Two Time Grammy Nominated Karina Nuvo is propelled by a powerful heart-force that ensures she never backs away from adversity. Nothing, not even a debilitating illness,or a recent Vocal chord surgery will keep her from pursuing her dreams.
She found her home and her strength in her voice and will never let go.
Karina couples classic musical influences with her own heartfelt instincts and authenticity, resulting in an unrivaled sound best described as Nuvo Soul. Her vocal styling conveys a sultry unapologetic power, balanced by her sensual clarity and broadened along a gospel / soul edge.
The singer hails from Miami and is a first generation Cuban-American. She writes and sings fluently in both English and Spanish, extending her appeal across cultures. Her music encompasses all cultures, races and genders with gospel, R&B, disco, and Latin jazz. As long as it's soulful and authentic, it's Karina. She's so versatile, and has worked with some of the most distinguished jazz, R& B and contemporary singers in the world. It wasn't until Karina was 19 years old, however, that she became aware that her voice was far beyond ordinary, which explains an initial bout with stage fright. She began performing original songs around Miami, but decided she needed to follow her aspirations to the West Coast. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career she was stricken by illness and forced to abandon her dreams for six long years. And with the same uncompromising strength that she lives by today, Karina emerged with an unstoppable creative drive.
Meanwhile, she has selected an amazing team of talented people to ensure her vision can be realized. Currently Karina has finished her highly anticipated Debut album "NUVOSOUL" in which she Co wrote -produced and sang in English And Spanish. It blends all that is true to Karina's Style, with Soul, Jazz , R&B and Latin all mixed together for a truly unique and inspiring Album. She has toured all over the US and parts of the world and has headlined some prestigious Jazz festivals Including The Playboy Jazz festival and The Sicily Blues and Wine Tour. Karina also established her NUVO-VOICE Workshops and has been teaching kids of all ages to Find, Honor and Protect the Voice that was given to them.
It's always a "New" adventure for Miss Karina Nuvo with Power, Passion, Class and of course NUVOSOUL!
