    Up Close And Acoustic With How Far To Hitchin

    How Far To Hitchin, the Prog based DIY project by Paul Dews, delivers a powerful punch with the album 'Easy Targets'. The elaborate songs created by Paul for How Far To Hitchin, touch on various aspects of the human condition that are not always so well addressed in interpersonal relationships... let alone rock music.
