EDITORS’ NOTES

Combining the powerful catharsis of soul with trap-tinged production, Bishop Briggs’ first EP announces Sarah Grace McLaughlin as a striking new voice. At times (“River,” “Wild Horse”), McLaughlin’s delivery is haunted, almost bluesy; other times (“The Way I Do”), she manages to tap into the towering, bare-all catharsis of an artist like Adele—a range that makes her one of the more unusual new contenders of 2017.

Waiting for Bishop to blow up everyone needs her they just don't know yet

jaw dropping

bishop briggs is a force to be reckoned with. the deep cut beats that back up the powerful lyrics surely pack a punch for her debut ep. she is an amazing talent and i can't wait to see how her music grows. well deserves five stars and more.

The New Powerhouse of the Music Industry

Authentic Trap Soul with a flare of Alternative and R&B. With extremely emotive and powerful vocals that could compete with the likes of Florence Welch, Bishop Briggs has a bright future ahead of her.

About Bishop Briggs

Bishop Briggs is a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter of dark pop. Born Sarah Grace McLaughlin, she was briefly known as BISHOP before reverting to the full form of her branding inspiration, her family's hometown of Bishopbriggs, Scotland, in order to avoid confusion with a heavy metal band of the same name. Briggs was born in London, England to Scottish parents but attended school in Tokyo and Hong Kong before settling in Los Angeles after secondary school. There, she was heard performing in a local bar, which led to the recording of her first single, "Wild Horses," with the producing team of Mark Jackson and Ian Scott, who also helped launch the indie rock band DOROTHY. The song was licensed for an Acura TV commercial and became an Internet hit. Exhibiting shades of trip-hop with acoustic guitar, electronic beats, and a strong dose of soul, "River" followed in early 2016 and hit multiple streaming and social networking charts. The success of her early singles brought widespread exposure for Briggs, and by the fall of that year she was opening shows for Coldplay and Kaleo and had made her television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The re-release of her "Wild Horses" single fared well on U.S. charts and was later included on her self-titled debut EP in early 2017. March 2018 saw the release of the single "White Flag." ~ Marcy Donelson
