ELLEN FOLEY – ” Fighting Words “

Posted: January 2, 2022 in MUSIC

As a singer, five solo LPs plus recordings with Meat Loaf, The Clash, Ian Hunter & Mick Ronson. Acting includes film and stage productions of “Hair,” TV series “Night Court,” and more.

Working with everybody Ellen Foley released a trilogy of albums in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s that achieved a cultish renown, but then she moved on to theater, TV, and film work. She re-emerged as a recording artist with 2013’s spare, rootsy “About Time”, buoyed by songwriter Paul Foglino. Overdue follow-up “Fighting Words” finds Foglino’s tunes reigniting Foley’s rock ‘n’ roll fire, and her ageless, bigger-than-life pipes are more than up to the task. Being backed by the cream of NYC rock stalwarts doesn’t hurt either.
