Bishop Briggs is a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter of dark pop. 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. (The moniker itself was in turn adopted to avoid confusion with a celebrity who shares her real name, yet to be revealed.) 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 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. ~ Marcy Donelson
