ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album of Zydeco-tinged acoustic power pop shots will leave you shaking your head.

See, New York-born, Toronto-raised Tony Hightower is quite possibly the best songwriter left in either place.

His richly textured stories of real people working, falling in & out of love and lust, making and atoning for their mistakes and reveling in the promise of each new day may mostly share as their setting the cultural melting pot of downtown Toronto, but his themes are universal.

Tony's artfully artless songs light up the mind like klieg lights, while his ear for a great hook and his boundless energy take the listener anywhere they want to go.

He takes you to the precipice of disaster again and again, peering over with you, giving you a push, pulling you back, whispering, Saved your life.

Gustav Plympton, Antimatters

Tony Hightower's poppy as hell, but smarter than the heavens.
This Toronto Native writes intelligent informed folk songs that are hooky enough to go straight to college radio. And his voice is strong and good enough to clearly carry his words through, so when he's funny, you know it. When he's poignant, you can tell. Whether talking about the end of modern civilization or a girl giving up boys, or an affair with a rock star who is categorically NOT Ani Difranco, you can hear the story, though not so well that you don't want to listen again. And again. And Again.
