In Omaha, Nebraska, in the early aughts being in a band did not require talent or skill or opportunity. Anyone could do it. Everyone should do it. All that it required was time and inspiration. With an early love of poetry and music, Neva Dinova evolved from a great reason to laugh and drink and rock in mom’s basement into a vehicle for storied perspectives that reflect the human condition. An art project. It’s too dumb for some, it’s too dramatic for others, but for those in-between, it speaks to the human conditions of love, longing, sadness, and anger. And an occasional joke thrown in with some reflective disrespect. Over time it’s become clear– those that love this band do so for life. And even through long periods of radio silence, they continue to reach out with love and support, hoping for another installation in their musical journey, a reflection of their own hearts.
