Music is life and I inten

Equipped with nothing more than a microphone and his college-issued laptop, a Southern California musician named Sanova is a fresh breath of music that may help Los Angeles County regain its hold on the music industry; all while remaining a prominent inspiration to local independent artists. With only the most basic equipment and an impressive amount of know-how, Sanova has independently composed, produced, and released three full-length albums and one music video of such high standard that he has garnered much more attention than just any starving artist; Sanova recently won a round-trip ticket to SXSW Music Festival and a chance to grace the stage as part of Power 106 fm's “Who's Next in Hip Hop” contest. All through his own effort, Sanova's viral presence has already spread to over 13 countries.

Connecting elements of Electro and Hip-Hop to Jazz and Reggae, Sanova's music is very well-rounded as he nimbly navigates around his in-house production with very versatile lyrics. A Los Angeles native, Sanova encapsulates the vibe and persona of the south bay with every song, guaranteed to surprise the listener who is already all too familiar with some of the drab passed off in today's popular music.

Having graced the stage at this year's SXSW Music Festival and maintaining regular performances in Long Beach, Sanova is already planning his second California Cross-College Tour where he performs at all the major universities from San Diego to Northridge. Sanova makes feel-good music that students can enjoy, and also touches on real-life subjects with sophisticated lyrics boasting through his young and care-free demeanor.

Sanova writes, produces, records, and engineers every one of his own records and albums. He even plays a roll editing and directing his music videos and promo spots. “This kid is seriously talented”, as proclaimed by a Music Theory professor at the University of California State Dominguez Hills. Possessing the knowledge of an audio engineering graduate, Sanova makes the most out of what he has to use and creates astoundingly professional quality music and videos that continues to grow his impressive fan base.
