Sue Foley

This highly touted vocalist/guitarist originally hails from Ottawa, Canada, although her home base shifted to Austin, TX, when she signed with Antone's Records and cut her debut set, Young Girl Blues, in 1992 (an encore, Without a Warning, quickly followed). Foley's wicked lead guitar makes her a rarity among blueswomen.

When she was a child in Ottawa, Foley listened to rock & roll and blues-rock groups like the Rolling Stones. Although these bands sowed the seeds of her affection for the blues, her love for the music didn't blossom until she witnessed James Cotton in concert when she was 15 years old. Cotton inspired Foley to pick up the electric guitar. During her late teens and early twenties, she jammed with local Ottawa bar bands. She didn't form her own group until she moved to Vancouver in the mid-'80s.

Foley sent a demo tape of herself to Antone's Records in 1990. Impressed, the label arranged an audition for the guitarist. Sue moved to Austin and soon signed a recording contract with Antone's. In 1992, her debut album, Young Girl Blues, was released. It was acclaimed by a number of blues publications. Two years later she released her second album, Without a Warning. It was followed by Big City Blues in 1995. Subsequent efforts include 1996's A Walk in the Sun, 1998's Ten Days in November, and 2000's Love Comin' Down and Back to the Blues. Where the Action Is appeared in 2002 on Shanachie Records. Foley then switched to Ruf Records for her next two albums, 2004's Change and 2006's New Used Car. In 2007 Foley released Time Bomb, a collaborative effort with fellow Ruf labelmates Deborah Coleman and Roxanne Potvin. ~ Bill Dahl & Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

She's neither annoying nor Sheryl Crow - she's authentic blues. Not everyone understands the blues.

Sue Foley is one of my favorite guitarists and singers. I always come back to her works. To compare her to Sheryl Crow(like someone did in this comment section) is unthinkable. Sue is Sue is Sue. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would love to be like *her*... but she is definitely *not like* those other vocalists and players meandering through their dream-worlds today.

I got my first Sue Foley CD in the early-90's. It was "Young Girl Blues", released in 1992. Too bad I didn't get it right when it came out, but I didn't know. No one told me. I found out by chance, just like you may be doing today. I saw her play Houston in the early-90's. What a rockin' show! As soon as I could after that, I purchased each CD as it came out: "Without a Warning", "Walk in the Sun", "Big City Blues", "Love Comin' Down". Cont.: (below via scroll)

My favorite of the above are "Love Comin' Down" & "Where the Action Is". Let it be known, her other CD's are also phenominal. You don't think a girl can play guitar? Then you haven't heard "Mediterrane a n Breakfast". You seriously need to listen to this lady play. Deep, hard, and light - sounds a bit too good to be true. Well, she's been from Canada to Austin and I guess back again, as well as performing European tours.

So, take note: she's willing and able to turn your impressions of boring guitar playing into a mesmerized trance-like state of... "Whoa. That's awesome!". She's a staple to my CD collection. And since I've been weeding my collection out... Well, she did NOT make the weed list. Continued: (below via scroll)

I have bought her albums as gifts for those who haven't been blessed by her gritty voice and smooth guitar textures. I've even bought second copies for myself, just in case I lost one. Yes, my friends. She's a keeper! :)

End Commentary. :)
