ABOUT BISHOP BRIGGS
Born in London to Scottish parents, Bishop Briggs grew up in Japan and Hong Kong. Days after graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles where, after years of performing at any venue that would have her, she was discovered in a small hole-in-the-wall by a former-A&R rep and the rest was history. The music of Bishop Briggs transcends the limitations of singular genres, blending folk, pop and electronic music into a wholly unique sound. Her debut track “Wild Horses” was featured in Acura’s 2016 TLX and ESPN’s NFL Playoffs ads. She followed up with RIAA-certified gold single, “River,” a searing and cathartic track that has captured the attention of tastemakers and gatekeepers and rose to #3 on the Alternative chart with over 40 million global streams. Fresh off her sold out debut headlining tour, her critically acclaimed self-titledBishop Briggs EP release, and live performance opening slots for Coldplay, Kaleo and alt-J, Bishop Briggs is one of 2017’s biggest breakout artists. She has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers, Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! with Cold War Kids. Bishop just released her new single “Dream” and plans to release her debut album in Spring 2018
