The Hi-Tops, a five “girl” group of talented musicians have already realized local success in the Louisville market, and some in the California markets. Now they are ready for regional and even more, national acclaim. One thing is certain. They are in it for the right reason.
“We are in this together because we love music and it would be awesome if we made it,” said lead singer Remington (Remi) Maxwell. “But we do it for the music.”
The Hi-Tops, at first glance, may appear to be just a novelty group. Five young ladies, aged 13 to17, and all quite attractive. They remind you of a modern-day Go-Go’s or Bangles, albeit, considerably younger. But this group is not just a “gimmick” band; they back it up with talent. And they are not just a “covers” band – they have a CD out with several original songs on it and have 10 originals to their credit. The ladies readily acknowledge that their songs are a joint effort along with their coach, Mark Maxwell, who is also Remi’s father, and Louisville music producer, Michael Sanders.
The self-titled CD is, with the exception of “The World Spins,” a collection of upbeat, up tempo rock songs that are ideal for moving on down the highway, knocking out the housework, doing outdoor chores, etc. Without looking at the CD cover, you quickly forget you are listening to a bunch of teenagers.
