Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at You&I's profile here on Gig masters.
You&I are Tony Mawdesley and Kim Hightower. They are sometimes accompanied by Charles Guy on percussion.

Both Tony and Kim are seasoned professionals and have been playing as a duo for around 4 years.
They have an enormous collection of songs available and can tailor their sets to almost any taste and occasion. They encompass many genres and styles with their signature harmonies breathing new life into many favorites.
They can cater to almost any event or occasion and can perform for you either as a solo, duo or trio group.

Tony is originally from the UK where he has enjoyed a successful career as a singer songwriter and performer with various bands. His 2000 release “songs by Percy Verence” with his group North, gained critical acclaim and some success in Europe and Australia. He is a classically trained guitarist and can provide instrumental music when required. He is known for his guitar skills as well as a wonderful singing voice. He has a huge collection of songs available across many genres and can add new songs on request.

Kim is originally from Baltimore MD and has also enjoyed a successful career as a singer songwriter.

As well as being able to sing beautifully, she is also a great piano player and percussionist. She is a number one pick as a studio session singer and regularly works with some top producers.

Please take a look at You&I's song list, it's pretty huge… plus they can add to it on request.

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...

PRESS :
“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? ”

We really enjoyed You&I! The variety in the music they played was just perfect for the occasion. Our guests commented all evening about how great the music was. Overall we were extremely satisfied and hope to have them return again next year. I would highly recommend Kim & Tony for any special occasion when live acoustic music is needed. They are very professional and talented!
