‘The Ice Queen’ – Sue Foley


Sue Foley hasn’t released a solo album since 2006’s New Used Car, so the 2018 appearance of The Ice Queen is something of an event.

The Ice Queen offers a welcome reminder of how fully formed her voice is as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Firmly rooted in traditional Texas blues, Foley writes winding riffs that skirt the edge of familiar. All 12 songs showcase the full range of Foley’s talent as well as the deep feeling flowing through her music, which is more than enough to make The Ice Queen something special.
