about

April is Herbieman's favorite month. It's the month he was born .On this month in 2003 he also arrived to Miami in the most unconventional way: in his sailboat.
It took him 95 days to get to his final destination in order to pursue his musical dream
Seven thousand miles behind was his musical past, his bands, his studio and the lonely Buenos Aires years. In 1993 his family moved to Miami and Herbieman stayed in his hometown Buenos Aires attending college and starting his musical experience. This new solitary stage was the base for his first serious compositions. He began playing in 2 bands during that period. In 1994 El Chelin, a Latin rock band with a huge following, that still plays some of Herbieman's compositions and later in 1996 he joined the well established Scherzo that became his main project until his departure from Argentina in 2003. During this time the band developed a big audience, released 4 albums and played in all the main venues in Buenos Aires and other cities of Argentina. MTV Latin America chose one of their videos and played it repeatedly in the year. This gave the band reach to a broader audience. In 2000 he also started a career in music production and established a recording studio where he produced countless upcoming artists in the local scene. He recorded over 20 projects that ranged from jazz, rock, pop, tango and folklore in only 2 years. He finally produced Scherzo's last album with legendary producer Amilcar Gilabert that worked with all the big names in Latin Rock and Pop: Seru Giran, Charly Garcia, Mercedes Sosa, Leon Gieco, Divididos, 2 Minutos and Raul Di Blasio among others.
During the big political and economic crisis in 2002 Herbieman decided it was time to make his long time trip true: sail to Miami with all his instruments. Before leaving he gathered all his experience and focused in recording his first solo album: "Little Boy ".
He decided to make it the same way he came to Miami: by himself. He wrote the tunes, he played all the instruments, he sung, he produced and mixed. The result is a fabulous combination of rock, pop and jazz mixed in 12 catchy songs that remind the listener of the soft voice of John Mayer, the textures of Dave Matthews and the energy and strong attitude of early Lenny Kravitz.
On January 5th, 2003 he left his beloved Buenos Aires to start his journey thru the Atlantic Ocean to arrive 95 days later to his new home in Miami. He prepared himself for this trip and the transition to his new life with lots of meditation and inner thought.
