The Nova Star is a star that suddenly increases in brightness to several times its normal magnitude, and then returns to its original appearance within a few years. Robbie Nova is that type of star, with only one exception, he only gets brighter!

Robbie Nova was born in Queens, NY. Raised in a church going family, Nova sang in the choir for the majority of his life. He learned to play the drums by ear and not long after he became the drummer boy in church.

During his high school years, Nova's true singing personality began to shine. It was then that he realized that he had real talent and began to take it seriously. Through the years, he developed his skills in music; including songwriting, playing the piano and producing. His musical gift embodies an artist with a soulful song craft.

Robbie Nova has demonstrated his performing abilities in local events in the five boroughs of New York. Rocking crowds in venues like Club Amazura, Club Prime, the Legendary Village Underground, and Spotlight Live in Times Square; just to name a few.

He has performed at major events like the 2008 Giants Super Bowl party in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and The Atomic Dog Show at the Shrine theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
