Beth Macari is back with “Stronger” and some amazing news!

by Christopher Smith

Following the success of her previous singles “Clone” and “Boy” (which we profiled last November) – which received international airplay – Beth Macari returns with her sparkling, Eastern influenced new single “Stronger”!

Beth has kicked off 2019 by signing a deal with independent label Humble Angel Records, founded by former Warner Music Group executive Keiron Donoghue. She was selected by BBC Introducing to perform at their New Year, New Artist showcase at the iconic Sage, Gateshead in January, which was also aired on Tom Robinson’s show on BBC 6 Music. She followed this with a short tour supporting Davina Michelle and was invited back to SoFar Sounds Liverpool for their Best Of show following her first appearance there in 2018.

Having done support slots for some of the biggest up and coming names in the music industry, Beth Macari got her own time in the spotlight whilst fronting the live house band on Sky One celebrity panel show Bring the Noise, where she sang alongside legends Nicole Scherzinger, Tinie Tempah and Mel C regularly.

Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Beth has always had a gift for music. Beth spent two years touring with singer, actor, broadcaster and legend Jane McDonald. Jane was so impressed that she brought Beth back to sing with her on her last ever appearance on Loose Women.

Beth has featured in a short film with Adam Garcia of ‘Coyote Ugly’ fame and has recently acted alongside Mackenzie Crook, Johnny Vegas and a whole cohort of well known actors in a short film set to be released on Netflix later on in the year. Once again proving that Beth Macari has many a string to her bow.

With lots of new music in the pipeline, festival appearances and touring, 2019 is set to be a big year for this Northern pop starlet!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
