Villa*Nova turns rock 'n' roll upside down. Hailing from Columbia, SC, the band distills elements of funky pop and rock into a hypnotic hybrid. Villa*Nova prides itself on making music with solid grooves and soulful, dynamic lyrics provided by lead vocalist/guitarist/song writer BC Villa*Nova, fluid and funky bass lines by Bobby Dredd bombastic fantastic, rock solid drummer (and backing vocals) Young Sean, amazing harmony vocals and rhythm guitar by Brandon Hooker, and turntable wizadry and keyboards by DJ Able One.

Their infectious sound has earned them thousands of fans nationwide. Villa*Nova, currently independent, was previously signed to Universal Republic (now Republic) and recorded their 2012 debut "WTF the EP" in LA with super producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Daughtry, Hoobastank, Seether) under the band name Weaving The Fate. They have shared the stage with everyone from Korn, Shinedown, Evanescence, Slash, AWOLNATION, Staind, Chevelle, Filter, Crossfade, Dirty Heads, Nappy Roots, REHAB, and the list goes on.
They’ve been called contemporaries of break out bands such as AWOLNATION, Imagine Dragons, and Arctic Monkeys where heavy rebellion meets pop sensibilities.
