Allen Higgins was born in February of 1969, in the middle of 2 decades of great music. He was sort of a “late bloomer” not picking up the guitar until 1986. “I’ve always had to play catch up” says Allen,”maybe that’s part of what drives me.” Always a lover of good songs, Allen doesn’t like to waste time on lame ideas. “If it doesn’t sound like a strong idea out of the gate, I usually junk it out and move on” he says. Whether his own material, his band Becoming August or any other project Allen always tries to live up to the best writers and players of all time. Says Allen, “you’ve always got to give it your best. Especially being a nobody from nowhere, otherwise why bother?”
