XOVA BIO XOVA (pronounced ‘Cross-Over’) are the UK’s best Unsigned Pop/Reggae outfit currently rocking the circuit.

Masters of their vibrant and muscular sound. They fuse Ska, Pop, Reggae, dub, motown, blues and folk with protest, pain, and hope.

Their film called ‘The Sound of Birmingham’, features UB40, The Beat, Wonderstuff and many more. Previous single ‘Your To Blame’ saw XOVA collaborate with Dee Kelly from Benefit Street (C4 TV), featured in a double page spread in the Daily Star in 2014.

XOVA's New re-released latest Single EP called "Little Lion", is in aid of Crohns and Colitis UK Charity with proceeds going to the Charity, after singer Wayne’s sister was diagnosed with the disease.

They are now embarking on a UK 2014 Tour to promote the single, including a showcase at Brighton’s "The Great Escape Festival", and a spot on RCA Records "Ones To Watch 2014" showcase at Academy 2 in Birmingham.

They have an album called "Synchronise Your Leaders" coming out in the Summer 2014.

Birmingham’s XOVA – Roots Music From The Working Heart of Community
True working class heroes from multi racial and generational backgrounds, XOVA (pronounced ‘Cross-Over’) are the UK’s best Pop/Reggae outfit currently rocking the circuit. Masters of their vibrant and muscular sound, their vision nods the cap to their musical and social roots, whilst keeping a modern and current stance on urban socio-political unrest issues; and taking fire from affairs of the heart. They fuse Ska, Pop, Reggae, dub, motown, blues and folk with protest, pain – and hope.
XOVA hold a strong sense of community. Their film called ‘The Sound of Birmingham’, features UB40, The Beat, Wonderstuff and many more talking about the Birmingham music scene people and sense of humour.
Previous single ‘Your To Blame’ saw XOVA collaborate with Dee Kelly from Benefit Street (C4), featured in a double page spread in the Daily Star newspaper in 2014.
This is followed by an EP called ‘Little Lion’, which is their New re-released latest Single, in aid of Crohns and Colitis UK Charity with proceeds going to the Charity, after singer Wayne’s sister was diagnosed with the disease. They are no strangers to the hardships of life: Close friends have been killed in unwanted wars in Iraq, and drummer Skins’ son was mistakenly shot dead during the Birmingham gang wars. These hard experiences have left their mark – and the band are determined to use their music as a way for bringing some light to the dark.
Doing so has seen them support the likes of The Spin Doctors The Beat, The Selector and Ali Campbell (UB40), and perform at The Isle Of Wight Festival as ‘Best Unsigned Band In The UK’ in 2013. They are now embarking on a UK Tour to promote the single and EP, including a showcase at Brighton’s prestigious The Great Escape Festival. Expect some proper
shenanigans: previous tours have included stage invasions by leg-humping dwarves; and mistakenly stealing and breaking ancient arrows from members of the Sioux Reservation after forgetting drum sticks for a TV performance.
They have a new un-released album called "Synchronise Your Leaders" which they are hoping to release soon.
