The Story So Far...


William McCarthy was the primary songwriter in New York City bands Pela and Augustines, and is also a writer, storyteller and visual artist. He is currently based in Berlin, Germany.

In January and February 2016, he toured Europe and the UK with his first ever one-man show “Journals, Maps, Stories & Songs: An Evening with William McCarthy, received with great reviews and sold out venues.

“A jaw-dropping, knockabout odyssey”

“McCarthy effectively seized gentle command of every iota of emotion in the room”

Quays News

“His lyrical intimacy had struck a profound chord with each member of the audience”

Quays News

“McCarthy’s key message that he has a need to write and perform these songs”

“His power is mind blowing”

“He can take a room from engrossed silence to arms-in-the-air ecstasy in minutes”
