Spotlight: 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 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. 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 No. 1 on Spotify's U.S. Viral Chart and No. 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. Briggs has followed with RIAA-certified Gold single, “River,” a searing and cathartic track that has captured the attention of tastemakers and gatekeepers and rose to No. 3 on the Alternative chart with over 40 million global streams. Fresh off the heels of her sold-out debut headlining tour, a critically acclaimed EP release and live performance opening slots for Coldplay, Kaleo and Alt-J, Briggs is one of 2017’s biggest breakout artists.  The GRAMMY Museum welcomes Bishop Briggs to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on her rising career and performance, during which she’ll debut a brand-new song. The evening will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.
