012 single “I’m Gonna Be a Pop Star” appeared on the TV show Dance Moms, and was later featured on a slew of networks, including the E! Emmy Awards “Live from the Red Carpet,” MTVU Fandom Awards, Grammy Awards “Countdown to the Red Carpet” and the E! “Countdown to the Golden Globes” repeatedly between 2012 and 2015.
Although Nova is a performer at heart, she struggled with stage fright for many years so between 2012 – 2015 she began performing live regularly. For the next few years, Nova dove deeper into songwriting and was determined to find her ‘true voice’. “There are so many things one can write about, but I found myself asking, what do I really want to say or what kind of messages do I want to share with others?” It was a self discovery period for me and I had to go through it to find my voice.”
Nova Nardi is an advocate for mental health and has been involved in charity performances and fundraiser concerts since 2011. Her debut EP, I Want Your Love, was released in 2019 followed by other singles which can be heard on any online streaming service available.
