Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo (Melbourne, Australia) are musicians and songwriters, better known by their stage name NERVO. After signing with Sony/ATV Music Publishing at 18 years of age, the twins pursued careers as songwriting partners, co-writing the Grammy Award-winning single, "When Love Takes Over", performed by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. This summer Nervo will be at Aoki’s PlayHouse in Pacha on July 11th.
They studied at Genazzano FCJ College in Kew. The twins began their careers as models. The twins were accepted into the Opera Australia Academy, but they decided to pursue a music career instead. A contract was signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and the duo subsequently embarked on a songwriting career. Initial recognition for the pair occurred following the single, "Negotiate with Love", written for British pop singer, Rachel Stevens. The duo went on to write for Kesha, Richard Grey, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Ashley Tisdale and the Pussycat Dolls. The group co-wrote Guetta and Rowland's number one dance hit, "When Love Takes Over" which went on to win a Grammy Award.
In March 2010, Nervo announced a worldwide recording deal with Virgin Records/EMI Music. The group also wrote Nicole Scherzinger's single "Try With Me". The single "You're Gonna Love Again" was leaked in 2011 and reached the #1 position on the Hype Machine chart.
