William McCarthy Biography - Lead Singer of Augustines Goes Solo for Special Tour
After the break-up of former band Pela, this talented singer and guitarist and bandmate Eric Sanderson set about continuing where they had left off, recruiting drummer Rob Allen to complete the line-up. Originally known as We Are Augustines, they took their name from the month of August, citing multiple personal significances. They quickly became known for their energetic, interactive live performances, often to be found leaving the stage and playing amongst the crowd. After deciding to go their own way with the support of the indie community, they released Rise Ye Sunken Ships in 2011 on iTunes, followed by a worldwide release in 2012. The record was received well by critics, with special praise for single 'Book of James', a song dedicated to McCarthy's late brother.
The next couple of years would see the band perform at festivals across Europe, including Reading and Leeds, whilst also working on material for their second album which would be released in 2014. Billy McCarthy's songwriting gave him the confidence to increasingly come to the fore, and his self-penned music allowed him to wear his heart on his sleeve. Spending his childhood moving through foster homes in Northern California and coping with the death of both his mother and brother, he used music as a way of expressing the experiences that have defined him. These experiences are the basis of his solo tour, which will see him display a range of talents, including his musicianship, stories and artwork.
