"Immediately very likeable. There's a certain flavour to Beautiful Nubia's music which is a sure and pleasurable thing. His lyrics speak for humans in general - through a poetry of traditional fable, modern clear-sightedness, balance and good humour - and his band are consistently right on the button. If they don't melt your heart, seek help.” - Rick Sanders - fRoots
