To our ears, his music sounds something like a cross between Donovan and Bert Jansch…His songs are based around a simply strummed acoustic guitar and he has a nice, subtle, underrated voice…Damn, this guy is good 5/5

…a wonderful disc of acoustic beauty. A potent talent too long neglected, Beau may now finally get his due.
All Music Guide (April 2009)
(John) Peel called him “a remarkable writer and performer”…

I have to admit that folk music generally doesn’t make its way into my regular playlists that often, but I’m definitely making it a point to keep Edge Of The Dark set aside for that next rainy Sunday
Ryan Sparks, www.classicrockrevisited.com (May 2009)
…a masterful guitarist on the twelve string, a subtly nuanced singer and a strong songsmith who, with few means, put enchantment into penetrating (or impressive) folksongs, which also point to underlying Blues/Rock moments. A valuable rediscovery!
Good Times, (Germany) May 2009
…we can appreciate someone who John Peel said was a outstanding composer – good to listen in all circumstances…This album is one to be listened to when you have time to think and let the pieces of the Jigsaw fall into place … Beau is undoubtedly an artist to rediscover and this is a first choice compilation that will undoubtedly please folk fans and other music lovers. (***1/2)
Yann Carduner, Highlands magazine (May 2009)
…a likeable folky album
Classic Rock Society (June 2009)
…an acoustic performer who plays a 12 string and makes a lot of his delicate voice, subtle and understated, with an ability to pen some good songs, the man never managed to reach the audience he deserved and here’s a chance to rectify that.
