Hova was born in 1979 in Gyumri, Armenia where he attended music school in 1985 at the age of 6. For better opportunities in life, Hova and his family moved to the states in 1991. Perusing his career as a musician, Hova started playing gigs when he was 14 year old, and by age 17 he was performing at concerts.
Hova was playing electric and acoustic guitars till he met Armen Tiran in 1998 who was a composer and a bass player. Tiran asked Hova " Have you tried playing bass?" He knew that Hova had more potential playing the bass rather than acoustic or electric guitar because of the hand and finger techniques used to play the guitar.
According to Armen Tiran, Hova also loved playing the bass line, the melody and the chords to entire songs with the guitar. From there, Hova became a passionate bass player and continues his journey of being a musician of perfection. Hova is a composer, arranger, a song writer and a poet classically trained by Hmayak Beazyan.
