Sue Foley's audacious, smoking licks satisfy on her newest CD, Baltimore Skyline. I thought her music pulsates the blues with a provocative hint of Bob Dylan and Sheryl Crow. Her accomplished, unique talent also resonates an "I ain't going to take no shit" kind of blues creation.
Sue Foley is not an unfamiliar name in the States and Canada. She has been entertaining the globe for quite some time, and has been recognized as a very influential woman in the industry of rhythm and blues. Some say she has made as much of a musical contribution as Bonnie Raitt, and Albert Collins, and her adept strum makes her a rarity among blues women.
Sue Foley is a native of Ottawa, Canada, where she is recognized as Canada's Queen of the blues guitar. Foley's first two albums were, Young Girl Blues, and Without a Warning, produced by Antone's Records. This accomplished female blues musician has followed those albums with, Big City Blues, Walk in the Sun, and Ten Days In November. She is now ready for her fans to hear her newest release, "Baltimore Skyline," which is full of more of her autocratic melodies and impetuous licks.
If you're a blues fan who likes a sassy hint of Dylan and Crow, this CD is one to check out. You can locate her CD, Baltimore Skyline, at Shanachie Records web site, http://www.shanachie.com/.
