Talented teen musician looking for band after Cavern Club offer

Macy O’Neill has been offered a gig at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.

The club was the birthplace of the Beatles and was the launching pad for many singers and bands that became household names.

Now Macy O’Neill, a 14-year-old student from Highley who attends Concord College in Shrewsbury, has been lined up for a gig on the Hallowed Stage in the near future.

But before she hits the club, she hopes to form a band, and ‘music-loving’ musicians are being invited to audition from 2-4pm on April 3 at Load Street Studios in Kidderminster, which recently moved to Number 3, Edwin Avenue, Kidderminster.

Those interested in participating in the auditions are invited to reserve a slot or to show up the same day.

Macy O’Neill has been offered a gig at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.

The talented Macy has previously appeared on Voice Kids and sings at open mic nights in Newport.

She appeared as Jemima, a lead role, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Alexandra Theater in Birmingham and two years ago took to the streets to raise money for the homeless.

Macy, who writes and produces his own material and works with Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton, said: “Anyone who comes to audition, I want them to be passionate about their music.

“I want them to live and breathe music.”

Her mother, Naomi Waterson, 53, said: “Macy was singing at an open mic night in Newport when she was approached by someone who said they could find her a place at the Cavern. Club.

“We spoke on the phone and are now waiting to hear when she might appear.

“It’s a fantastic, incredible opportunity and it has so many people behind it to support it.

“She is a solo singer but now wants to find a band.

Macy O’Neill has previously appeared on The Voice.

“His music has been on Apple Music and Spotify and a few songs, Games and Paint My Feelings, are doing pretty well.

“Macy has just released a single, You Showed Me, which she wrote and performed in Worcester Cathedral at a memorial service for her former music teacher at Abberley Hall School, Martin Schellenberg.

“Proceeds from this song go to the Martin Schellenberg Trust to help underprivileged students gain access to music lessons.

“We are now hoping for equally talented musicians to audition to form a band and anyone interested can book a slot by calling me on 07367597015 or just show up on April 3.”
