Streets Of London - Beth McCarthy
Our LCM featured artist today Beth McCarthy has just released a great new haunting cover of a Ralph McTell classic 'Streets Of London'. The official song for the film '100 Streets'. With a highly anticipated debut album due shortly, Beth is one to watch in 2017.
If you would like to see Beth performing live in London, she will be at Tramp on the 8th November.
Beth McCarthy has appeared on prime time television in front of an audience of 10 million viewers, been mentored by Kaiser Chief's front man Ricky Wilson, completed two tours of the UK, released a debut single and EP, taken on numerous festivals including Latitude and Green Man, played recognized support slots with bands such at The Orchestra (formerly known as E.L.O), Nizlopi and Shed Seven - but the 17 year old singer/songwriter is just getting started.
Taking her influences from various different genre’s and artists, Beth’s style has been compared to that of Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran, only with a ‘little more edge and a lot more Yorkshire’. Beth plays a mix of her own songs, some poignant, some catchy, all well-crafted and cover versions in her own dynamic style. Her ability to tell a story through her songs combined with her cheeky on-stage presence and light-hearted, bubbly attitude makes Beth’s live shows both engaging yet informal and relatable.
