Nava Explores R&B Sound with Release of New Music
Los Angeles, CA – June 22, 2018 — With a background in soca and a passion for telling his story through music, Nava is a rising star from Trinidad and Tobago. After spending years touring and collaborating with soca superstar Machel Montano, Nava returns with the release of his R&B EP, “now(here);” on June 22.
Flavourmag’s article on one of Nava’s singles, “Blind,” reads, “Instead of worrying what people will think, he focuses on finding ways to break barriers whilst telling his story through music.”
“now(here);” is a project that explores relationships and heartbreak, with a sound that reflects Nava’s life and current experiences. The title “now(here);” signifies moving from “nowhere” to “now here,” while the semicolon signifies that for Nava, the journey is not over and he is just getting started. With heart-tugging composition and soothing vocals, this project shows exactly what it feels like to be “now(here);”.
Niji Magazine writes, “Nava makes sure he shows no fear with his music and likes to experiment with new sounds.” From a young age, Nava has gained valuable experience in music and has the potential to go even further as his sound changes and matures.
