Matthew McGilvery

NOVA is an album that I crafted as an aural escape from the instability of 2020.

Grinding every day to secure enough money to rent a place with my partner, while managing my music business from a shelter bunk was how I started producing NOVA at the start of 2020. It's production was continued from my apartment throughout the rest of 2020 into January 2021 with creative assistance from my partner.

Throughout 2020 I confronted the responsibility of rebuilding my life after 2 years of personal and financial turmoil. Newfound stability in my living situation, mental health(thanks to my lovely therapist), and in my relationship to my partner and myself, was a welcome change, but one that took me the entire year to adjust to.

Producing this album soundtracked my efforts in starting again and being a more full and present person, even in the midst of my recurrent struggles with Chronic Depression, Anxiety Disorder, and PTSD. Releasing 3 EPs, 2 singles, and a large array of multimedia content through the year gave my focus and purpose an ember, and the evergreen support from my listeners reignited a flame in me to continue making the art that we enjoy while having the faith and efficacy to handle the rest.

The album is dedicated to my grandmother Wilma, and my great aunt Vickie, who passed away towards the end of this album's production, and whose wisdom and grace guide me evermore.
