AKOVA is the love child of Cat Empire and Xavier Rudd.

"The one-man roots machine is adventurous and playful. Bringing the party by simply seeing how much sound he can project.” Timeoff Benny Doyle

“AKoVA has steered clear of complicated effects and chosen to instead to master the acoustic elements.” Scene Magazine Lucinda Bopf

“AKoVA is an amazing live performer. His music is not only original and fun it has real substance and meaning. I would recommend any to go and take the time to see this guy perform. I still can’t believe it’s just one guy playing all those instruments at the same time…..What a showman.” Adam Iffland 92.5 Gold Fm

"Now that was a show!" Settlers Tavern, Margaret River WA

“I love listening to AKOVA. His music makes me dance every time and then inspires me to become a better conscience human being.” Salvador – Under The Sea RABBIT RADIO

AKOVA, finalist in the prestigious Musicoz songwriting awards, Australian Songwriting Competition and Unsigned Only world songwriting competition.

Recently split from successful duo Shoebox, AKOVA has embarked on his solo venture.

This multi-instrumentalist plays a high energy, uplifting style of Gypsy,Roots, World. It's catchy and totally original. With guitars, vocals, cajon, djembe, ankle bells, kazoo and an assortment of other percussion instruments. It's an experience for the eyes, feet and soul.

This is not your average solo acoustic act.
With tribal drumming, driving rhythms and lyrics that make you glad to be alive. AKOVA has no problem filling a festival stage with sound. Such as Nimbin Roots Festival, Byron Bay Reggae Fest, Home Festival, Swell Fest, Festival of Love and D'Alliance.
Sharing the stage with acts such as Ash Grunwald, Phil Emmanuel, King Tide, US sensation Set Sail and Raz Bin Sam and the Lion I.
It's an amazing musical performance.
AKOVA never disappoints.

Just released his debut single "Lets Get Messy" which is being played on national radio. Currently touring CD, Earth Recruit, nationally.
