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” reached #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart and #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 charts, with airplay on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation, Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Show and a prized spot in Acura’s 2016 TLX and ESPN’s NFL Playoffs ads.
She followed up with the RIAA-certified gold single, “River,” a searing and cathartic track that captured the attention of tastemakers and gatekeepers and rose to #3 on the Alternative chart with over 170 million global streams; and “Dream” (watch the video HERE, directed by Dano Cerny).
Bishop has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (watch that performance HERE), Late Night With Seth Meyers (watch that performance HERE), Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! (watch that performance HERE). The critically acclaimed self-titled Bishop Briggs EP, her sold out debut headlining tour, and live performance slots opening for Coldplay, Kaleo, alt-J, and Bleachers triggered the emergence of Bishop Briggs in 2017. In 2018, the release of “White Flag” and her debut album, underscored by her next headlining tour, proclaim the arrival of Bishop Briggs as one of 2018’s most important breakout artists.
