With a voice full of grit and heft, Bishop Briggs has been compared to strong female vocalists like Janis Joplin, Florence Welch, Aretha Franklin, and Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard.

Her songs – composed in bedrooms, and destined for festival tents and arenas – include the heartfelt singles, “River” and “Wild Horses,” as heard on her 2017 self-titled debut EP. Church of Scars, featuring Bishop’s latest single, “White Flag,” came out this spring.

Singing her first song in public at the age of 4 – in a Tokyo karaoke bar, no less – and writing her first song at 7, Bishop has undeniably had a lifetime commitment to music. Getting her start playing in any venue that would have her, Bishop is now a fine-tuned performer, playing in much larger venues for much larger audiences.

Opening for Bishop is the sleek-toned indie pop group, lovelytheband. The Los Angeles trio debuted in July 2017 with the single "Broken," which quickly racked up more than 3 million streams on Spotify and is currently #1 on the Billboard alternative chart.

Led by former Oh Honey member Mitchy Collins, along with guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price, the band formed in West Hollywood in late 2016. lovelytheband released their debut EP, "everything i could never say...," last September.
