Singer-songwriter Tim Higgins writes and performs songs which spiral around issues dealing with love, loss, grief, and the downfall of society; his are personal songs that often carry broader social implications. Born and raised partly around Detroit, Michigan, and coastal Alabama, his Rust Belt meets Southern upbringing is channeled in his straightforward imagery and gravel-throated delivery.
His teenage and college years in Alabama lead to the formation of Bible Study, a collective of songwriters including Higgins, Emily Dozier-Ezell, and Kori Hensell. Their self-described "convoluted folk" genre garnered much attention in West Alabama, including performances at the Kentuck Folk Art Museum and the historic Bama Theatre. In 2014, Bible Study released their first record, Guilt Trip, recorded at WouldYou Studios in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, under the direction of England in 1819's Andrew Callaway.
Most recently, Higgins completed a West Coast house show tour, performing from San Diego to Seattle debuting new solo material, and most notably performing with Seattle indie darling Shelby Earl and Americana favorite Sera Cahoone (Sub Pop Records).
Higgins currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee, where he is working on a collection of new songs dealing with the ideas of blight, destruction, history, and responsibility.
