Her style has been compared to the young Stevie Ray Vaughan's, her voice to a youthful Bonnie Raitt's, and when guitarist Sue Foley, 23, sends the notes pealing from her pink and silver Telecaster, she often surprises her audiences.

Echoes of Earl Hooker, Bessie Smith, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters and other forebears of the blues filter through the canon of singer, songwriter and guitarist Sue Foley. But with her latest release, last year's "Love Comin' Down," the Canadian-born, Texas-bred musician makes great strides to move beyond her key influences. Similar to how these legends parlayed their life experiences into art, Foley draws from personal upheaval in crafting a body of work with significant depth and revelation.

Over the years, the demo tape--usually a low-budget recording of a musician's work--has become the unofficial unit of currency in the music business. Thousands of aspirants send them to record labels, artist managers, producers, concert promoters, club owners, and even critics, in the hope of negotiating a taste of the spotlight. Many demos end up in the waste heap--some before they're heard--and the vast majority are not even acknowledged.

Sue Foley has been on the road singing the blues for eight years, and boy is she tired. Foley, who is performing tonight at Cozy's, called me from a phone booth in downtown Austin on her way to a doctor's appointment. She sounded so low energy that after a string of yeahs, no's, uh-huh's and guess-so's, I asked if it was something serious. Was she feeling OK? "Just routine," she said. After a moment of silence she continued, "I'm pretty mellow, until when I get up on stage."

Musical misogynists, beware Austin, Tex. The estrogen quotient in the city's lively blues scene couldn't get much higher, and Antone's--the famed club-cum-record label--has lately made a business of exporting its blues-belting womenfolk with a series of "Antone's Women" revue tours and albums. A whole sextet of formidable female co-headliners made its way to the Palomino on Friday, with a seventh femme fatale on stage in the backing band.

The tack that producer Jon Tiven has taken in this homage to the veteran composer of some of rock's biggest hits is perhaps the most revealing of several possible routes open to him: He's assembled a wide range of contemporary artists to do new versions of rock classics as well as some of Blackwell's lesser-known tunes.

Jennifer Warnes knows how baffling her career has been. Despite breakthrough commercial success in the 1980s--performing the most Oscar-winning songs (three)--the pop singer-songwriter now has neither a record label nor a manager. In fact, her last album, "The Hunter," was released nine years ago. So what's the story behind the virtual disappearance of one of the most sought-after session singers and vocal arrangers in the business?

Lee and Sam King, who are playing Saturday at Cozy's, grew up in Richmond in Northern California in the early 1960s. At that time, Lee King says their musical options were somewhat limited. "In the black community, there was church singing, and everything else was the blues," he remembers. "You were either singing about Jesus or you were singing the blues."

A diverse array, it is being served up on 12 stages covering 21 blocks in downtown's Gaslamp Quarter, and for the first time, a third day of shows has been added.
