At the tender age of 21 Sue Foley was irrevocably drawn to the bustling Blues scene in Austin, Texas. The Blues landscape in Austin was the place to be for this up-and-coming Blues devotee. A city overflowing with talent that included the likes of Jimmie Vaughan and his Fabulous Thunderbirds and, of course, Foley’s biggest influence, Albert King. Fast forward two years and Foley released her inaugural album entitled “Young Girl Blues.”
Presently, we can enjoy Sue Foley’s 16th album release entitled “Pinky’s Blues.” I’ve been listening to this exceptional CD for the last week and the feedback I’ve received from friends who have listened to it has been nothing less than overwhelmingly positive.
If you love the Blues or just music in general, this CD will grab you and won’t let go. Ottawa born Foley’s love of music is apparent throughout this brisk 12 track foray into the blues. Included here are 9 of Foley’s favorite covers alongside 3 of her own compositions. Jimmie Vaughan sits in on guitar on the album’s 6th track, “Hurricane Girl.”
Foley personifies the Blues which should come as no surprise to anyone since she has spent most of her life on the road touring or in the studio.
Considered to be among the world’s greatest Blues guitarists; Foley has worked with some amazing musicians including Buddy Guy, Lucinda Williams, the dearly departed King of The Blues” BB King and Tom Petty.
Sue Foley will be in Europe next week for a couple of concerts in Switzerland and then continuing her tour into the new year with only one confirmed Canadian concert booked in Belleville, Ontario on April 14, 2022, at the Empire Theatre.
Don’t miss Sue Foley”s “Pinky’s Blues”, a CD that should reside in everyone’s music collection.
Release date: October 22nd, 2021
