A HUSBAND and wife are hoping for chart success after releasing a single.

Pippa and Tom Gearing, of Ringtale Place, Baldock, teamed up with vocal talent Karen Louise, of Welwyn, to produce the track Lost in U which is now available on digital download.

Pippa, a backing vocalist, and Tom, a songwriter and pianist, met Karen Louise in 2003.

Lost in U is one of 12 tracks on the album Bringing Me Home which is due for release in September, under Welwyn GC label Starfisch Records.

She said: "It's very exciting and it's been really fun for me. To have 90 per cent backing vocals on an album is virtually unheard of.

"As a relatively new person to the industry it's been very flattering for me and it's helped launch my career."

She added: "Obviously its early days, but when you believe in something and pour your heart and soul into it, something wonderful is bound to come out of it."

Tom, 26, co-wrote the album with Karen Louise, 24, and provided piano accompaniment.

He said: "I have been involved in music for quite a long time now but if this is successful it will be a great boost for our careers."

Pippa added: "You never know how these things are going to go. It can take years to get off the ground but Karen is so talented. It's a first class album.

"It's really taken off for us but it's still early days. Just to achieve this much is great but it will be ground-breaking for us if this goes big."

The release of Bringing Me Home will coincide with Karen and Tom supporting X-Factor finalist Journey South on a 39-date UK tour, starting on September 16.
