"Harper n Hubble music" is about two friends who decided to get together and combine their musical ideas.

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!
