Lucia Fodde was born in Sardinia, and from a young age, she had an unrestrained passion for music, taking piano lessons and participating in the church choir, showcasing her extraordinary ability to handle time and melody. She was significantly influencedby her jazz-loving father's vinyl record collection.
After a stint as a vocalist in the pop scene, Lucia whole heartedly embraced jazz.

Luigi da Palestrina in Cagliari, earning a diploma in "Vocal Jazz."
Overthe years, Lucia has participated in masterclasses with luminaries such as Sheila Jordan and Rachel Gould, to name a few.
After a careful exploration of her musical journey, Lucia Fodde decided to move to Berlin in 2013, driven by a personal and artistic need fornew stimuli. This relocation aimed to optimize her skills as asinger-songwriter and vocalist. In Berlin, she promptly became partof the local jazz scene, performing not only in the best jazz clubs in Berlin but also throughout Germany and internationally.

In 2012, Lucia Fodde released her debut album, "Just One Of ThoseThings," paying tribute to Cole Porter with the Lov'n Jazz Quartet of Cagliari (Paolo Carrus on piano, Massimo Tore on bass, Roberto Migoni on drums).

Recorded at Greve Studio in Berlin, the album featured Davide Incorvaia (piano/synth), Giuseppe Bottiglieri (bass), Jesus Vega (drums), and Regis Molina (sax). "Freedom" is an exciting journey through Lucia's original compositions and some jazz standards, seamlessly weaving together swing, smooth jazz, ballads and electronic elements with the virtuosity that characterizes Fodde's style.
In 2020, she released two new singles: "Colors," her first collaboration with Loomis Connell Green (guitar, arrangements) and Carmelo Leotta (bass), and "Inútil Paisagem," featuring Davide Incorvaia (piano synth).

"After experiencing this outstanding EP, we sense that we've ventured into a realm of intimacy and personal expression. Here, it's not jazz guiding the inspiration, but rather the complete opposite: Lucia seems to have discovered a language through which she can naturally and authentically convey her artistry."

"Fodde has become a skilled songwriter. In her third album, she blends fivecatchy originals with the classic 'No One Knows Me But You,' which stands out.

- She revitalizes 'That Old Feeling' more expressively than Chet Baker."

- Jazz Journal

"Her virtuosity is respectful of the talented collaborators around her, all capable of musically underlining even a well-written piece, madeup of languid moments of reflection mixed with others where Berlin'shumidity penetrates even the caliente soul. A great display of vocal technique and virtuosity in this album with compositions that blend beautiful jazz and traditional Brazilian, offering incredible emotions in music."
