Singer/songwriter Carolyne Neuman, known professionally as NOVI, does it her way, fusing powerful vocals with soulful, penetrating melodies— and sass.
She draws from her Oregon roots to ground herself creatively, and the result is a poignant equilibrium wherein quirky, liberated lyrics get expressed through a broad range of musical styles, from rap-infused dance rhythms to artful and touching ballads. It makes sense and feels right even when it technically shouldn’t. NOVI landed on the musical map in 2012 when her song “All The Way” was featured in the season finale of the WB’s One Tree Hill. Since then, she’s appeared on many soundtracks, including Marvels The Punisher, MTV’s Faking it, and the CW’s Charmed to name a few. Her recent single, “Tiger Blood” was added to the ‘Fresh Finds’ editorial playlist on Spotify and her single “Long Day” with actor Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars) was featured on France’s Viral playlist on Spotify. NOVI has spent the last year writing and recording in preparation for a limited live tour, releasing several new songs which have already been picked up by popular shows; “Stick to You” will be featured on Jessica Jones Season 3. The new CBS show entitled The Red Line highlights her ballad “So Profound” and NOVI’s new single with Tyler Blackburn, “Can’t Love me” will be featured on his new hit series Roswell on the CW in April.
