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.
