Tim Higgins Lauded by Rolling Stone as a singer of “slow-burning (ballads) with a deep, rumbling baritone,” Tim Higgins writes and performs songs that spiral around issues dealing with love, loss, destruction, and history; His are personal songs that often carry broader social implications. Higgins’ songs are rooted in Southern Gothic poetry, and are instantly recognizable due to his distinctive style of guitar playing and deep voice. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and coastal Alabama, his Rust Belt meets Southern upbringing is channeled in his straightforward imagery and gravel-throated delivery. In November 2018, Higgins released his first single and music video, “Blight”, the title track to his debut album. The song was included on Rolling Stone's Best New Music list and touted for its ability to evoke the “dark, doomed beauty” of his hometown. Recently, Higgins was invited to showcase his unique voice at NPR Music critic Ann Powers' launch party for her latest book, "Good Booty: Love and Sex, Black and White, Body and Soul in American Music." He has toured extensively throughout the U.S., and has performed with prominent Seattle musician Shelby Earl, Americana favorite Sera Cahoone, and critically acclaimed songwriter Amy Rigby. When not touring, Higgins resides in Greensboro, Alabama.
