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.

Started off with Jax Anderson, which had some good songs, but would’ve been better if she had more effects. Then Miya Folick, which I felt was a combination of Chrissy Hynde & the lead singer of The Cranberries. She had some effects, but I guess God Save The Queen-Bishop Briggs was the heavy hitter with a digital wall, that accentuated her incredible voice range.

Briggs was born in London to Scottish parents from Bishopbriggs, Scotland, which inspired her professional name. At age four, she moved to Tokyo with her parents. She sang in public for the first time at a Tokyo karaoke bar, and immediately realized she wanted to continue performing throughout her life. Growing up with the city’s karaoke bar traditions and hearing music from Motown musicians to The Beatles at home also influenced her to pursue music. She started writing her own songs at age seven, which she would perform for her family. She moved to Hong Kong at age 10, where she lived until she was 18.

Not too long ago, 25-year-old singer-songwriter Sarah McLaughlin realized that performing under her own name had become unwise. Worried that people might confuse her with famed Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, whom she adores, McLaughlin eventually changed her stage name to Bishop Briggs, in honor of the Scottish town of Bishopbriggs, where her parents were raised.

So, what else do you need to know about Bishop? She writes most of her own songs, can play the piano, and according to her Instagram she is in a relationship. She is currently dating the lead vocalist of indie rock band Sir Sly Landon Jacobs. “Looking goofy next to pretty flowers a a pretty artist,” her BF recently captioned a photo of the couple.

In a climate where many bands can’t make three full-length albums, Sleeping With Sirens has kept it together for 10 years. They’ve been able to evolve musically and personally, remaining relevant in their ability to craft killer pop hooks and fist-clenching riffage. With a brand-new album, How It Feels To Be Lost, on an appropriate label (Sumerian Records), SWS are ready to excite and invigorate both fans and new listeners alike.

There’s been a lot of build up around the debut album of Sarah Grace McLaughlin, known to the music world as British-American singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs. Briggs has been releasing singles for a few years now, steadily building a following via streaming platforms and Shazam. Before the release of Church of Scars, Briggs released two self-titled E.P.s, resulting in over 400 million global streams and features in MTV’s Scream tv series, Fifty Shades Freed, and an Acura commercial that gained her significant notoriety. Early acclaim earned her comparisons to artists like Adele and an opening spot on a Coldplay tour.



The neon outfit she rocked onstage at ALTer Ego did fit her personality, if not the dark persona on her records. She treated the Forum stage like a boxing ring-cum-track, bouncing around and smiling widely after not just every song, including her first single, “Wild Horses,” but nearly every chorus, clearly grateful to be there. Even when there was an issue with the bass as she got ready to sing “Baby,” she never faltered, instead enthusiastically telling the audience the story behind this first love song she had ever written and high fiving her bassist, Taylor Van Ginkel, after the problem was fixed.

Briggs, 26, first performed the tune live at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in May, a month after Church dropped. She wasn’t even sure if she was going to release the track and was a little nervous about testing it out publicly. When ET chatted with Briggs ahead of her set at the 2019iHeartRadio ALTer Ego concert at The Forum in Inglewood, California, on Saturday, the catchy anthem to true love in all its iterations had already been gaining fans on the airwaves, the new sound helping her find a slightly different footing.

In January 2016, Briggs released the single “River” and changed her recording name to Bishop Briggs to avoid confusion with a heavy metal band of the same name. The song was a commercial success. Shortly after its release, the song quickly made it to number 1 on Hype Machine’s Popular charts and reached number 2 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50. It also received an Honorable Mention on Shazam’s predicted Songs of the Summer 2016, which was featured in Billboard. As of May 2016, “River” was steadily climbing the Shazam Future Hits charts. “River” has so far peaked in the top 10 on the Rock Airplay and the Alternative Songs chart.

The director behind the music videos is Jungle George. He is an artist and someone who isn’t afraid of mixing darkness with art. Thankfully I don’t think you can be creative without being free. Bishop Briggs performs “River” live at Indie88 in the Collective Arts Black Box.

