"...an absolute gem. ...a rich collection of acoustic pop-rock tracks. ...mesmerizing, invoking an intoxicating blend of nostalgia, romanticism and vulnerability we all recognise in our bedroom mirrors. Something truly special."
- Rip It Up


"...it would be worthwhile to discover gems like Whispering Clouds."
Michael Smith - Drum Media


"Coming out of Sydney, Australia, this pop rock group is not a band to be taken lightly. Much like Coldplay's 'Parachutes', this first album is full of songs that are sure to become classics... Their music is very similar to that of Coldplay's with sweeping vocals, long ballads, and syncopated rhythms... 'Gypsy Girl' and 'Blue Track' are both incredible tracks and the world will be astounded when they are unleashed. Australia is known for bringing the world some amazing talents. The Velvet Fog is definitely one of these bands and their debut album is sure to act as a springboard to launching an excellent career" - This Is Modern.Net


“Santoni is also a master of the ethereal stacked harmony and uses
it to great effect ….Wrapped in Scenes From a Rooftop, a breaking heart never sounded so sweet”
Michael Smith - Drum Media

Bio

Sydney Troubadour Edoardo Santoni has been one to keep an eye on for some time on the Australian music scene, whose now getting set to release his debut solo album in 2010.

Over the years, writing, performing and recording Edoardo has accumulated many accolades from his audience and industry alike. He has drawn all these and a deepening life experience, especially changed by the loss of his Father, to produce an album of songs that are bound to launch him even further into the spotlight.

He’s also the former front man and brainchild of the critically acclaimed ‘The Velvet Fog’ who burst onto the scene in 2006 with their gorgeous debut ‘Scenes From A Rooftop’ (MGM). Collectively as both a soloist and with his band has seen him perform and tour extensively sharing line-ups with the likes of Augie March, The Beautiful Girls, Blue King Brown, Abby Dobson (Leonardo’s Bride), Wes Carr, Damien Leith, Matt Corby, Carla Werner, Elana Stone & more.

Most notably his songs from the former mentioned band ‘Whispering Clouds’ and ‘Blue Track’ had extensive national airplay on JJJ leading to a feature artist profile on JJJ’s ‘Unearthed’. ‘Blue Track’ also landed him a nomination in the 2006 Music Oz Awards.

Drawing on his roots studying Jazz and Soul at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music he has assembled a line up of some this countries finest musicians including his long-standing friend and collaborator Simon Rudston-Brown (Missy Higgins, Wes Carr, Gin Wigmore, The Falls), James Haselwood (Alex Lloyd, Mia Dyson), Jared Underwood (Coda).

With music in his blood coming from his late father a musician, Eddie Santos (supported Sammy Davis Jnr in his prime) and brother Carlo Santone from the band 'Blue King Brown', his music has an underlying naturalness and authenticity.

Drawing inspiration from both classic and contemporary songwriters and bands his new sound has been described as soulful, heartfelt and hopeful, seamlessly weaving folk, country, soul & rock into a unique take on Acoustic Pop.

Whatever your take on his music it’s clear that this talented, sincere and honest artist has set the stage for a stunning solo debut release.
