Excellent show! A very talented musician with a varied repertoire of styles and songs and a very down to earth stage presence. I hadn’t heard of Sue before this show. Now that I’ve seen her, I’ll definitely try to catch her live again sometime

This was a great show! Sue and her band covered all the bases including some solo acoustic songs. Sue Foley is extremely versatile and it shows in the range of music performed. Her solos on guitar screamed blues, her vocals were great, and the evening just sailed by. The bass player and drummer were major contributors to the great sound. And Nolan Hubbard was a great opening act! It was an evening very well spent!

Fantastic! Was able to sit in the front row & Sue was not even on a raised stage. Was mesmerized by her finger work on her guitars. I've never had the pleasure of watching a musician play a guitar so up close. I am not the least bit musically inclined, so it was a real joy to be able to watch a master at work. A very intimate stage & theatre setting. It was like having Sue & her band perform in someone's home. I especially liked Sue's stories & songs on her acoustic guitar when it was just her voice & the guitar notes. The only dislike I have of "modern" music is how loud the instruments are played. I understand that the amplified music is powerful, but for such a small venue, I think it would have worked just as well at half the sound volume. Especially when Sue sings her songs ... I can never make out her words over the music. If it's just the incredible string of notes & drum beats & guitar strums that she & her band put together seamlessly, the higher volume is fine. But when it comes to song parts, I'd love to hear more of Sue's voice & words & less of the instruments at full volume. But I just turned 65, so what can I say? I'm an old, curmudgeonly senior citizen now!! LOL I've only seen Sue perform once before and that was several years ago in a local pub in Red Deer & she was amazing then & still remains a truly gifted female guitarist, singer, song-writer & bluesy gal!! A true professional artist! I do not envy her travels on the road, though. That cannot be a lot of fun ... flying here, flying there, sitting in airports & hotel rooms & being away from her home in Austin. But I guess that is how musicians make their way in the world & pay the bills & become famous, so I wish her continued success. If her tours do not take her away from home for too long at a time, I suppose it can be a bit exciting. And she obviously loves her guitar, her music & her fans to allow her to continue to be creative & entertaining. Loved the show, love Sue!

About Sue Foley

Sue Foley is a multi-award-winning musician and of the one of the finest blues and roots artists working today. She is a veritable triple-threat of musical talent as a guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. As with many blues women of the past, Foley has a long history of defying convention, and being a positive role model for aspiring, young female musicians.

The Canadian has been working professionally since the age of 16, and by the age of 21, Foley had relocated to Austin, TX and began recording for Antone’s—the esteemed blues label and historic nightclub that helped launch the career of Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. In the two decades that have followed, Sue Foley has been busy touring and recording steadily, all while toting her signature pink paisley Fender Telecaster. In 2001, she won the prestigious Juno Award (Canadian equivalent of the Grammy) and also holds the record for the most Maple Blues Awards and has earned three Trophees de Blues de France. She has also garnered several nominations at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, TN.

With 11 recordings under her own name, an instructional DVD and book, as well as various compilations and projects, Foley is set to release her new album, The Ice Queen (March 2, 2018) on Stony Plain Records. “I’m extremely excited to be working with Holger Petersen and Stony Plain Records. Holger is one of the most knowledgeable “real music” people in the business”, says Foley. “Stony Plain is known to put out great music and I know The Ice Queen has found her home.”

Recorded throughout 2017, The Ice Queen represents Foley’s full circle journey – her return to the roots of her career in Austin with producer Mike Flanigin. The album was recorded with her long-time friends and collaborators Jimmie Vaughan and Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top) as well Chris ‘Whipper’ Layton from Double Trouble, Charlie Sexton, and members of the Tedeschi Trucks and Gary Clark Jr bands.

“When I was a teenager I idolized Jimmie Vaughan and Billy F Gibbons,” Foley says. “They're both legends now so this feels like an historical event (at least it does for me). And I grew up sitting at the feet of players like George ‘Big Beat’ Rains, Derek O'Brien and The Texas Horns. I spent many nights watching Charlie Sexton and the Arc Angels with Chris Layton. I learned and grew more musically in my years in Austin than at any point in my life. The fact that all these mega talented musicians have graced my album is beyond anything I hoped for. I am still pinching myself.”

A flood of inspiration and themes can be found on each of the tracks – ranging from lost love, anguish, and struggle to release, forgiveness and rebirth. Mostly recorded live-off-the-floor, Foley’s emotional vocal delivery, conviction, accessible yet inspired lyrics and intrepid guitar playing are all laid out, bare and raw for the songs to reveal.

Opening with the radio friendly and funky “Come to Me”, The Ice Queen also features upbeat and rollicking tracks “Run”, “The Lucky ones” (a duet with Jimmie Vaughan) and “Gaslight”. There are several bluesy and soulful tracks including “81”, “The Ice Queen”, “Fool's Gold” (featuring Billy F Gibbons on vocals and harmonica)”, “If I Have Forsaken You”, and a cheeky, guitar-heavy cover of Bessie Smith’s “Send Me To The ‘Lectric Chair”. Foley also provides some more mellow and unexpected songs on The Ice Queen with the jazzy “Death of a Dream”, the flamenco-blues hybrid “The Dance” and a beautiful cover of the Carter Family’s “Cannonball Blues”.

The Ice Queen represents Sue Foley’s indefatigable commitment to her craft, and her transparency with the journey that birthed her, further proving that
you can’t keep a good blueswoman down, particularly when she is The Ice Queen.
