If you thought that a mini moog was the latest choc covered bar from cadburys or a new version of the wonderful clubman or cooper then shame on you and we have to say you won’t be pals with Beau , as Mr.Bowen it seems, according to those that know, is the master of the mini moog and is rarely seen without it, anyway nothing we like more than a moog so let us continue. Cosmic guitar hero; glam overlord; star child in flares – Beau Bowen is all of these and far more. His effortlessly groovy, melodically colossal songs have stepped straight of out of classic 70s top ten singles charts…or maybe the 60s…or the 80s…or…
Part of Beau Bowen’s genius is that his music manages to evoke some of the iconic names of musicians from across the decades, from Bowie to Bolan, from Prince to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, whilst retaining a sound which is immediately his own.

Hailing originally from Australia, Beau Bowen is now firmly based in London, his lair festooned with flares, sequinned capes, feathered caps and boots requiring a step ladder to get into but most importantly, the base from which his extraordinary music is born. His gift for lyrics and melody is matched by a prodigious talent for guitar-playing, his virtuoso Fender Strat outbursts aided by a passion for vintage gear, minimoogs and an array of flashy pedals.
