BISHOP BRIGGS – Live In-Store Performance
Friday, April 20th 7:00pm
Bishop Briggs, is a child of the world, born in London to Scottish parents, she spent her early years in Tokyo karaoke bars, then on to Hong Kong, then LA and school at Musician’s Institute. She first crossed our radar with her appearance on the Cold Wars Kids song “So Tied Up”. But before we got there, she was already quite the internet sensation, tracking commercials for Acura, and climbing the Shazam search results (apparently that’s a thing).
Bishop Briggs has toured as the opening act for Coldplay, released a couple of very hot EPs, and is poised to deliver her full-length debut, Church of Scars, on April 20th.
Bringing a hip-hop edge and sensibility to her perfect dark pop sound, Bishop Briggs is going to have one hell of a year in 2018.
Rolling Stone picked her in their 10 New Artists you need to Know feature (2016), and described her music as sounding like “Guttural dirges over a Nineties sci-fi film score”, and went on to recommend her to fans of Florence + the Machine, Banks, & PJ Harvey. There’s a lot more going on, but this is a great starting place.
Dream – Unstoppable and gorgeous
River – Her breakout song.
