Born in London but a citizen of the world, Bishop Briggs takes elements of soul, R&B, hip-hop and booming indie, wraps them in a forceful, expansive voice and exhibits them with rare grace. The product of an intercontinental upbringing across Europe, Asia and America, she was first spotted in LA playing the small bar scene. This lead to her first single ‘Wild Horses’, a great distillation of the universe Bishop Briggs inhabits. Acoustic plucking gives way to bombastic bass and a banger is born. Her debut album Church of Scars was released this year and, coupled with her appearance on the Fifty Shades Free soundtrack (covering our own INXS), brought this young powerhouse into sharper focus worldwide.
