Joey Cee

CEO, Chief Consultant

There are very few people in the Canadian music business today that can honestly claim
they have directly experienced just about every facet of the business in one capacity or
another. Joey Cee has done it, seen it and worked most of it.
From the time the Canadian music industry was at its mere infancy to the powerhouse it
is today, Joey Cee has played an active role in its development. While most of his
colleagues have since retired, Joey is still going strong with exciting projects and
developments on his current agenda.

Through Nightflite Music + Entertainment, a company which he founded in the early
80’s as Nightflite Records, he has come on board as the Chief Consultant, now ready to
pass on his experiences as a mentor and musiciatrist to those who are looking to pursue a
career in the “music business” today. Over the decades Joey has been heralded as a “hit
maker” to a “talent scout” and whose keen sense of discovering artists and music have
been well documented. His tenure as a radio station music director, weekly music
columnist for major newspapers, a weekly host on a national radio program, a publisher
of several major music industry magazines, concert programs and Canada’s first and only
weekly music industry newspaper earned him a following, even to this day, by most
people in the music industry.

As the Chief Consultant at Nightflite, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and
experiences that new aspiring talents can benefit from in a big way at the start of their
music career journey. Having been there and done that, literally, Joey has personally
lined up other qualified music industry specialists who will help him help others to
navigate the music industry “realistically” and with the least amount of stress and
expense.

Having done it all is an understatement. Over the past 50 plus years, he has tackled and
succeeded in many areas of the music industry, and along the way was a trendsetter in
many areas. Included in these accomplishments, in addition to those aforementioned
above, are stints as a mobile deejay, recording artist, songwriter, music publisher, record
label owner, concert producer and promoter, record producer, music journalist, concert
emcee, radio broadcaster, publicist, music writer, music consultant, music project
developer, graphic artist, headline wordsmith, photographer and poet.
He has worked with many of the world’s greatest and most influential recording artists
and been involved in a number of internationally known music projects in various
capacities. A complete list of accomplishments and a career chronology can be found at

Peter Foldy

Consultant

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 music executive heard some of his demos, Foldy was quickly signed to the indie label, Kanata Records. His first recording, “BONDI JUNCTION” soon reached number one on RPM’s Adult Contemporary Chart, received two Juno Award nominations. Bondi Junction was a legitimate pop hit across Canada. An album entitled “Peter Foldy” soon followed.

Before long, Foldy was lured to Capitol/EMI Canada, and the singles, “ROXANNE” and “JULIE-ANN” also climbed to Top 10 status on charts across Canada and the US. “Roxanne” was a hit pick in US industry magazines, Cashbox and Billboard.

When his Capitol deal ended three years later, Foldy began spending time in Los Angeles where a meeting with Tina Turner’s manger, Roger Davies, led to a deal on RCA’s brand new Free Flight label. Foldy continued his musical momentum on Free Flight with the singles, “LOVE CITY”, and “SCHOOL OF LOVE”, songs he both wrote and for the first time, co-produced.

A compilation of Foldy’s music entitled “PETER FOLDY/BONDI JUNCTION AND OTHER HITS” is currently available through Pacemaker Entertainment, distributed by EMI Canada. The CD contains some never released tracks as well as a new Christmas song Foldy wrote especially for this release.
