With his new solo project, Nik Nova is reflecting on his musical roots and is now releasing his first solo album, "At The Crossroads". It contains ten songs whose singer/songwriter foundations transport influences from blues, rock, grunge and folk and address different emotional states, carried by Nik's changeable and absorbing vocals.
For the Cologne native, the album is an affair of the heart: "Loss and grief, the desire for a better society and time, longing, anger, fear and insecurity: There is hardly anyone who does not feel all of this at the moment. I hope my music can be a catalyst to confront these issues in a healthy way and ultimately take something positive out of it.”
The final overall result is an intense and personal album, which clearly shows that it comes from a gifted musician and songwriter who knows how to translate emotions into sounds and to create an individual musical character from a wide variety of influences. And it's a reminder that a time will come that is less hopeless and stagnant, especially in cultural and interpersonal terms, and when music can once again be a social event.
