Nova Records Kronos Quartet
Wow. It's just getting better and better. Nova Music Productions was recently selected to record the world-famous Kronos Quartet live in concert at the U of A Centennial Hall on Friday, March 26. San Francisco's Kronos melds a stunning multi-media visual show to incredible material, tone, and technique, bringing classical music firmly into the new milennium. Nova also recorded Kronos earlier in the day during a live filming of their upcoming "Sun Rings" Video. A big thank you to Scott Fraser and all the KQ organization.

Sons of the Pioneers record with Nova Studios!
You know you've heard them sing "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" many times. Legendary vocal group The Sons of the Pioneers brought their timeless classic Western sound to Tucson for a recording session led by Nashville Producer Stan Corliss. It was truly an honor to work with these terrific talented gentlemen. I literally got chills up my spine hearing their world-renowned blend of vocal harmony in person. You can catch them live on stage this winter at the Hidden Valley Inn. To Dale, Gary, Randy, and Ken - the honor was truly mine.

Nova provides sound for international flamenco extravaganza
Nova Music Productions has again been selected to provide live concert sound for
Calo Flamenco, a brilliant international flamenco music and dance show. The sold-out February concerts took place at the 3rd Street Theatre In Phoenix. Calo Flamenco features award-winning dancers including Martin Gaxiola, and a dazzling display of costuming and lighting. This is Nova's 4th consecutive year with this amazing show.

BorderBeat and Tom Russell choose Nova
Border Beat Magazine recently hosted nationally-known folksinger Tom Russell. Nova was recommended and chosen to handle sound for the concert and received rave reviews from Tom, guitarist Andy Hardin, Border Beat, and most importantly, the audience.

Canadian Touring Group Chooses Nova
Hailing from Vancouver, B.C., The Be Good Tanyas recently wrapped up their west coast tour with a stop in Tucson. Featuring sweet vocals, incredibly smooth harmonies, and a variety of acoustic instruments, the 3 gals (and drummer Ike) wowed the large audience with guitar, mandolin, banjo, slide electric guitar, harmonica and more. Live sound was provided by Nova.

Singer's Workshop graduates place high in "American Idol' competition
Several recent graduates of Nova Music Productions' Star Singer's Recording Workshop have advanced in open competitions against other top-notch singers from all over the United States.
Dario (call him "D") Di Conchea
appeared in American Idol 1 and was flown to LA to be taped for an upcoming episode of American Idol 2. Thanks in part to his training and recording here at Nova, "D" has offers from record labels and management agencies. His great looks, smooth, sexy R&B sounds, and unyielding drive to succeed give him a great chance to go all the way.
Marie Brantley
is showing a promising future as an up-and-coming C&W singer. Her powerful voice has earned her finalist status in the ongoing C&W oriented talent search at Chuy's. Another Star Singer's Workshop graduate, Lorenzo Alvarado, finished in the top third at the competition held at the Ava Amphitheatre at Casino Del Sol. Marie and D also finished in the top third the same night, meaning all 3 workshop graduates are on their way to bigger and brighter singing careers. Congratulations to all!
