Sue Foley Interview – Everyone Loves Guitar #239

She has toured and shared the stage with blues icons BB King, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Jimmy Rogers, Albert Collins, Van Morrison, Nina Simone, Ronnie Earl, Roy Buchanan, Charlie Sexton and more. She’s toured the world and won more Maple Blues Awards (17) than any other artist – ever…

The youngest of 5 children and originally from Canada, Sue started her professional career at 16… and by 21 she was living in Austin, TX and playing as part of the house band for Antone’s. Shortly after that she recorded her first album, also on Antone’s record label. Sue talks about her new album, The Ice Queen… relationships… why playing a slow blues is FAR more difficult than most people think… weed-smoking hippies… the biggest obstacle she’s had to overcome in this business… the most critical and costly mistake most artists make (and how to fix it)… her 1987 Fender Telecaster that she’s the original owner of, and more. This is a GREAT conversation with a really candid person and incredibly soulful blues player…
