Francesco Lo Giudice (Olmo) was born in Bologna and grew up in London, Rome and East Sussex. After graduating he moved out to Berlin and has been based there since.
His musical style ranges from electronic production to acoustic songwriting, with every new project bringing a new found style and flavour to his creative writing.
After the release of his debut EP “Roots” Olmo continued to pursue personal and creative growth working with various fellow artists in Berlin, releasing with Alice Phoebe Lou, producing with Acid Pauli, going on extensive tours supporting Jesper Munk or L.A. Salami, performing at TEDx Berlin and in 2020 releasing a full length album with his childhood friend Frank Dillane (a.k.a. Mathilda/Imaginary Friends).
This year Olmo took to writing, recording and producing new songs at his studio in Berlin, a room in a community art space (Artistania) where Fran often worked hosting live music, art exhibitions and other events. There, together with fellow musicians, Fran recorded his biggest solo body of work to date, a new LP aptly named “The Trunk”.
The work consolidates his craft as a meticulous producer and careful songwriter, confronting pressing social issues of our time, exploring mental health, the male ego as well as the eternal mystery of love (or lack thereof).
The album is mixed by Digby Smith and mastered by Stuart Hawkes and is being released on the 10th of June 2022 in partnership with Motor Music and the invaluable support of Initiative Musik.
