In 1990, she released her first recording, Heather Frith, an EP; she had not yet changed her name. She changed her name a year later, in an effort to create a name with more buzz.

The new name debuted in 1993 with her second EP Spirit in You and her first full album Glow Stars. Nova release her first live album Blow the same year, which she supported by a tour of Europe.

In 2002, she self-published The Sorrowjoy, a 72-page book of her poetry and drawings. In 2006 she released an album of the same name which featured Nova reading the poems from her book set to ambient music.
