Composer and Music Producer Ray Chew, is high on the heels of his triumph as Musical Director for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards 2013 on CBS. The broadcast – which drew its highest ratings since 2006 with a viewership of 17.6 million – saw Chew composing over half of the musical backdrop for the three plus hour ceremony, celebrating the brightest stars in television. Host Neil Patrick Harris introduced the band with the moniker “Ray Chew and the Network Notes,” and “Chew approved.”
The music maestro is geared to move forward with several other opportunities in TV and film as a composer, broadening his sound into scores and soundtracks. Chew has locked down a new short film entry for this year’s Sundance Film Festival as well as TV specials on the 2014 calendar.

Also on the horizon, Chew will launch two new musical acts under his production company, in addition to his continued commitment to NARAS (the Grammy organization) and Aaron Davis Hall, City College as a Board.
