Ellen Foley (born in St. Louis, Missouri) is an American singer and actress whose range of talent and experience has spanned edgy rock, mainstream pop, standard Broadway, sitcom television, and Hollywood. She has released several albums on her own but she is perhaps best known for her collaborative work. Her debut album from 1979, Nightout is the most memorable, evoking the classic girl group sound of the 1960s, notably Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. The record was produced by Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson. Her first big break was singing the duet with Meat Loaf on "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" and she later sang on Joe Jackson's Body and Soul. She was featured as a backup singer for Ian Hunter and The Blue Oyster Cult. She can be heard on The Clash album Sandinista! in the song "Hitsville UK". All four members of The Clash appeared on her 1981 album The Spirit of St. Louis and Mick Jones and Joe Strummer co-wrote a number of songs for the album. The Clash's hit song "Should I Stay or Should I Go" from the Combat Rock album, was about the turbulent relationship they shared. It was written and sung by Mick Jones. Ellen foley was also featured in a band called Pandora's Box, formed by Jim Steinman in 1989. For several years, Ellen has worked in film, TV, Broadway and raised two wonderful sons. BUT--she's gone back to her roots and has formed a band called "Ellen Foley and The Dirty Old Men" (actually they're not particularly dirty or old). They are currently performing in NYC. So Stop Right There and check out the shows.
She is also currently fronting the band "Rock Royalty: Live!" featuring band members from the greatest groups of the 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s www.rockroyalty.com
