Divide by Zero Records is very excited to announce the debut solo release of Hans Chew, a 7" featuring both "New Cypress Grove Boogie" and "Forever Again." Hans Chew's skill as a piano player has previously been on display both in a complementary fashion to Jack Rose (appearing as a member of Jack's backing band at Arthurdesh as well as on both The Black Dirt Sessions and Luck In The Valley) and as an integral member of D. Charles Speer and the Helix (including his vocal turns on both “Life Insurance” off Distillation and “Bar-Abbas Blues” off the “In Madagascar” 7”). This new single offers an expanded glimpse at not only Chew’s songwriting prowess but also his powerful boogie-blues, bar-rockin’ piano skills. Both tracks presented on this 7” are slated to appear on Chew’s forthcoming debut album, Tennessee and Other Stories, but appear in different versions exclusive to this release. The 7” itself is a vivid picture disc bearing stunning shots by Jake Cunningham and comes from a limited edition of 500 copies, each accompanied by a download coupon for DRM-free 320kbps MP3s. This record is a joint release between Divide by Zero and Three Lobed Records. Due to co-release nature, Divide by Zero has limited stock.
