POP: 70's Pop, EASY LISTENING: Vocal Pop
PETER FOLDY was born in Hungary and raised in Sydney, Australia where he was influenced toward a career in music after forging a friendship with three brothers who would later find international success as the BEE GEES.
After a family move to Toronto, Foldy enrolled in film school but supported himself by playing in rock bands.
When a young music executive heard some of his demos, Foldy was quickly signed to a small, indie label, Kanata Records. His first recording, âBONDI JUNCTIONâ quickly reached number one on RPM's Adult Contemporary Chart, received two Juno Award nominations and was a legitimate pop hit across Canada. An album entitled âPeter Foldyâ soon followed.
Before long Foldy was lured to Capitol/EMI Canada, and the records, âROXANNEâ and âJULIE-ANNâ also climbed to Top 10 status on charts across Canada and the US.
When his Capitol deal ended three years later, Foldy moved to Los Angeles where a chance meeting with Tina Turnerâs manger, led to a deal on RCA's brand new Free Flight label. Foldy continued his musical momentum with âLOVE CITYâ, and âSCHOOL OF LOVEâ, songs he both wrote and for the first time, co-produced.
When Free Flight abruptly shut it's doors, Foldy decided to turn his attention back to film production, selling a screenplay, HOT MOVES, which became a considerable theatrical and video hit in the mid eighties. Many say the story-line later influenced the film "American Pie".
More screenplays followed and in the early nineties Foldy began directing.
His feature film credits as director include âMIDNIGHT WITNESSâ starring Jan-Michael Vincent and Maxwell Caulfield, âTRYSTâ with Barbara Carrera and Academy Award winner, Louise Fletcher, âWIDOW'S KISSâ with former Foldy background singer, Beverly D'Angelo and âSEEDS OF DOUBTâ with Peter Coyote.
His recent project, âSILVER MAN" stars Eugene Levy, Joe Pantoliano and Daniel Baldwin. It is was the winner of numerous awards including Best Film and Best Director at Planet Indie in Toronto and the Jury Prize for Best Feature at the Tambay Film Festival in Tampa Bay, Florida.
This compilation of Foldyâs music contains some never released tracks as well as a new Christmas song Foldy wrote especially for this release. Also included is information on where each track was recorded as well as photos from Foldy's personal collection.
