Skinny Hightower

Instrument: Piano | Location: Atlanta

If smooth jazz needs inspiration for a unique and meaningful future, its artists need look no further than Skinny Hightower – an extraordinary artist who defies the norm by following his own muse and drawing on his limitless creative potential rather than simply following the hit making patterns of the past.

A music producer with a solid background as a multi-instrumentalist jazz musician, Skinny Hightower emerged in 2017 with his self-released label debut Emotions which boasts a number one Billboard single in Taboo. He holds three total top 10 jazz Billboard singles to his name with One Way Street and Sample That following respectively from his follow-up release Retrospect in 2018. As an artist, he has performed at various events and jazz festivals to include the Seabreeze Jazz Festival and Catalina Island Jazztrax Festival. His full-range production style has earned him a reputation as a formidable artist in jazz, but his plans have shifted from that of an artist to a well-rounded and established record producer, evident in his involvement in many parallel projects for other artists.
