“DAUGHTER OF THE HURRICANE”
Pinky’s blues is the follow-up to Sue foley’s award-winning album, The ice queen, (2018). Foley’s The new album is rough electric guitar play through the back roads of the Texas blues, with Foley’s signature paisley pink Fender Telecaster, “Pinky,” at the wheel. Foley sees her guitar, Pinky, as a living extension of who she is and this helps guide her through the exuberant and deep interpretations of everything she performs.
We just wanted to do a “blues guitar” album and present Pinky. I bought a brand new Pinky, off the shelf in 1988, and she has walked me through every album and tour for over thirty years. She still plays and sounds amazing. In fact, I think she sounds better than ever. We just have this link. It is magic! – Sue foley
Foley won the “Best Traditional Woman (Koko Taylor Award)” award at the 2020 Blues Music Awards in Memphis, was nominated for a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy), and she won the “Best Guitarist” award at the Toronto Maple Blues Awards. Over the past several years, Foley and his band have maintained a rigorous touring schedule throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Leaving Canada as a young player, Foley knew she had to go where music thrived. All of her years in Austin, including those where she left to learn new approaches to life, all came together on Pinky’s blues.
“It entered my soul when I was a teenager. I saw my first blues concert when I was 15 and I swear I was never the same. I was lucky because I got to play with so many legends before they passed away. It is this direct transmission that it is about. I have the kind of experience and education that you can’t get anymore. In a way, it is a great responsibility to carry the message of these giants. But more importantly, it’s about finding your own voice in this setting. In the blues, it takes time. The beauty of the blues, and something I’ve always loved about it, is that you get better as you get older.
