A young Leeds singer -
songwriter is one of the first names to record an album on the new
Dandelion label - private project of Polydor man Clive Selwood. The
gentleman in question is called Beau, which is also the name of the album.
all the songs are Beau’s, as is all the accompaniment - on a 12-string
guitar. You may not have heard about Beau yet, but you probably will. He
is 23, lives in St Chad’s Avenue in Headingley, works for a Building
Society in Leeds and has been writing songs for as long as he can remember.
He says he is quite content, and is not mad keen to turn professional.
“Looking, seeing, thinking, believing” is how Beau writes his songs. “If
the idea is strong enough, the song is strong. If you haven’t much of an
opinion on anything the song isn’t going to be worth it,” he says.
Everything started for Beau when he got in touch with Selwood, manager of
John Peel. “He became my manager, and a few weeks later he told me that
Peel was setting up a new label, and would I record for it.” “So I signed
up and everything went from there.”
