Sue Foley is a virtual triple threat as a lead guitarist, singer and songwriter. Foley spent her early childhood in Canada, mesmerized by her father’s guitar and started her professional career at sixteen. By twenty-one, she was living in Austin, TX and recording for Antone’s—the esteemed blues label and historic nightclub that helped launch the career of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

She's currently nominated for "Traditional Blues Female Artist (Koko Taylor Award)” at the 2023 Blues Music Awards in Memphis TN -- an award she won in 2022 and 2020. Foley was also recently honored with “Guitarist of the Year” and “Blues Act of the Year” at the at the 2023 Austin Music Awards, and “Guitarist of the Year” at the 2023 Maple Blues Awards. Her latest album, PINKY’S BLUES took home “Best Traditional Blues Album” at the 2022 Blues Music Awards.

Foley has toured steadily with her band, working and sharing the stage with greats such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan and Billy F Gibbons. She’s is the only female member of the famed “Jungle Show” which features Gibbons, Vaughan, B3 virtuoso Mike Flanigin and Chris ‘Whipper’ Layton. Her live shows are high energy, guitar driven and steeped in the Texas blues sound she was schooled in.
