New members to the NOVA-K Team

We are proud to welcome the newest member of the NOVA-K team, Dale Echnoz. Dale studied music composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and CU Boulder. He eventually made his way to Los Angeles and worked at several major studios including The Record Plant and Motown Records’ HitsvilleStudios. After a hiatus from music, Dale returned to Colorado and the music spark was reignited. His contributions to this project have also inspired the rest of us to reach higher.

Chuck Webster has been a lyrical partner for a number of years. His deep seated interest in the human condition as well as being a member of Mensa International, brings an in-depth view of the world. From man’s ancient beginning to the future possibilities of mankind, Chuck helps NOVA-K to explore these many facets of being human.

Mike Sass is another lyrical partner that has contributed to NOVA-K over the years. Mike brings the knowledge and passion of someone who has experienced the ups and downs of life. His CU education and unique perspective brings real life exploration of the art of songwriting.


As 2014 draws to a close we release a new album

It has been a long time coming but NOVA-K is releasing a new album called: “Take a Step Back”. We are pleased to announce a new member of our collaborative team – Mr. Kevin Johnson.

Kevin plays many instruments and has also contributed music to this latest effort. You can hear him on guitar, bass, keyboards, saxophone and yes, even accordion. He studied music and production in college and it shows.

The studio has gotten some major upgrades as well. New mixing board, new compressor, new computer, new microphone and preamp as well as a new library of sounds which has added a more robust sound to this latest album.

Joe and Mark are still adding their unique style and sound to NOVA-K. The overall feel to the album is a bit different than the previous endeavors, but  we hope you enjoy this one as well.

So Take a Step Back and Take a Listen.
