2017 has been quite a year for Cattle & Cane. Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios in London, their sophomore album ‘Mirrors’ was released in May and saw the band hit the top 20 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart – thanks in part to a PledgeMusic campaign which reached over 280% of its target.

Tracks from ‘Mirrors’ have picked up national radio plays from the likes of Elton John, Dermot O’Leary, Frank Skinner, Janice Long, Gary Crowley and Tom Robinson, as well as extensive support from Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing.

The band also recorded a live session for Vintage TV and were added to the BT TV music playlist, as well as featuring on shows such as Sunday Brunch, Made In Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex. Further media support came with features in The Independent, Metro, Music Week, Record Of The Day, Clash, The Big Issue, UMA and many more as Cattle & Cane continue to pick up the kind of critical acclaim that most unsigned bands can only dream of.

Over on Spotify, recent singles ‘Love On Your Hands’, ‘7 Hours’ and 'Fool For You’ have accumulated over 2 millions streams and featured in playlists such as New Music Friday, Your Coffee Break and Feelgood Pop along the way.

It’s on the live stage where Cattle & Cane really come into their own and having honed their craft this year by touring with The Head and The Heart and Jake Isaac, as well as supporting Tom Odell and Brian Wilson, it’s been no surprise to see ‘sold-out’ signs pop-up on their own headline shows all over the UK.

"Beth McCarthy is the vibrant Yorkshire singer/songwriter with a quirky voice, a passion for storytelling and a shining personality. Her style forms a delicate mix of country honesty, foot-tapping pop and indie folk, with her vocals falling close to the likes of Ellie Goulding and KT Tunstall. Beth’s Yorkshire roots are reflected in her music, bringing a unique charm to a timeless genre.

In her 7 years of performing, Beth has toured the UK with her acoustic guitar, playing numerous festivals such as Latitude, alongside Haim and The Black Keys, and recognised support slots with the likes of ELO, Heaven 17 and Nizlopi.

At just 16 years old, Beth became a household name after featuring on the BBC television show ‘The Voice UK’. After her Blind Audition was viewed by over 10 million people, Beth went on to reach the knockout stages of the competition as part of Team Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs.

In 2016, Beth’s career reached new heights when her stripped back rendition of Ralph McTell’s ‘Streets of London’ was named as the official soundtrack for the film '100 Streets’ starring Idris Elba. She then went on to find success in the United States, performing on award winning cable TV show ‘JBTV’ and playing shows in Chicago and Florida.

Beth had a monumental start to 2017, with her first single ‘Pretty Lies’ receiving stellar reviews and reaching number 2 in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. Now, fresh off her biggest tour to date and having released her new single ‘Mr and Mrs Brown’, the “Beth success express” shows no signs of slowing.

Described by Bob Harris as “A new name for 2017”, Beth McCarthy is proving that with her irrepressible passion and refreshing lust for life, she is ready to take the music industry by storm."