Foreign Air has spent the better part of 2017 on the road captivating audiences with their energetic live show supporting the likes of Phantogram, Bleachers as well as a string of summer festivals. The pair is currently bunkered in the studio recording songs for their forthcoming debut album.

For example, with Drake, when he put out ‘Energy’, that wasn’t written during the Degrassi days, that was written when he felt betrayed, once he got money. Something about that as a listener gives you the feeling that you’re getting an insight about him as a human, which is what music should be, but there’s also such an opportunity to hide behind your music as well and to hide behind your poetry and metaphors. In the course of writing the album, that’s what I really tried to change about my writing. To be more direct. The most recent song that got submitted to the album is ‘Water’. That was my most direct song ever and I hope I continue to do that. To push myself to the point where I’m afraid that it is too obvious what experience or person I’m talking about.

A few weeks ago, Bishop Briggs posted a countdown on social media. While we did not know what the countdown was for, we did know that it had something to do with Phase 2.” Were we about to get a new single? A new album? Luckily, we did not have to wait too long to find out, as Bishop Briggs dropped Champion” and an accompanying music video last week. This single, which is the first new single since she released her debut album last year, is about perseverance and acceptance of one’s self. You can watch the valiant video below.

Following up on the resounding success of “Wild Horses,” Bishop returns with “River,” a searing and cathartic track that sets the tone for her forthcoming debut EP. With more new material and live performances on the way, Bishop is poised to be one of 2016’s biggest breakout artists.

But after two years, a trove of singles, and an opening slot on Coldplay ‘s 2016 tour, Briggs is finally ready to let herself be seen — or, as she would put it, to “live her truth.” Her debut album, Church of Scars , is a testament to this mentality, backing raw, barrel-chested blues trap with candid reflections on life and love, and giving rise to some of the most honest work she’s ever made.

It’s Bishop Briggs’ second single, and is her first song to rank on the US Alt and US Hot Rock charts. To promote the track, Bishop performed River” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Soulful singer and songwriter of dark electro-pop, with a stage name borrowed from her family’s hometown of Bishopbriggs, Scotland.

The worldly Bishop Briggs is currently touring the country and wowing audiences with her unforgettable vocals. She will open for Coldplay starting on August 20th at the Rose Bowl out in Los Angeles, CA. I recently had the chance to talk with Bishop about her career, Jack Antonoff and a psychic that helped her create a hit.

It’s unclear precisely why, but Briggs is on a Kill Bill-style mission of vengeance here. She even appears as a would-be bride in a desert church and everything. But for most of the clip, Briggs is a militant avenger — shaved head, tank top, can’t lose — out for revenge. She slugs a few guys with a metal briefcase outside a biker bar, then enters and decimates a few more, leaving one intact to retrieve from him something to put inside the attaché: a heart? Symbolism, man.

Briggs was born in London to Scottish parents from Bishopbriggs, Scotland, which inspired her professional name. At age four, she moved to Tokyo with her parents. She sang in public for the first time at a Tokyo karaoke bar, and immediately realized she wanted to continue performing throughout her life. Growing up with the city’s karaoke bar traditions and hearing music from Motown musicians to The Beatles at home also influenced her to pursue music. She started writing her own songs at age seven, which she would perform for her family. She moved to Hong Kong at age 10, where she lived until she was 18. After graduating from Hong Kong International School she moved to Los Angeles, California.

Much of the project centers around what Briggs calls a long, tumultuous love affair with music. She grew up listening to old school acts like Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding, road-testing her performance chops in karaoke bars — a rite of passage in cities like Tokyo and Hong Kong, where she split her childhood. At 18, she moved to Los Angeles for college, where she cut her teeth gigging at any venue that would have her, and, eventually, landed a record deal.

It’s difficult to confine Bishop Briggs to a genre or category. Born in London of Scottish and Irish heritage, Bishop spent her formative years growing up in Japan and Hong Kong. Looking to vent her teenage angst, she fell in love with music through underage trips to Japanese karaoke bars. Days after graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles to hone her artistic vision with the help of producers Mark Jackson and Ian Brendon Scott.
