Sue Foley is a multi-award-winning musician and one of the finest blues and roots artists working today. She’s a triple-threat as a lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. Foley has a long history of defying convention, and being a positive role model for aspiring, young female musicians.
She began her recording career in Austin, TX with Antone’s, the esteemed blues label and historic nightclub that helped launch the career of Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. In 2001, she won the prestigious Juno Award (Canadian equivalent of the Grammy) and also holds the record for the most Maple Blues Awards in Canada and has earned three Trophees de Blues de France. She has also garnered several nominations at the Blues Music Awards from The Blues Foundation.
Since its release, her album “The Ice Queen” was nominated for a Juno Award, Two Blues Music Awards and Six Maple Blues Awards. In May she won her first Blues Music Award for Traditional Blues Female Artist (Koko Taylor Award).
