Canadian award-winning blues guitarist and singer, Sue Foley is one of the finest blues and roots artist working today. She released fifteen albums since her debut with “Young Girl Blues” in 1992.
In May 2020, Sue won her first Blues Music Award in Memphis, in the Traditional Blues Female Artist category – KoKo Taylor Award, she was nominated for a Juno Award and awarded the Best Guitar Player at the Toronto Maple Blues Awards.
Her upcoming new album set for release on October 22nd titled “Pinky’s Blues” features several of Sue’s originals, as well as songs from some of her favourite blues and roots artists.
Sue left Canada as a young player and knew she had to go where the music thrived. All her years in Austin, and including those when she left to learn new approaches to life, have all come together on “Pinky’s Blues”.
“The fact that I have ended up back in Austin just seems right," Sue Foley says. My home is Canada and I definitely identify as a Canadian. But I had a yearning for this music and I can't even put my finger on why or how. It got in my soul when I was a teenager. I guess I was open and I got imprinted by the sound and the force of blues music.”
