Suzie McNeil Plays Ottawa, Toronto and Releases New Tune

Published: 2006-10-05
She captured audiences around the world with her powerful vocals as a contestant on Rock Star: INXS, now Suzie McNeil is focusing on her solo career with a new album in the works and some Canadian performances.

Known on Rock Star as Sweet Suzie McNeil, the Toronto native made it to the top four before INXS decided she wasn't right for the band. Since leaving the show, McNeil has shared the stage with former judges Dave Navarro and INXS and sang backup for Pink on the North American leg of her summer tour.

McNeil released her first single, "Believe" on iTunes in September. The song is also the theme for the reality series, The Biggest Loser. She can also be found singing a cover of Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" with Clay Aiken on his new release, A Thousand Different Ways.

At the end of September, McNeil released the first official single from her album "Hung Up" to radio. A release date hasn't been set for the new album, but McNeil's official site revealed details of some upcoming gigs in Ottawa and Toronto with a winter tour to follow. McNeil will play two shows in Toronto, one at the Bell Celebrity Gala as well as a birthday bash on Oct. 15 but only fans who subscribe to the mailing list can find out the details to the her birthday show. "Hung Up" and "Believe" are streaming on McNeil's official MySpace.
