Hey there, thanks for reading my new updated version bio, by us, Kim and Tony
Tony and I would Love to meet you, sing you a song, share a story. We write, sing and play because it is who we are...
Loss, tragedy, love, struggle, joy and pain, we express in music...
Kim and Tony have compiled original songs and recreate cover songs in a new interpreted way. They released a new cd early 2013 . They create a very intimate venue. It's emotional, and their songs make you, the audience "feel" a connection. Take the time to take a listen...
“Kim Hightower's Cemetery Road is a plethora of sounds. It has songs that will make you tap your feet to an endless array of good times with "The Change" to songs that treat the heart to a powerful pack of emotion like "Joey." Her passion comes through in every song and allows listeners to connect to her message. Kim's voice and demeanor will garner fans of Aimee Mann and Liz Phair, so fans of those musical women are urged to pick up, and respect Kim Hightower's Cemetery Road.”
“FALL by Tony Mawdesley. Bluewolf has been given a copy of a yet unreleased album and to say the least Bluewolf is impressed. Interesting and intriguing, bitter, but reflective,FALL has a beat or rather rhythm all of its own, one which draws you into this raw release from long time musician and songwriter Tony Mawdesley – perhaps better known in recent times as the lead singer in The Brendan Collins Band. FALL is an album which is filled with emotion, raw feeling and total talent, touching the nerve on some tracks and others simply addressing the basic underlying emotions of peoples of today's world looking for something more in their lives and wondering why…….. The various tracks probably didn't start out presenting a snapshot of emotion, and if asked he may deny it is an album of life and emotion over several decades, but whatever the inspiration it has melded into a reflection of the world lost for love. Or does it? ”
