New Single: Are You Good Enough

Check out the new Ellen Foley single at the American Songwriter site!

Are You Good Enough?” so rocks right out of the gate that it is thrilling. And this thrill expanded even more as I listened to it the first time. And also the next thousand-plus times. It is the kind of rock and roll we’ve missed: essential and pure. - Paul Zollo, American Songwriter

Stop. Right. There.

Three words that changed my life forever. Three words that Jim Steinman gave me. Three words that gave me a career in music. And three words that exploded worldwide. Three words penned by the most brilliant, hilarious and unique human being I have ever known.
