The follow up to Sue Foley’s acclaimed album, The Ice Queen is due to be released on Stony Plain / True North Records in Spring 2021.
Foley’s highly anticipated new album (currently untitled) was recorded live in the studio in San Marcos, TX and produced by Mike Flanigin (Jimmie Vaughan, Billy F Gibbons). It features Chris “Whipper” Layton (Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble) on drums and original Sue Foley Band bass
player, Jon Penner on bass. Foley’s new album is a raw, electric guitar driven romp through the backroads of Texas blues, with Foley’s signature pink paisley Fender Telecaster, “Pinky” at the wheel. With this project we find Foley returning to her roots as the band leader and guitar slinger in a dynamic blues power trio.
Sue Foley has been riding a wave of success since The Ice Queen (2018). She won “Best Traditional Female (Koko Taylor Award)” at the 2020 Blues Music Awards in Memphis, was nominated for a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy), and she took home the award for “Best Guitar Player” at the Toronto Maple Blues Awards.
For the last few years Foley and her band have kept a rigorous touring schedule across the US, Canada and Europe. Some highlights were appearances at The Beacon Theater (NYC), guesting with Jimmie Vaughan (opening for Eric Clapton) at Royal Albert Hall in London, Montreal Jazz Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest (w/ Buddy Guy), Utah Blues Fest, The Heights Theater (Houston), Moulin Blues (Holland), NPR’s Mountainstage (w/Bela Fleck), Doheny Blues Fest, and the Jungle Show in Austin, TX.
“I’ve had a lot of time to think about what the next chapter is,” says Foley. “After being home for so long, all I really want to do is turn up and play my guitar for as many folks as I can. I can’t wait to get out on the road.”
