House OF McCarrick

Martin McCarrick (born 29 July 1962, Luton, Bedfordshire) is an English cellist, keyboardist and guitarist.

He is best known for his work Siouxsie and the Banshees from 1987 until 1995. He recorded with them three studio albums: Peepshow, Superstition and The Rapture. His biggest hit with the band was in 1991 with the single "Kiss Them For Me" which reached the number twenty-three in the Billboard Hot 100.

McCarrick is also known for his membership in the hard rock band "Therapy?":[1] he joined them in 1996 (his first gig as a full-time member being a secret fan-club show in Dublin, Ireland on 10 April 1996), having previously supplied guest cello work on their albums Troublegum and Infernal Love, as well as various live appearances with the band since 1992. During the bands UK tour in 2003, McCarrick perforated his ear-drum and had to leave mid-tour. His last show with Therapy? was in Glasgow, Scotland on 28 November 2003. McCarrick left Therapy? in March 2004.

He has also had a long association with other musicians, recording and performing with This Mortal Coil,[2] Marc Almond, and Bryan Ferry. Plus, he has become the cellist of choice for British rock bands, appearing on stage with both 3 Colours Red and Rico (to whose Violent Silences album he contributed).

McCarrick's sister, the violinist Gini Ball, has been married to Soft Cell instrumentalist David Ball.

He and his wife, Kimberlee, now work together as The McCarricks.
