Higley was born from strong friendships, and even stronger coffee. In 2008, Kevin Carl (G-Whiz, Sloppy Seconds) reached out to his old friends Bill Stevenson (main songwriter of Descendents, All and ex Black Flag) and Duane Kiener (G-Whiz) to found a new band called Higley. They started to record five new songs… but shortly thereafter, various setbacks befell the band members and everything was put on hold. In 2010, Kevin resurrected the project and recorded four more songs with Bob Hoag from Pollen. In 2015 James Menefee from River City High came on board. James recorded the vocals for the existing songs and also brought along two new songs that he had written. The resulting album is a testimony to friends, perseverance, food and fun.
