Bertie Higgins

Like his great, great grandfather, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German poet who penned “Faust”, Bertie Higgins is a storyteller. He was born Elbert Joseph Higgins of Portuguese, Irish and German descent and raised in the picturesque Greek community of Tarpon Springs, Florida. Bertie is an intellectual romantic who loves to paint story songs about living and loving in a tropical paradise.

His love songs explore the efforts of man trying to fathom the mystery and allure of woman. His fantasy songs deal with the beauty and sensuality of the tropics and his story songs combine past experiences and future hopes. The resounding theme throughout Bertie’s work: “Make the best of today lest tomorrow never comes”

Higgin’s 1981 song “Key Largo” spent 17 weeks on the Billboard Top 40 and was certified gold by the RIAA…
