'how far to hitchin' is my project name. I'm Paul Dews and I'm an English songwriter and musician.
I will have my debut album out in 2017. It's called ‘Easy Targets’.
I've been described as original, slightly off beat and difficult to categorise.
Some people think I'm a bit prog in the same way that Everything Everything, Elbow, Radiohead and Midlake are a bit prog but sometimes I'm a bit Jazzy, a bit punky, a bit poppy and a bit electro in the same way that Massive Attack, Blur, Young Knives, XTC and John Grant are while at the same time hopefully retaining my own unique identity.
I would describe my music as Alternative Experimental Art rock with a twist of NeoProg. Crikey!
Expect cello's, ebow's, uke's, flutes, guitars distorted, keyboards contorted, splashes, crashes, feathers in hats, water drops, peacocks and purring cats.
My songs are sad,angry, often tongue in cheek and I just can't stop writing them which is a good thing as I'm working on my second album right now! OMG what am I on!
I also like to brew my own beer and sometimes go outside of the studio to do birdwatching.
