LISTEN & BE HEARD '(Tito's) lyrics never talk down to the kids, but do a great job of letting them know that adults can sometimes remember what it was like to be a child.' A FAMILY RUNS THROUGH IT Fronted by songwriter Tito Uquillas, The Hipwaders issued their first children's music album, 'The Smile Project' in 2004. The album received a Parent's Choice Award that year and was quickly followed up in 2005 by 'The Hipwaders', the band's official debut. The band was nominated by XM Satellite Radio as one of the best new kid's' music acts of 2005 and the album earned another Parent's Choice Award for the band in 2006. In 2007, The Hipwaders were invited to perform at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago. Their follow-up album, 'Educated Kid', was ranked #5 on the 'Fids & Kamily' poll for 2007 and the title track reached #1 on XMKiDs. The Hipwaders approach of not 'talking down' to children has gained them fans of all ages who appreciate music that is fun, upbeat, and rocks!
