Aldo Nova (born Aldo Caporuscio 13 November 1956) is a Canadian guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist and producer from Montreal, Quebec. He released an album Aldo Nova in 1982 which had a two hit singles with "Fantasy" and "Foolin' Yourself".
He worked with Jon Bon Jovi in the late 1980s with the album "Blood on the Bricks", becoming the first album from the newly formed JAMBCO records, Blood on the Bricks was released to moderate acceptance in 1990, followed by a tour. Unfortunately this was also the end of the hair band era. Also during this time, Aldo produced some early Céline Dion albums. He helped write and produce parts of Chantal Condor's 1989 album Chantal. Aldo Nova also worked with such diverse artists such as Blue Öyster Cult, Michael Bolton, and Lita Ford.
Aldo Nova was a relatively late bloomer musically, not
learning how to play the instrument until he was 15. However, inspired by the playing of Jimi Hendrix and with a keen interest in jazz, Nova worked obsessively to master the instrument (along with keyboards) and became a hometown hero in the local clubs.
