Bishop Briggs and the Church of Scars
Born in London to Scottish parents but raised in the Far East and growing to musical maturity in the USA, Bishop Briggs is the stage name of Sarah McLaughlin. The name refers to the Scottish town from which her parents hailed before their globe-trotting took their family to more exotic locations. Following that initial Tokyo baptism of fire, Bishop Briggs began writing songs at age seven. After the family moved to Hong Kong, she took part in talent shows while based at the International School there. On moving to Los Angeles to study at the Musicians' Institute, she started played local gigs. No venue was too small for this determined performer, who proved she was happy to sing for an audience of just three people! Her first single, Wild Horses, featured in an Acura advertisement and fans were able to access it via Shazam. The song was produced by Mark Jackson and Ian Scott, who helped launch the career of indie rockers Dorothy. Look out for Bishop Briggs tickets on StubHub.
Streams of success with River
Bishop Briggs scored a hit with her song, River. It rose to number one on Spotify's US Viral 50 thanks to multiple streaming. Before long, she began opening for bands such as Coldplay and Kaleo on tour. Her sound is described as dark electro pop with powerful vocals. Critics write of her "shades of trip-hop with acoustic guitar, electronic beats and a strong hint of soul and gospel". Her style has been likened to stars of the 1990s, such as Paula Cole and the Spice Girls, along with her more direct contemporaries; Adele, Rihanna, Sia and Alessia Cara. Bishop Briggs' first 'physical' release was a self-titled 12" vinyl EP, while Church of Scars was her debut album.
