New York City based pianist Hans Chew brings energetic rock 'n' roll with his newest track 'Junkers Blues' alongside a black and white new video. The single is from his 'Life & Love' album set for release on March 31st 2014 through At The Helm Records.
The video, directed by guitarist Dave Cavallo, opens with a suited up Hans taking to his piano for a smooth bluesy intro in a dark, smokey room. The visual then regularly cuts to him dancing and singing animatedly in the street, his fingers miming along as if playing some invisible ivories, as passers-by look on amusedly. It's a lively and super upbeat classic rock 'n' roll tune that's sure to get anyone's fingers clicking and toes tapping. Hans talent extends to both powerful, infectious vocals and rapid, electrifying piano-playing.
Chew was born in Tennessee and taught himself how to play piano. He had a variety of influences from classical to classic rock. 'My grandfather sang harmony in a Nashville gospel quartet and taught me that "high-lonesome sound"', he explained. 'While my mother turned me on to Hendrix and the Stones, my father only listened to classical music: I knew Beethoven's Fifth before Led Zeppelin's fourth.'
