Daniel Higgs Live
with Bill Nace

Higgs is a visual artist and legendary singer of the band Lungfish.

Higgs made his first appearance in the band Reptile House, disbanding in '86. Lungfish emerged in 1987 releasing the Necklace of Heads 12" on Simple Machines. Almost immediately thereafter they found their permanent home at Dischord, where for the next twenty years Higgs and company would create music that was challenging and thought-provoking. The most prolific of any Dischord band, Lungfish recorded ten full length LPs for the label before going on hiatus in 2006.

In the time since the pause in the Lungfish journey Higgs has been pursuing a solo career, often taking to just a banjo and a jaw harp, and setting about to make his newest masterpiece, as well as a continued partnership with longtime musical/artistic compatriot Asa Osbourne in The Pupils. Most recently he has been gathering notoriety for his artwork.
