If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that one of my absolute favorite musical artists is Bishop Briggs! I have some wonderful and supportive friends who were willing to road trip with me to New York to see her at a record store, Rough Trade on Tuesday, March 27. Yes, this was my seventh time seeing her in person and my fourth time hugging this amazing human being, and I have NO REGRETS.
Seriously though you guys, she has an absolutely AMAZING voice that you need to check out. Her official debut album comes out TODAY,April 20, but most of the songs are already on Spotify/iTunes from her EP and single releases.
If you love her, or are interested, she is also going to be the “mentor” on American Idol tonight (April 9), where she will be performing two duets!
The Set List
The set was completely acoustic, which I was super excited about because I’ve only seen special “stripped down” ones live! (I may be missing a song, and know that Way I Do and Wild Horses are also amazing acoustic! Most of these can be purchased or listened to in their acoustic format on the usual sites.)
- White Flag
- Never Tear Us Apart
The Meet and Greet:
As I said previously, I’ve met Bishop Briggs/Sarah many times before, but she remains such a genuine and lovely person. Despite her amazing talent, she remains so humble and real. I always get super tongue-tied and have a huge smile like an idiot. I was able to get a signed poster to add to my collection, and this marvelous photograph (of Bishop, not of me with my worn down minimal makeup look)!
If you haven’t heard of her before, definitely go check out Bishop Briggs! Her music is described as “soul mixed with trap music,” but anyone who appreciates a good beat and angelic voice will enjoy it. Here are some links:
