“They are brilliant! They really are excellent!!” – Mark Cagney, TV3

“Where Is The Love’ takes a stand close by the sloppy rawness of early Rolling Stones, allied to the menace of Jim Morrison on vocals. It’s full of slicing guitars, earth-scorching riffs and nifty hooks.” – Jackie Hayden, Hot Press

“She’s a Beauty definitely has an individual sound to them, difficult to compare to anything else. There is a vague underlying sound similar to English band, The Hoosiers with a slight reminder of Snow Patrol in the slower songs, mixed with half a dozen other sounds”- Jenny Darmody, Dublin Soul Festival team

“A band that could turn over an empty biscuit tin, bang away and still get a top tune out of it.” – Phillip Ó’Baoighealláin, Music Review Unsigned

“There’s a lot going on in the ‘She’s A Beauty’ sound and it’s all good. The vocals are quality ‘Jack l’ style while the music varies from hard rock to jazz. An interesting mix by a talented band!”-2 U I Bestow. Music blog site.

 “Strong distinctive vocals and an almost reed like guitar sound, there are echoes of everything from the Frames to Bloc Party and a nod to classic jazz in their material. Their finely crafted songs are dynamic, with swooping choruses, and dramatic notes throughout.” – The Anglo Celt

“Steadily gaining recognition as one of the best up-and-coming live acts around, the buzz surrounding She’s a Beauty at the moment is palpable. At a time when Irish Music is upping its game despite the dreaded ‘R’ Word, this Kildare quartet are confidently rising to the challenge.” – Sarah Folan – Indiesight
