This young Australian singer songwriter started his music career playing on a plastic piano.  Twenty-five years later James Higgins has earned his reputation in the European underground soul music scene as a connoisseur of funk, soul and acid jazz.

After ten years on the performance roller coaster Higgins boasts an impressive folio of acclaimed albums and touring escapades as an artist, bandleader, songwriter and producer.  Higgins has performed on stage with the likes of Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies and the Sneaky Sound System.

In more recent times he stood under the lights as front man for his own group Soul Continuum and played support for Los Amigos Invisibles and Katie Noonan and the Captains.  Over the past few years Higgins dared to dream a new future and emerged as a solo artist.  This prolific writer searched for a name that would best describe him and The Quick Brown Fox was born.  Brown loves his creative independence.  Earlier this year he launched his debut EP Where Does Your Apple Grow? and earned a whole new fan base.  Complete in a crisp grey suit complete with his grandfather’s gold watch this Quick Brown Fox is ready to flash his soul-funk best at the Sphinx Rock Cafe, Sunday.
