Maya Nova is a soulful jazz vocalist born in Bulgaria, spent a good part of her performing career in Singapore and currently living in NYC.
After earning her BA Degree from the Popular Music Department of National Music Academy in Bulgaria, she pursued the live music stage with several leading jazz and funk groups. Appearances at Sofia Jazz Fall Festival with her Jazz Quartet and the popular TV program “Todor Kolev's Night Show” with National Music Academy Big Band followed shortly. Nova was also a finalist at two Voice Competitions for young talents: “Golden Orpheus” and “Star Moments”, where she performed with the Bulgarian National Radio Big Band.
In 1998, Nova moved on to tour Europe: Denmark, Norway, England, Cypress and in 2002 she moved to Singapore.
Making the vibrant island her second home for 10 years, she established herself as one of the sought after jazz vocalists, appearing at concerts, festivals, clubs and events not only in Singapore but also in Malaysia, India, China, South Korea and combining it with the position of an adjunct voice teacher at the Contemporary Music Performance Department of LaSalle College of The Arts.
In 2009, Nova was a semi-finals of the famed Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition at the 43rd Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
"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
