"Joshua 'Super-Nova' Novak was clubbed over the head in 1962 by a mob composed of such notables as David Bowie, Crazy Mick from the Stones, and a group of people who would later be known for founding the non-hippie variety of free love in deepest Manhattan. Joshua was packed in ice for 40 years and became the world's first successful time traveler. Seems Joshua was too much of a threat in both talent and ability to make all the pretty boys and girls swoon. We're lucky to have Joshua's voice fill the air in these times and once you've seen him perform, you'll agree that not only is superstardom in his future, but Bowie and Jagger really didn't have a choice. He still has the same effect on all the pretty boys and girls and maybe even more than the old days.His brand of cool has to come in small doses. As a species, humans have evolved out of a tolerance for that much cool all at once." -Professor Felix
A self taught musician and alleged bastard royalty, Joshua Novak burst onto the Denver music scene in early 2000--young, carefree and seemingly touched with effortless pop magic. Since then, he has become a celebrated fixture of the scene. Recently he placed in the top 20 out of 560 bands in the DENVER POST's BEST OF THE UNDERGROUND. He is a five time WESTWORD SHOWCASE nominee, one of fifteen winners in the MODMUSIC RECORDS INDIE BAND SEARCH in N.Y. and has played RED ROCKS as part of the epic MONOLITH FESTIVAL which included acts like TV ON THE RADIO, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, THE KILLS, JUSTICE and others.
He has shared the stage with the likes of ELF POWER, BRENDAN BENSON, EVAN DANDO, WOVENHAND, AZURE RAY, THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, THE FRUIT BATS (etc..), and played Denver's best venues including The Gothic, The Bluebird, Hi-Dive, Larimer Lounge, The Oriental Theater, The Walnut Room and even at the famous club, The Bitter End, in New York City.
He has received sensational reviews in BILLBOARD MAGAZINE, WESTWORD, THE DENVER POST and THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS as well as notable on-line sources and music mags such as KAFFEINE BUZZ, DENVER SYNTAX & INDIE-MUSIC.COM.
Recently, Joshua's highly anticipated full-length album, DEAD LETTERS, was released to critical aclaim. Both the DENVER POST and WESTWORD included it in their best albums of the year lists for 2010.
