Francesco “Foggy” Pintaudi is a musician and producer living in Lisbon. Originally from Palermo, Sicily, he started his first author project, HANK!, and began playing with musician Nicolò Carnesi.
After years of recording and touring in Italy, he moves to Berlin, where he finds a different and intriguing musical landscape. After two years of introspection and absorbing the city life, he moves to Portugal.
In Lisbon he begins a new chapter in his artistic life. He creates the WATTAFOG project, which marks the beginning of a phase of experimentation with new electronic and synthetic sonorities. As a result of this experimentation the FOGGY project was born. Within a few months he produces and records four singles, Vermelho, Never Give Up, My Day and To Welcome the Sadness. The release of these singles brings a stream of concerts all over the country, highlighting his participation in the final of the Termómetro festival, and his songs are heard on the radio stations – SBSR Radio, Observador Radio, Nova Radio, Antena 3.
In 2020, he launches the project No Escurinho, with musician and author Daniele Pistone. The video clip, released with Glam Magazine and Público newspaper, resulted from an appeal by the musician to artists and friends to contribute with videos recorded during lockdown.
Foggy‘s music is a continuous search for sounds and atmospheres inspired by Northern European electronic music and rhythms that take us to a world apparently without cultural and artistic barriers. The artist’s repertoire mixes several languages, including Italian, English, Portuguese, French, Spanish, Greek etc., and voices, due and thanks to the collaboration of different performers and authors, who contribute their own originality to the project. With a light melancholy, revealing in part of his being, Francesco “FOGGY” Pintaudi, invites our ears to the simple beauty of things and does so through a clear and simple language, which floats sweetly between the intriguing notes of his music.
