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 to 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. Her music 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. Bishop Briggs has 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 the back of her sold out debut headlining tour, a critically acclaimed self-titled EP release and live performance opening slots for Coldplay, Kaleo and alt-J, Bishop Briggs is one of 2017’s biggest breakout artists. Bishop Briggs has performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (watch that performance below), NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers (watch that performance below, TBS’ Conan, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! (watch that performance w/ Cold War Kids below).
