"He’s a force of nature!" - Marc Riley, BBC Radio 6 Music
‘Wired’ EP 8/10 - Classic Rock
9/10 - ‘The Blues Magazine’

Hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed EP, boogie piano king Henri Herbert returns with his follow up ‘You Say’ EP. Production comes courtesy of renowned producer and engineer ‘Neil Brockbank’ (Nick Lowe/Bryan Ferry/Ocean Colour Scene), with rock ‘n’ roll ace Nick Jones on drums and a UK debut from French bassist Lucas Itie. Co-written with his band mates, the EP delivers four classy compositions. Lucas Itie lays down a magical bass groove on opener ‘She Thinks She Do’, which calls to mind early Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash. Title track ‘You Say’, about fair-weather friends, follows with its bouncing Beatlesque pop groove and Ennio Morricone influenced backing vocals, before the tempo shifts down a gear with ‘Chicago Sound’, a wistful
ballad about being far away from home and loved ones, inspired by life on the road. ‘Lonely Man Blues’, a rocking New Orleans flavoured boogie which tells of the seedy people encountered while travelling across the USA between shows, wraps things up.

Herbert continues to grow as a writer and performer, racking up huge YouTube numbers along the way. With showcase performances at SXSW 2016, US tour dates in April and August, and a UK tour in June, it won’t be long before the Henri Herbert ‘steam train’ comes hurtling your way.
