Total Eclipse: The Music of Jim Steinman
Tuesday, May 5, 54 Below, NYC
"In 2014, Foley’s vocals are ripe and refined, treading towards Americana and blues/jazz terrain that give her songs not just immense appeal, yet show in no uncertain terms that that Foley is on top of her game as a vocalist. However it’s the sheer quality and depth of the songs that give her the space for expression as a vocalist, and collectively, the songs on ‘About Time’ are superb." Rockbrat
"A Rock-n-Roll Queen Goes Americana: It's About Time for Ellen Foley." No Depression
"It's not especially common for artists to make their best albums three and a half decades down the line. Nevertheless, that's exactly what Ellen Foley seems to have done with About Time." Critical Mob
Ellen Foley's new album, About Time, available here, looked to the music that started her down this road as a teenager in St. Louis, the three-minute masterpieces that made her into a singer: The Shirelles, The Rolling Stones, The Shangri-Las. To make the record, she enlisted coproducer Eric Ambel, from the legendary roots rock band The Del Lords: cowriter Paul Foglino, award-winning songwriter from cult favorites 5 Chinese Brothers; and The Worried Men, musicians drawn from her past, present, and future.
