Nova Vox

 San Francisco, California, USA

Engaging and haunting, lavish and rough, the music of Nova Vox strikes new ground in the already heavily treaded alternative domain. If you want to feel emotion; if you like your pop to make you think, this is it.

Biography

Started in the San Francisco bay area, Nova Vox began with their first EP "Living" which drew in fans from around the area to shows at local hot spots on the west coast.

With the release of their second EP "Pacify" and a new set of singles, the band is fast gained momentum. New musical ideas and a breath of fresh inspiration have lead to the creation of such gems as "Anesthetic" and "Revolt". This surge of creative force in Nova Vox has driven them to find new territory in the already heavily treaded alternative domain.

The thought provoking and often introspective vocal stylings of Geoff Townsend, the sonic and well textured abilities of keyboardist Nelson Garca, the confident and melodic bass of Bubba Glanz, and the the skilled shotgun like drums of Mike Mandas make up a band that is as entertaining live as it is recorded.

Lyrics

Thinking Out Loud

Written By: Geoff Townsend

We often search for truth,
But then we don’t know what to do,
When it all turns out a lie…

But having me and you,
Takes away my black and blue,
And lets the sun shine…

(Pre Chorus)

But I know that sometime…
You’re going to need to hear me say the things that I can’t seem to say…

(Chorus)

You know I adore you,
I’d do anything for you,
But I don’t know how to say it out loud…

Take a look at my face,
I’m a total disgrace,
Because the words could change everything,

If I could only get them out…

The notions that I keep,
Always seem so deep,
Till the moment I breath them into life…

I may follow my own way,
But I know that if I stray,
You’ll help me to put it all to right…

(Pre Chorus)

But I know that sometime…
You’re going to need to hear me say the things that I can’t seem to say…

(Chorus)

You know I adore you,
I’d do anything for you,
But I don’t know how to say it out loud…

Take a look at my face,
I’m a total disgrace,
Because the words could change everything,

If I could only get them out…

Do You Know My Name

Written By: Geoff Townsend

Nobody wants to be the villian,
No one wants to be thrown down the well, well...

Nobody wants to be the hero either,
unless there's something in it for themselves,

So we try, and you just might find that it's all just a silly game,
So you start to think you could fall,
And you can't find your way home,
Not anymore,

But I want you to remember my face my friend,
When you fall on your darkest days,

You can say, that you know my name...

Do you know my name?

You can call my name...
You can call my name...

Everybody wants to be forgiven,
But nobody wants to stand in line,

Everybody want something for nothing,
At least around here from time to time,

So we try, and you just might find that it's all just a filthy game,
So you start to think you could fall,
And you can't find your way home,
Not anymore,

But I want you to remember my face my friend,
When you fall on your darkest days,

You can say, that you know my name...

Do you know my name?

You can call my name...
You can call my name...

Shame

Written By: Geoff Townsend

There's a cloud over my shoulder,
But I'm not worried about the rain,
Everything I see is over,
Even though it feels the same,

You don't know me, you don't know me now,

It's a shame...
It's a shame...
It's the same shame, allways the same for you...

You should go down to the river,
And you know what you should do,
If everything you see is older,
Then you know what you should do,

It's all clear now, where it's headed to,

It's a shame...
It's a shame...
It's the same shame, allways the same for you...
