They have been working together since the beginning of 2009 and have produced this 4 track EP inspired by a sense of optimism and joy in life that they both share. The sleeve also reflects Belle and Mark’s interest in fashion and film respectively, twin themes that will be explored with future releases.

Belle Erskine is well known in the London music scene and has shared the stage and recording studio with the likes of Groove Armada and Celine Dion and she is also a regular at Ronnie Scott’s.

For the forthcoming debut album Herbert gathered a range of musicians to record on the tracks including Richard Erksine on bass and guitar, Steve Turner (Kylie’s sometime keyboard player) and Matt Berry on drums while Herbert himself also plays bass and guitar.

This debut EP is full of calming yet moving songs which demonstrate the duo’s strong vocals and the talented writing. The music has been influenced by the different influences throughout Mark's life, creating a sound that is a blend of pop, jazz and folk.

The EP showcases a range of styles, from the simple, almost-hymn like "Glory" and the late night, Jazz-tinged "Perfect Moment" to the epic feel of "Nirvana" and the slow-burning power of the ballad "Heart on Fire."

The forthcoming album follows the release of the singles Simple, the Double A-side Hey It’s Alright and Up For Air and more recently Monkey on the Bus, all of which are available to download on iTunes and has received widespread radio play.

With the bulk of their debut album in the can, the band is working on final tracks and with a strong undercurrent of joy, hope and optimism running this EP, looks destined to find a wide and appreciative audience.
