Reflections is the first album that has been released under the name of HnH music. It features fourteen tracks and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.Review
As a listener you are taken on a journey not only to Mars, but also to This Other World. A world of strained personal relationships, the tension of national and international relationships, hear about the corruption of power and wealth as well as childhood memories being recalled, all within the twelve songs featured on this third album.Review
The recording of this album was initially started in 2019, but due to the Covid pandemic and the subsequent lock downs it was not ready for release until late summer 2021. The theme of this album is about the journey we take through life and the decisions that lead to the actions we ultimately make.Review
"Harper n Hubble music" are two friends who decided to get together to combine their musical ideas.
Paul Harper n Andy Hubble initially worked in education teaching Sound Production/Music Technology at Sandwell College, Paul later went on to teach for Bournville College, while Andy stayed on at Sandwell.
It wasn’t until after they both had left education that they decided to form a recording, production and song-writing partnership. Paul had been working with other musicians and vocalists for a while, which saw a number of his songs released by these artists. Paul and his wife Lynda live in Shropshire, which gives him more time to relax, write and play. Also according to Lyn, on the days of the HnH recording sessions it gets Paul from under her feet!
