SASSY Superjesus frontwoman Sarah McLeod is stepping out on her own this week to unveil her latest musical venture.

Sporting a new band, new look and new sound, McLeod begins her first major run of dates in Wollongong tonight and will unleash songs from her forthcoming solo album.

Catch McLeod in Newcastle tomorrow night at the Bar on the Hill. lw1 Set for release later this year, Beauty Was a Tiger features a duet with Living End's Chris Che ney titled Pri vate School Girl as well as McLeod's first single Let's Get Together. lw-6 McLeod recorded the album in the Upper Hunter, settling in to a guesthouse at Cessnock where she and the band befriended a couple of local pub regulars during their stay.

It's a step away from her work with The Superjesus, presenting McLeod in what she describes as her most raw and honest form.

``I want people to know me better; I don't think I ever gave people that much of me with The Superjesus,'' McLeod said.

``I hid behind ambiguity. I really just want people to know me better, whether they like it or not.'' Having spent 10 years as the voice behind successful Australian rock band The Superjesus, McLeod is recognised as one of the country's finest female rock performers.

No stranger to success, McLeod sold almost 300,000 albums and picked up three ARIA awards during her time with the band.

McLeod and her new band Stu Hunter (keyboards), Mick Skelton (drums), Patch Brown (guitar) and Grant Fitzpatrick (bass) begin an east coast tour in Wollongong tonight supporting Thirsty Merc throughout June and July.

Tickets are available online at www.bigtix.com.au, on campus at Contact or at the door on the night for $14 (students) or $20 (guests).
