Biography

McCue’s first band was known as Vertigo.

In 1988, McCue moved to Melbourne, Australia and took guitar lessons from Bruce Clarke. Answering an ad in the local press, she joined all-female rock band Girl Monstar as lead guitarist (1988-1993). The band eventually received an ARIA nomination for best independent act.

She then joined Australian female trio Eden AKA, who signed to Columbia Records in the USA. They released a self-titled album and performed in Canada and the USA at the Lilith Fair in 1998 and 1999.

McCue’s first solo album, Amazing Ordinary Things, was released in 1999 in Canada and Japan, and she toured with a number of well-known musicians, including an international tour with Lucinda Williams, who would often introduce McCue as “my new favorite artist… and an amazing guitarist”. Williams later included McCue on an ‘Artist’s Choice’ compilation alongside Paul Westerberg and Leonard Cohen.

McCue’s success on the Lucinda Williams tour prompted the release of a live album, Live: Ballad of an Outlaw Woman, recorded at The Fillmore in San Francisco, California, and her first Messenger Records release, Roll.
