Biography

 

Blurb (less than 120 words):

People across America are saying this emerging duo’s performances leave them feeling as if they’ve “just read a great novel.”

From a one-bedroom farmhouse in the middle of 180 acres in Texas, Ghosts of the American Road is the latest brainchild from acclaimed songwriter Kevin Higgins and his talented musical partner, Barbara Malteze. Performing coast-to-coast, this duo has logged over 380,000 miles and collected seven Texas Music Awards along the way. Inspired by Higgins’ cinematographic compositions, Ghosts of the American Road create beautiful music. Defying comparisons, one thing’s for certain…no other artists come close to sounding like them. This is “American Music” where all styles come together at a distinctly original musical crossroads.

Blurb (less than 170 words):

People across America are saying this emerging duo’s performances leave them feeling as if they’ve “just read a great novel.”  And, it’s no wonder. Kevin Higgins is a published poet from West Texas, trapped in the body of a working-class dreamer. “Higgins ascends to the pantheon of eloquent and evocative American singer-songwriters with that rare gift for articulating the fullness of human experience within splendid and alluring melodies,” wrote Austin veteran music journalist Rob Patterson. Hearing Barbara Malteze deliver a song is tantamount to a religious experience. From the rough-and-tumble rock clubs of Boston and L.A.; to the once-famous Palomino club in Hollywood, there remains a mystery as to how one so demure and unassuming could be given a voice as big as all outdoors. Together, they are Ghosts of the American Road; weaving individual vocal styles over guitar and piano, embellishing melodic poetry that has become their cinematographic, signature sound. This is “American Music”, where all styles come together at a distinctly original musical crossroads.
