Biography

23 June 1944, USA. This vocalist achieved fame as a member of the Orlons, a Philadelphia-based vocal group which enjoyed success with ‘The Wah Watusi’ and ‘Don’t Hang Up’. The unit disbanded in 1968 when Hightower went to the UK to pursue a career as a session singer. She contributed to Joe Cocker’s international smash hit ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’, and her later appearances included Muddy Waters’ London Sessions (1972), Dana Gillespie’s Wasn’t Born A Man (1973), Doris Troy’s Stretching Out and Kevin Ayers’ Confessions Of Dr. Dream (both 1974). During this period Hightower was also a member of Charge, a short-lived studio group that also featured former Grease Band stalwarts Neil Hubbard, Alan Spenner and Chris Stainton. Her only solo album was produced by Ric Grech.
