Briggs is known for her wide-ranging musical style blending folk, pop and electronic music into a unique sound. Her debut track “Wild Horses” reached #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart and #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 charts.

She followed up with the RIAA-certified gold single, “River,” which also was placed in TV ads and had success.
Her video for the song “Dream” can be seen here:
