For Nova, completing her debut CD, Once Upon a Dream, was indeed a dream come true! She had been trying to make the album over a five year period. However, finally in 2001, the opportunity presented itself whilst Nova was performing in Cats in Stuttgart, working with the Musical Director, Ralph Abelein.

In 2010, Nova made a CD for children, simply entitled Children’s Musical Theatre, in collaboration with CRS Records. This was inspired by the birth of her daughter, Melody, and the role that music played in the first year of her life. It is in two sections, Wake Up and Wind Down.
At the end of 2014, Nova was asked to create the role of Kathryn in ‘Apartment 40C’, a new musical – book and lyrics by Ray Rackham, music by Tom Lees. This was premiered in December 2014 at the London Theatre Workshop, Fulham. Here is Nova singing one of Kathryn’s heart rending ballads, ‘A Child‘.
