Born in Budapest, Peter Foldy spent his formative years in Sydney, Australia. After a family-move to Toronto, he began composing music and was soon signed to a record contract. His first single, “Bondi Junction” reached number one on the Canadian music charts and Peter went on to receive 2 Juno Award Nominations (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys). After a successful decade as a recording artist on labels such as EMI, Polydor and RCA, Peter began writing and selling screenplays and eventually got the opportunity to direct. His initial project, a short called “Jamie’s Secret” introduced a young Paul Rudd in his first on-film acting role.
Peter's feature film credits as a director include “MIDNIGHT WITNESS” starring Jan-Michael Vincent and Maxwell Caulfield, “TRYST” with Academy Award winner, Louise Fletcher, the HBO World Premier movie, “WIDOW’S KISS” starring Beverly D’Angelo, “SEEDS OF DOUBT” with Peter Coyote and “SILVER MAN” starring Eugene Levy, Joe Pantoliano and Daniel Baldwin.
An avid photographer, he has been taking pictures all his life. He particularly enjoys capturing candid shots of people, some ordinary, others world famous. He has had the good fortune to shoot candid photos of stars such as Bob Hope, Ronald Reagan, Audrey Hepburn, Dennis Hopper, Bette Davis and Paul McCartney among many others.
Peter is currently working on several new feature film projects as well as a Broadway musical.
His new CD, 'Nine Lives' has recently been released to very favorable reviews. It is available for purchase from this website as well as from Amazon and iTunes in most territories world-wide.
