McCarthy gave a performance in Nottingham, England, which was received warmly.

He was featured by NPR in 2016 in the lead-up to the release of his first album, Solo.

While benefiting from the substantial collection of pieces composed for the left hand by the likes of Britten, Ravel, and Prokofiev, McCarthy also selected works by Chopin, Liszt, and Scriabin for his album.
