Biography of Stephen McCarthy
Stephen McCarthy has always been heavily influenced by Tony Bennett, Chet Baker and Bobby Darin, and while he has his own unique sound these influences may explain why he is becoming known as one of the "new originals".
Stephen was born and raised in South Wales, studied in London from 1992 to 1995 and since graduating toured extensively in the UK as well as working in London. Ranging from Trios to Big Band Stephen has enjoyed performing with a large number of musicians in a wide range of venues.
During August and September 2006 Stephen worked with composer Phillip Putnam and Box Of Wood Music in San Francisco.
Call Me Irresponsible, features arrangements by Steve Hill and superb playing by Frazer Snell, Chris Dagley and Adrian Revell.
