NEW SINGLE RELEASE: SNAPSHOTS OF SKY! 

Snapshots of Sky
is a new baby that just popped out into the world. It's a love story of two real people who went through a rough journey to find each other and then to understand that they belong together like no other.

"And if the red, red sun
Sets the earth on fire,
I'll take a plane to meet you,
We'll dine in the light,
and if they sky slips away,
and all the things are done,
our love still remains." 

NOW AVAILABLE:
iTUNES   Amazon
 

THE ALBUM THAT I CO-WROTE (upcoming) 

My dear friend Jonna and especially insightful and fiery human, is releasing her album soon! We wrote many songs together!! Her voice is amazing to me. Here is what Jonna says about our song, Smile:    
"I noticed that I felt happier when I tried to find things to be grateful for... I would stop and try to hear the beautiful silence underneath the traffic hour... I would keep my eyes open for the beauty around me. Such as sun beams shining like diamonds in the snow."

GET CARRIED AWAY IN THE MOMENT... 

New LIVE VIDEO of me and my band! Get CARRIED AWAY with us!
I would like to share the energy of the moment with you - playing live in Maur, Switzerland! Special thanks to our video director Natasha Afanasyeva. 

MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE REVIEW - LIVE! 

“Her poignant words resonate amid intricate, piano-based melodies to create high-quality indie-pop similar to Regina Spektor and Yael Naim. While her style seems destined for the airwaves of NPR, there’s also crossover potential to pop and AAA radio formats. Her soaring tunes have a cinematic feel and would seem custom made for movie soundtracks.
Forova’s voice is sweet and distinctive...The strings and brass add luscious layers to the well-crafted songs, separating them from similar acts in the genre. Nikki Forova kept the audience entranced with a whirlwind of songs, both high-flying and touching. With music that conveys a wide range of emotion, many listeners will find Nikki Forova instantly relatable.”

- Corey Irwin      Music Connection review, May 2013














 

WELCOME TO MY NEW BAND MEMBERS! 

Last year I met two incredibly gifted and intuitive musicians who have years of experience of playing in the bands! Happy to announce they have joined me as a band and we are now taking our musical journey together. Michael Berweger is a double bass player, a singer and songwriter from Winterthur, Switzerland. Guillaume Andre is our percussionist (cajon, djembe and more), a great singer too, from Brussels, Belgium. And Lukas Zeublin, a gifted violinist, studying at the Music Conservatory at ZHDK, has joined our BAND as well. Super excited to have them join!

WHITE DANDELIONS - LIVE VIDEO 

New video just got released on Youtube:  WHITE DANDELIONS LIVE
When I lived in Genova I recorded White Dandelions song (which was also written in Genova in front of the sea, ah....) live with my violin player at the time, Hanako Tsushima, who can make you smile and cry from how how much soul she is expresses through playing her instrument. We did 3 takes and chose the best one. So what you see is unedited LIVE music recording and video take of our performance of White Dandelions! Thanks to everyone making this. 

SKYLINES IN SUNLIGHT - NEW VIDEO 

Although we never finished the video how we imagined it because the director's father left this Earth due to terminal cancer I decided to finally release this video of me playing the grand piano in a room full of light and surrounded by PHOTOS THAT REPRESENT PEOPLE'S DREAMS and ASPIRATIONS of what they want to become of have already become. They were hung on a fishing wire at a friends house and we had a pretty cool crue going on that day. AS FOR THE STORY LINE, I'm sure YOU'LL PICK IT UP IN THE TEXT OF THE LYRICS... :) Enjoy and keep your beautiful dreams close to your heart. 
 

Thanks everyone for a radical TOUR in US!! 

I want to give my thanks for all the musicians that played the 8 shows with me in the US. All my friends and fans for your generosity and your support! I couldn't have wished for a better tour! And here is one of the performances for you to watch: enjoy!
Hugs from Switzerland!
