You might recognize the name Bishop Briggs from the popular songs “River” or “Wild Horses,” or you might recognize her famous space bun hairstyle.
If you don’t recognize her name, you will soon. Unavoidable talent, Briggs has a unique voice that speaks volumes and a stage presence that takes the term “performing” to another level.
Sarah Grace McLaughlin, known by her stage name Bishop Briggs, just released her debut album Church of Scars in April, but some songs like the two aforementioned were released as long as two years ago. The album is engulfed in blues-infected alternative pop music that not so subtly reminds one of the late ‘90s music scene.
She performed at Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio last weekend and I got a chance to talk with her about Church of Scars and what advice she has for aspiring songwriters and musicians.
