Erick's story

Son of an officer in the RCAF, Erick was born on a Canadian air force base in Nova Scotia. He was nurtured in a musical environment led by his mother who initiated his study of violin and later on, he picked up the guitar to write his songs. No novice to live performances, the professionally trained vocalist was, at 12 years old, a member of various bands entertaining his first audiences. Erick signed a production & licensing deal at 18. Rebellious to embrace the Industry's demands, Erick decided to acquire more knowledge and became a lawyer. Putting his musical dreams on a shelf, he followed a more traditional path and kept his passion alive by writing songs, knowing that one day, they would be heard!

Throughout this very difficult choice, Erick has acquired rich and hard earned life experiences, allowing him to write lyrics that tell a story, share emotions and paint a picture of everyday challenges. His musical compositions and sound are influenced by Bach, Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Shawn Phillips, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Cat Stevens, U2, Sting, Elton John, Garth Brooks, the Eagles and Keith Urban.

The time has come to take these songs off the shelf! 2021 is his year folks, he is now in the process of launching his debut album "What it takes"! Erick is excited to have released the three first singles of the album: 'Coming Home', 'Waiting For You' and 'I Found Love in You (MJ's Song)'. He feels fortunate to work with Michael Benjoar, Erick Torres and some of the greatest session musicians of Nashville and around the world to celebrate, through their art, the magic of root instruments.

People write about
and say that...

His fourth single: What It Takes “is very roots infused, with a melodic harmonica and a present banjo. It’s a feel-good summer song meant to make the listener feel good”. And it does!
I am not a fan of Americana and rarely have any folk artists on my playlists, but Erick Beau is one of those exceptions. A small fish in a large pond, he may not be as established as larger artists, however, if ‘What It Takes’ is anything to go by he won’t be a small fish for long.
One of the best indicators of a good song is that in just one listen, you find yourself singing along the second time around. That is what you get with “What It Takes” by Erick Beau. Right off the bat, this song welcomes you in with a lighthearted arrangement, and from there has you moving and grooving along to the beautiful Bluegrass infused Americana.
