“It has been a long time since I have seen a singer inspire a band of musicians as he did.” “If you ever are in need of an album to cozy up with a box of chocolates, a dozen roses, a magnum of sparkly and someone you love, Just Give Me One More Moment is just the ticket.”

BEAUTIFUL NOTHING – REVIEWS & HIGHLIGHTS
“COME COLOR ME” is a feisty thing, primo springtime guitar pop, hitting a sweet spot somewhere between school of early Coldplay and the West Coast big guitar sound exemplified by Yukon Blonde. Beautiful Nothing’s self-titled debut CD is set for release May 20, 2014 on Jeff Burns’ Blue Sapphire Music label, distributed by Universal Music Canada.” Lenny Stoute – Cashbox Canada
“This album is a massively entertaining slice of Power Pop and New Rock – while simultaneously being neither …Beautiful Nothing has managed to defy both categorization and influence spotting. The album fires on all cylinders with the first single, “COME COLOR ME“, a melange of ’80s brooding melodicism and a finger-popping bass hook courtesy James Featherstone reminiscent of local heroes Chalk Circle or even Breeding Ground. The production by Anthony Ludgate and Bill McDowell is first rate on this disc – well above indie band level.” Jamie Vernon
“First single COME COLOR ME is a well-crafted and melodic guitar-fuelled rock song that seems to possess all the necessary elements for a rock radio hit.” Kerry Doole, NCM
“Occasionally, very occasionally, a group or artist will emerge from the wannabe rabble with a release that just screams hit record! Toronto’s Beautiful Nothing is just such a band … Powered by Anthony Ludgate’s infectious vocals, Beautiful Nothing project a feel-good sound, driven by strong melodic numbers powered by strong lyrical hooks, and creative instrumental arrangements “ The Music Express – Keith Sharp
“The Hamilton/Burlington five-some created wisely crafted contemporary rock with strong references to early ‘80s new wave, with a hint of classical Clash and even an occasional rap vocal.” Edgar Breau – Hamilton Spectator
