They say it’s never too late to come home. Montreal artist Erick Beau knows this very well. After a successful 30-year career in law, Beau comes home to his true passion: music. He teams up with Montreal producer Michael Benjoar, to co-produce his debut album, What it Takes, coming out in May 2021. Beau will release “Coming Home”, his first single from the album, on September 25, 2020.
To record the album, Beau recruited some of the top session musicians in Nashville, including drummer Hubert Payne, from country group Little Big Town, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Ellison on steel guitar, guitar and banjo.
Due to the COVID pandemic, Beau recorded his guitar and vocals in Montreal while the other musicians recorded their tracks in Nashville. Beau also worked with Grammy nominee Eric Torres and Georgetown Mastering for the mixing and mastering of the tracks.
Erick Beau’s new single, “Coming Home”, from his debut album What it Takes, comes out on September 25th. Look out for more singles and music videos from the same album later this year.
Born on a Canadian air force base in Nova Scotia in1965, Beau grew up in a musical home. He first studied violin and later took up the guitar to write songs. He also studied voice and was performing with various bands by age 12.
He later signed a production and licensing deal by 18. As a rebellious teen, he refused to embrace the music industry’s demands and instead turned to studying law. While pursuing his legal career, he continued to write songs in his spare time. Now in his 50s, Beau is ready to circle back to his true love and share his music with the world.
Erick Beau is on radio rotation with the track “Coming Home”.
