Known for his time in indie-rock bands Pela and Augustines, singer-songwriter William McCarthy has embarked on his solo journey with the release of his first solo album, Shelter. The album serves as a musical exploration and self-reflection following the demise of Augustines. While McCarthy developed new tracks for the album, he also pays tribute to numerous writers that impacted this time in his life.
The Shelter tour is his first post-Augustines US tour, and will see McCarthy travel from the Phoenix area, up the west coast, and through to Vancouver. Much like the soul-searching nature of the album, the Shelter West Coast Tour will bring his journey to life through a series of intimate living room shows, featuring his solo work, Augustines favorites, Pela deep cuts, and the stories that brought him to this moment.
