Aaron has performed at international music festivals such as SXSW (Austin), CMJ (New York), Popkomm (Berlin) and London’s Concrete and Glass as well as appearing at WOMAdelaide in 2017. Musical influences include Bonnie Prince Billy, Camille, Father John Misty, Elvis Perkins, Feist, Big Thief, Angel Olson and Andrew Bird and his songs are a mix of old style folk/country with dark, alternative bends and with melodies that wrap their knuckles around love, loss and despair.
Billy McCarthy is a musician, songwriter, artist and author. As the former frontman of New York bands Pela and more recently Augustines, Billy’s lyrics and vocals have won him acclaim as a master of live performances, selling out venues across the United States, Europe and beyond. His lyrics explore the backstreets of the human condition, delivered with an unapologetic truth that both excites and resonates as familiar. Following sold-out success of solo tours across Europe, McCarthy released a second solo album Wild Eyes, and is currently working on new music projects and continuing to perform internationally.
