Beth McCarthy

Beth McCarthy is a singer-songwriter from York who has been gigging with her guitar since 2010, best known as a contestant on Series 3 of ‘The Voice’ in the UK and for her platform on TikTok and social media. In the words of Meadows Music Management, Beth’s music “tells the stories of a twenty-something trying to understand love, friendship, and the feelings that come with figuring out who you are”. Beth’s ability to tell a story through her songs, combined with her cheeky on-stage presence is something that engages the audience on a more personal level and makes her performances feel more like an experience than a show.

Her early career took her influences as a solo singer-songwriter from acoustic folk/country pop such as Ed Sheeran, Nizlopi, Taylor Swift and the lyrical stylings of The Script, Following the successful release of her first single ‘Hero’ on to iTunes in September 2012, her debut EP ‘Northern Light’ followed in the summer of 2013. During this era she played recognised support slots with bands such as Shed Seven and Paper Aeroplanes and expanded her on-stage presence to include a louder, full-band sound.

Further EPs and singles released since then include ‘Streets of London’, ‘Pretty Lies’, the ‘Self Portrait’ EP in 2019 and the ‘No Hard Feelings’ EP in 2022.
