Quintessential rock chick and Superjesus frontwoman Sarah McLeod is set to impress local audiences.
With a fistful of new material to unleash, fresh from the release of her new album Rocky’s Diner, McLeod will deliver her revamped solo show at the Sooki Lounge on Thursday 26 October.
McLeod has re-established herself as one of the hardest-working musicians in the caper, through a heavy touring schedule and a release of new music in August this year.
This is in addition to her widely acknowledged, award-winning work with Superjesus.
Though, McLeod told the ‘Mail’ she had approached this recent solo release in a completely different manner.
“I headed to New York for three months and devoted all my time to writing music,” she said.
“I wanted to go somewhere cold. If it’s warm outside, I’m like a little kid. I want to go outside and play with all the other boys and girls.
“In New York, I spent up to 16 hours a day writing music.”
McLeod said it didn’t take too long for Rocky’s Diner to take shape.
“The first two songs I scrapped, but in the third Rocky’s Diner started to show itself and went from there.
“The album is about the day-to-day, the mundane which can mean so much to people. It doesn’t matter who you are, or how much you have, it’s about how you feel inside that counts.”
McLeod recently released a single and clip, Wild Hearts, from the album.
She said local crowds and loyal followers would notice a marked change in her show, although she’s only too happy to pull out some classics if the crowd so desires.
Interestingly, she has adapted one of her guitars so it essentially transforms from an acoustic into a bass guitar.
“I played around with a few guitars before this one, so I could get it right. Basically it has two jacks, with the second only picking up the bass strings,” she said.
“Sonically, the show sounds great and hopefully the crowd at Sooki will love it.”
