Bishop Briggs Is Reborn

On one hand, scorpions are considered a harbinger of death, sex and transformation; a sting powerful enough to kill a human being within minutes and a mating ritual that results in the male’s death but the beginning of a new generation. At same time, the scorpion is also a devoted and protective mother, which makes them influential symbols of female power, maternal love and rebirth, meaning a pregnant Bishop Briggs and I immediately start talking about her star sign, the baby’s due date and, of course, the giant scorpion tattoo covering her entire left shin.

Bishop Briggs Is Our Next Music Director

“I’ve missed performing so much,” says indie-pop singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs. “There is something that lights up in my spirit and soul when I get to be on stage. Briggs wrapped up the tour behind her second studio album, Champion, at the end of 2019, right before the pandemic hit. Ahead of her first show back—she’ll be supporting Dermot Kennedy at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater on August 5—she curated a playlist around this issue’s theme of performance. “There were a few things that came to mind when diving into the concept—the visual aspect, how it makes you feel, vocal performance, and escapism,” Briggs explains. “This playlist is a mix of all of those elements.” Kicking it off is one of Briggs’s own songs, a soulful breakup ballad called “I Still Love You.” Also making the cut: “I Will Always Love You,” by Dolly Parton, one of her “number-one songwriting inspirations,” along with “Lost,” by Frank Ocean, whose music makes Briggs “think deeper and feel deeper,” and “Good News,” by Mac Miller. “He brings an energy you can’t deny to his songs,” she says of the late rapper. “He’s a very special artist I wish I could’ve collaborated with.”
