Nova, a Bronx native, and current Atlanta resident has had other brushes with the world of film. His hit single ‘Dale’ set the mood for ALLBLCK’S third episode of AMC’s original show, Covenant. The use of his hit came as a pleasant surprise to the star as he also attended the red carpet for the debut. He has also guest-starred on a notable reality show, Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta and obtained a part in biopic, ‘All Eyez On Me’.

His status as an artist making an impact on the world was solidified when Rolling Stone named him the ‘Global Artist to Watch’. Receiving such a title from an iconic publication serves as motivation for Nova to produce the highest quality of music. International Nova has performed alongside giants such as French Montana, Musiq Soulchild, and Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. His performances can only be described as electrifying but also soulful. He uses the music that warmed him over his childhood and amps up the Afro-Latino beats.

Orion Paxx – What really inspired me to write, and get into music, was probably while I was in school. I was like 14, and one of my friends showed me some rhymes he wrote, and I was like, “you wrote that?” So after that, I thought to myself, “if he can write something like that, I know I can, and it’ll be way more dope!” So I got myself a notebook and started writing. Inspiration is also drawn from artists I listen to. From Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie, Tupac, Snoop, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Common, Wu-Tang, Talib Kweli, Kanye, Big Pun, Fat Joe. The list can go on forever!! Those are just a few names.

 

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Orion Paxx – I think I probably realized that music was something I wanted to do, and take more seriously was prob around the time I came back from Japan, on tour. Which was amazing!! That was around 2015. My team and I have really been going hard for the past 3 years. In the studio, working, creating, etc.

Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?

Orion Paxx – I think what is unique about myself, is that I’ve had the opportunity to travel and live in different places around the world. My pops were in the military (Air Force) So my family and I moved and traveled a lot. I lived in Japan for 4 years, when I was little, all throughout the U.S. also I lived in Italy for 4 years, which was an amazing experience, by the way! In Italy is where I really got into music, started writing, etc. I have been all over Europe. From Paris, Switzerland, Brussels, all thru Germany, and I think having that experience made me a more well-rounded person, that can appreciate different cultures and different people. So the music is not one-sided, because of that, it’s a blend of everything, a representation of me. And it’s dope!! If you enjoy good music, then you def have to check me out!!
