Briana Corrigan, is a fantastic International Singer Songwriter represented by AMA Music Agency.
Briana has just released her album Redbird with “13 Wonderful Songs” the first single released off the album.
Redbird is Briana’s second solo album: the first was “When My Arms Wrap You Round”, produced by Mike Hedges and released on East West Records 1996 to excellent reviews.
Briana previously from The Beautiful South. She was with the group as the lead female vocalist for six years. Throughout those six years the band released three albums and one UK Number 1 hit with “A Little Time” – a duet with Dave Hemingway. Briana has described this period as “drink and fun-fuelled years when she learned the craft of singing live and in the studio”.
“I learnt a great deal about songwriting from watching Paul [Heaton],” recalls Briana. “My fondest memories are of touring. Life on the road was exciting and tiring and sometimes intensely boring but it was fantastic to be singing every night and getting that feedback, the direct response to the work that you can only get from performing live.”
“In those days, there was a lot more separation between fans and artist than nowadays, so touring and getting to meet the people who were listening to our music was really great. One of my fondest memories was that, after the shows in some cities, there’d be a bunch of women and we’d sit in the dressing room chatting about strident feminism and the importance of women in art. It would be jokingly referred to by the rest of the band as ‘Briana’s women’s Group’. But how great to meet all these young women who felt inspired by the lyrics and the band and felt their position supported and expressed by us.”
Since Briana left The Beautiful South she has been writing music and poetry, and has performed as an actor both on stage and screen.
Her current Album Redbird is the OUT NOW.
