Back in June, Metalholic named the “15 Hottest Female Guitar Shredders”, putting Tara near the top of the list.
When we say hottest, we aren’t talking about sexy, we’re talking about the steam coming off the fretboards when these ladies of the axe cut loose. No more is the guitar a boys only club, and it’s about damn time we celebrate and recognize.
Tara started her music career by paying her dues on the Canadian bar circuit playing in a cover band until being discovered by the Lander sisters. The Queen shredder for London, Ontario’s Kittie, McLeod has been a driving force for the all-female metal quartet since 2005. She has made her six-string presence felt on three of the band’s six studio albums, including last year’s triumphant, I’ve Failed You. She is never without her trademark PRS and Gibson Les Paul guitars.
