Product Description

Her 10th CD, New Used Car only proves that this blues guitar woman is only picking up speed. Foley's trademark vocals and her renowned guitar playing skills highlight an upbeat and vibrant CD that not only showcases an artist with an incredible history but also one who continues to gain momentum as the wheels keep turning.

Like the titular automobile, guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Sue Foley is dependable, road-tested, and economical. Through sheer tenacity, the Canadian has become an experienced and respected veteran in the limited but fertile genre of female blues-guitar-slinging bandleaders. On her tenth album, Foley finds a cruising lane between her tougher early work and a slicker, more R&B-influenced sound. She sticks to her blues background while shifting gears to a moderately more commercially oriented soulful approach that should appeal to old fans and create some new ones. With an instantly recognizable voice that can be sweet one moment and biting the next, Foley shows that being fashionable and rootsy aren't mutually exclusive. She's as comfortable with a Stonesy "Beast of Burden"-styled ballad such as "Do It Again" as digging her wheels into the album's high-drama, torchy showpiece "Absolution." While not all of the material--eleven of these tracks are written or co-penned by Foley--is up to those standards, her malleable voice, tough yet tender spirit, and subtle but sure guitar find the guts in even the less stellar tunes. The evocative front cover shows a glamorous Foley staring down the listener with an expression of steely resolve. It's a similar mixture of grace and danger that fuels this album, where she hugs the curves of the blues while careening around the corners of rock and soul. --Hal Horowitz

Sue Foley is a criminally underrated blues singer/songwriter/guitarist. She has consistently been releasing great music for the last 15 years. She has an instantly recognizable (and sexy as hell) voice, and she is a remarkably gifted player. Anyone with an appreciation for the blues should check her out. She is equally adept at slow blues or fast, instrumental or vocal, acoustic or electric; all while retaining her signature sound. Here's hoping "Gman" will give her latest another spin, because it truly is one of her best, and no one should be discouraged from checking it out. Simply put, it is one of the five best albums of the year, regardless of genre.

I have most of Sue's early work and love it but this album is different- in a good way. Her guitar work is great as always, with more of a rock feel on some songs rather than straight up blues. There are hints of Sheryl Crow and even Tom Petty on this album. The one thing I love with Sue Foley is she won't allow herself to be stuck in one catagory like some other artists and be done with it. Like her new project "He Said She Said", she mixes blues, folk and rocks it out too. Good stuff!

I couldn't disagree with the first reviewer more. I have liked this album from the opening note. Its one of the very few albums where I can listen favorably to all the songs on the disc--though I have those I like better than others. On this album I can't tell which I like better: her guitar playing, her song-writing or her singing. Admittedly her singing is her weakest point, but she knows her limitations and it works fine for her songs. I have found her lyrics, on this and her other albums, how shall I put it--interesting. Her songs don't just tell a story, but convey a point of view, especially regarding the battle of the sexes. The images she conveys often evince a knowing nod or a grin of agreement. I especially like the fact that she doesn't dumb-down her songs inorder to get her point across. I found her songwriting quite adult, and about adult themes--these songs aren't meant for teeny-boppers or the shallow of heart. Maybe we have becomne so used to having the lyrics spoon-fed that we have lost our ability to listen-up. I save my critique of her guitar-playing for last, as it is undeniably her best quality. She is the best female guitar player I have ever heard, and she is definielty in the top tier, male or female. Even after a year of heavy play some of her riffs are still exquisitely jaw-dropping experiences. This girl can rock, and it has nothing to do with volume--though I do tend to turn her up when she comes on. The fact is you will not hear a better combination of singing, song-writing or guitar-playing than Sue Foley, male or female. I can readily think of persons better at two-out-of-three, but not all three. What am I currently listening too besides Ms. Foley?Read more ›
