Briana – Stringspace Jazz & Pop Singer:

Briana (jazz & pop singer):

Briana is a Sydney-based vocalist and composer whose itchy feet have led her to bounce back and forth between New York and Sydney over the past few years.

Briana graduated from the Australian Institute of Music (BMUS) and travelled to New York to record her original compositions ‘When Fiction Comes to Life’. Briana also jumped back on a plane to the big apple to record her pop-inspired second album ‘Paper Mache City’. Her album “When Fiction Comes to Life” was recently nominated for ‘Best Vocal Jazz Album’ in the Australian Jazz Bell Awards.

Briana’s inspiration ranges from The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple to Bach. Her unique creativity and outstanding ability as a performer, improviser, and composer are recognised through her ongoing career achievements.

Invited to perform with her band at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival supporting Katie Noonan. Briana was again invited back to the Wangaratta Jazz Festival to compete as 1 of 10 finalists in the National Jazz Awards for Voice.

“With influences ranging from Joni Mitchell and James Taylor to painters Rothko and Picasso, Cowlishaw’s new sound is bound to be a heady brew. “The Sydney Morning Herald.
