Band: Tim Higgins with Mads Dalsgaard
Date: Sunday, June 30 at 3 p.m.
Venue: Fairhope Brewing Company, 914 Nichols Ave., fairhopebrewing.com
The Mobile Bay Area’s collection of craft breweries provide an excellent environment for the perfect Sunday afternoon. Fairhope Brewing Company will be filling that time with the music of singer-songwriter Tim Higgins.
Before relocating to Alabama, Higgins spent a majority of his childhood in Detroit. When he entered college, Higgins helped form a collective of singer-songwriters under the name Bible Study. Since going solo, Higgins has focused his songs on “love, loss, grief and the downfall of society.”
Higgins has established himself in the Nashville scene and is preparing for the release of his solo debut, “Blight.” The singer-songwriter laid the tracks for this album with Parker McAnnally (The Prescriptions) in a two-room schoolhouse in Falkville, Alabama. Higgins is using the title track as a preview for his debut effort. This single is the perfect introduction to Higgins’ musical world.
Vocally, Higgins evokes the rawness of Bruce Springsteen and the seduction of Nick Cave. Musically, this singer-songwriter avoids the modern music industry’s vague “Americana” label with a haunting mix of inventive modern alt. rock with twang-filled alt. country overtones.
Higgins will use his Eastern Shore set to not only perform his original tunes but also provide the backstory behind these compositions. Mads Dalsgaard will be joining Higgins at Fairhope Brewing Company. This Danish guitarist will add a little jazz guitar to the show’s musical mix.
