the very beginning of his solo career in 1982, Canadian-born singer/guitarist
Aldo Nova immediately revealed himself as an indomitably powerful
artist whose intrinsic talent and pioneering spirit were definitely
not to be ignored. His critically acclaimed self-titled debut album
was entirely written, arranged, performed, produced and engineered
by himself, yielding the singles "Life Is Just A Fantasy"
and " Ball and Chain", ranking among BILLBOARD's top ten
just 10 weeks after its release (and remaining there for 12 weeks
more), and achieving both U.S.A. Double-Platinum and Canadian Double-Platinum
status. Moreover, it set a trend of its own as the first multi-instrumentalist
rock album, and was one of the first albums to be offered in a limited
edition on compact disc. The video for "Life Is Just A Fantasy"
was not only among the first videos to be featured on the MTV music
channel, but also one of the first rock videos that pioneered the
use of special effects.
an explosively auspicious beginning inevitably led to a wide-ranging
and multi-leveled expansion of his career as musician, vocalist,
composer, arranger and producer, and in addition to the release
of his albums "SUBJECT", "TWITCH" and "BLOOD
ON THE BRICKS", all of which went Gold, he participated in
an immense array of projects in both Canada and U.S., not the least
of which is his extensive involvement as co-producer, arranger and
musician with Jon Bon Jovi, and as composer, arranger and producer
with Celine Dion. His work as musician and composer is also found
on the soundtracks for the motion pictures "RUTHLESS PEOPLE"
("Don't You Want My Love"), Steven Spielberg's "THE
GOONIES" ("Good Enough"), as well as albums by Cyndi
Lauper, Michael Bolton, Lita Ford, Blue Oyster Cult and Patrick
Bruel, among others.
