Doc Higgins is a multi-instrumentalist who writes songs as a means of communicating the need for social action, and as a basis for thoughtful consideration of the broad realities of human existence. His art is in running a deep stream through a wide range of melody and style. Doc's 2011 CD "Strange Highs And Watery Eyes" contains original songs played in a folky 12-string mode with the support of a bit of his piano playing and smooth sounding Gibson Les Paul leads. Tracks include: Wish Life Again, Find Another Way, This Ole Gun, and Song For The People of Haiti.

Doc is the founder of OpenFolk, a not-for-profit organization that seeks to promote and facilitate folk arts in the community. He hosts the OpenFolk Open Stage and Studio every Sunday and encourages fellow singer-songwriters to take ownership of their creative and expressive development in a "do it yourself" (DIY) approach.

The "Strange Highs And Watery Eyes" CD is an exquisite example of DIY as Doc wrote, sang, played all instruments (real and synth'd), arranged, recorded, mastered, the songs, and designed, drew, and imaged the artwork for the package. This is the new way of music of the people and for the people. Doc hopes to use his home-based recording experience to assist others in doing the same.
