Foley is an original rock band hailing from Sioux Falls, SD. Foley’s roots are with the original solo project created by Foley frontman, Ryan Harr. Harr’s act, 100 Words, spent time playing in the Sioux Falls area and then Harr went on the road to tour the country with a cover band and writing for 100 Words. After touring, Harr decided to settle down in his home town and take on the challenge of pursuing an original act in the Sioux Falls area.
Harr (lead vocals and lead guitar) teamed up with two lifelong friends and fellow musicians Phil Mueller (drums and vocals) and Sean Albertson (rhythm guitar and vocals), shortly after the creative juices started flowing the band, Foley, was born. Blaine Eilts (bass guitar) soon joined in to complete the rock group and allowed the band to start playing in the local music scene as much as possible.
Foley soon created a strong following in southeast South Dakota and was given the opportunity to open for national acts such as: Red, Rehab, Flyleaf, Art of Dying, Janus, Caroline Spine, Pop Evil, Smile Empty Soul, Soil, Future Leads of the World, Bobaflex, New Medicine, Dropping Daylight, and others.
After Blain Eilts left the band to pursue his musical interests in Nashville, Dave Rensink joined the group and plays a steady bass guitar to this day. Foley also completed a full length album called Fight Through.
