Hello friends! My guest for episode 701 is the incredibly soulful Sue Foley! Sue has just released her first solo album in a decade, The Ice Queen and it is stunning. The album was produced by Mike Flanigin and features special guests like Jimmie Vaughan, Charlie Sexton, Billy Gibbons and many more. She just started a European tour and will be there through most of June when she returns to the US and her home country of Canada. Go to for tour dates, music and more! We have a great conversation about how she knew she was going to be a musician from 5 years old, discovering the blues at 15 through James Cotton, she started playing professionally at 16, being mentored by Clifford Antone, making The Ice Queen and much much more! I had a great time getting to know Sue. I'm sure you will too.  Plus, Karyn Scott from Care2Rock stops by to tell us about Care2Rock and their innovative virtual music lesson program and how they are able to help children in care. Go to to get involved. Let's get down!

hello friends! i hope you're all well. i'm doing better today than i was yesterday when i recorded the intro for this episode. i had some dental work done yesterday and had some pain in my jaw and when i recorded the intro for this episode, i was on vicodin. i thought it would be fun to do an "altered" intro. other than that, things are good here. i have totally forgotten that today kicks-off the moontower comedy festival here in austin. i got a badge a while back and i'm excited to go tonight and tomorrow. i haven't really gone through the line-up to plan my route yet. i guess i'll do that after practice today. i'll let you know how it goes on friday. also, if you live in san antonio, skyrocket will be at the aztec theater this friday, april 25th. come out and say hi!episode 268 is the last of the sxsw 2014 multi-interview shows. i know. i'm kinda sad to see them go too. on this episode i sit down and talk to DTCV (pronounced detective) from the joshua tree desert just hours before they leave austin to head out on a 5-week tour. i talk to lo-fi genius, daniel hunter, about his band, analog rebellion from dallas. i talk to victory from los angeles about their brand of sun-bleached garage rock. last, but certainly not least, i talk to chappo from brooklyn, ny who had just finished a long u.s. tour at a crazy music festival. at the end of the chappo interview, they ask us to leave the hilton. good way to end it. i love all of these bands and i'm sure you will too. enjoy!ciao! - jg
