Phew! is an expression and also a collection of musicians with different back grounds getting on board the rock and roll train. Fronted by Edmund Leung, former member of the seminal 90s band …HUH!?, with Kwok Wai Cheung (Crazy Lion, SIQ) on guitar Peter Scherr, a well established jazz musician on bass and Hubert So, a classically trained musician on drums.
Phew! will be playing some of Edmund’s own very atmospheric alternative music as well as old favourites from the …HUH!? era.

One Horse Town
Fronted by Corey Tam (The Gatling Gun Revival), acoustic-folk-rock singer-songwriter originally hailing from Toronto, One Horse Town was a regular on the local music scene and had appeared at events such as Clockenflap and TVB’s Indie Music Stand. The music is influenced by a range of different styles, from sombre finger-pick driven songs to more straight forward catchy pop-rock numbers, with hints of blues, jazz and gospel.
One Horse Town is Corey Tam (vocal/guitar), Jennifer Skelton (piano), Calvin Wong (bass) and Gabe Andre (drums).
