Time Bomb


Two years ago, Canadian blues artist Sue Foley put together a

two-CD compilation for Ruf Records called Blues Guitar Women. The album

featured over two dozen female artists playing both traditional and contemporary

blues. The third edition of the popular BluesCaravan tour represents a logical

next step: This carefully chosen trio of performers reflects the diversity and

dedication of a growing generation of female blues players. Fresh from the

studio, where they collaborated on a brand new CD with producer Kevin Bowe

(Tommy Castro, Paul Westerberg), they now bring you the blues - live - in all

its shades and colors.

With ten studio albums to her credit, Sue Foley (CAN)

is already a blues veteran. The Ottawa native began her recording career at

the age of 24, storming the international scene with a string of successful

releases on the Antone's and Shanachie labels. On her most recent Ruf Records

release, New Used Car, she showed off a mature blend of blues and rock

originals. Inspired by artists like Earl Hooker and Memphis Minnie, Foley's

tasteful guitar playing goes deep. Her vocals ooze sensuality.

Deborah Coleman (USA) waited until her duties as a parent

were fulfilled before devoting herself to music full-time in the mid-1990s. With

her six albums, she's earned 11 W.C. Handy Award nominations and a reputation as

"one of blues music's most exciting young talents" (USA Today). Coleman rocks

hard and never lets up.

The new kid on the block is Roxanne Potvin (CAN) - an

exciting new talent from the French-speaking province of Quebec. Potvin began

playing guitar at 15 and released a self-produced collection of original songs

in 2003. The buzz that CD created led to her breakout release The Way it

Feels, produced by Grammy-winner Colin Linden and featuring the all-star

support of Bruce Cockburn, John Hiatt and Daniel Lenois. Released at Ruf Records

in January 2007 (RUF 1128).
