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 aspir-ing, 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 nomina-tions at the Blues Music Awards from The Blues Foundation.
The Ice Queen (Mar 2 2018) was recorded in San Marcos, Texas. The album represents Foley's full circle journey - her return to the roots of her career in Austin and her re-connection with many old friends. Joining Sue Foley as special guests is a trio of leg-endary Texas guitarslingers - Jimmie Vaughan, Z.Z.Top's Billy F Gibbons and Charlie Sexton - as well as a host of other Lone Star State all-stars.
A longtime New Haven scene guitarist, songwriter & recording artist, Bob Crelin steps up to the mic with his own brand of modern rock. Bob’s unique rhythmic style and poetic sense combine with big melodies and wry social commentary in songs that evoke shades of The Animals, Tom Petty & Frank Zappa. Bob Crelin's former band, Catwalk (1986-’92) spent time on the reporting playlists of major market rock radio, and college radio stations, and he has been featured in industry articles in Billboard magazine and the New York Times.
