She considers Anne Wilson (Heart), Sia, Celine Dion, Amy Winehouse, Idina Menzel & Etta James to be her greatest vocal influences to name a few.

MUSIC


She released an EP "Bri" in October 2017 and is currently in the studio recording new material set to be released early 2019. "The new material I'm working on is a fusion of soundtrack-style production and soulful vocals. It focuses on storytelling and creating a deep, visceral ambiance."
