Alexis Hightower

 

“Alexis Hightower delivers passionate acoustic soul…mesmerizing audiences with a dancer’s grace.” -Ebony.com

Alexis Hightower, singer, writer, multi-instrumentalist and actress, brings a soulful vibe to jazzy R&B and makes music you want to listen to again and again. Described by Ebony.com in 2013 as “mesmerizing,” Alexis’ chic sound is a sophisticated mix of classic jazz touched with the hip-hop and classic soul she was grew up on. 

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Alexis grew up in California and made the long-anticipated move to New York City during the heyday of hip hop, spoken word and neo-Soul in the 1990’s. Her search for her sound led to collaborations with emerging talents including Roy Hargrove, Kareem Riggins, Eric Lewis (ELEW), Saul Williams, Tamar Kali and Mums, among others.  Alexis, who has headlined at coveted NYC venues including The Public Theater, BAM Café, and The Shomburg, made her European festival debut in Spain in 2001 at the San Sebastian Music Festival.  That same year she released a self-produced EP, “Lucy’s Blues,” and later toured throughout Spain and traveled to Tokyo as a dancer.  She has also appeared in US Broadway national tours along with several and Off and Off-Off Broadway productions.

 Girl Next Door, Alexis’ first full-length album, consist of songs she wrote over a long period of time.  Featuring performances by Duane Eubanks on trumpet, David Bowie guitar-man Gerry Leonard, Marques Walls on drums, George Farmer on bass along with Alexis on piano, drum programming and keyboard parts, Girl Next Door is an ensemble-driven, ten-track journey through the life and times of a young artist. “This is the sum of all my parts,” Alexis states, “it’s all the music I ever loved and that am right now.” With tracks that keep you head-bopping to a sweet, sophisticated groove, “Girl Next Door” is a smart, expressive engine of jazz-infused soul. 

Look for, “Girl Next Door,” the album on iTunes, December, 2014.
