A voice with a warm and silky timbre, lyrics that ooze honesty and contemplation and melodies that weave beautiful threads, Briana Cowlishaw is a Sydney raised vocalist and composer who has accomplished a large amount in her tender 24 years of age. Inspiration ranging from Nancy Wilson, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Ellis Regina, Fiona Apple, Ahmad Jamal and James Taylor, Briana’s approach to singing and composition is quite an intriguing one. Her unique creativity and ability as a performer, improviser and composer continues to cultivate new opportunities for the young vocalist and is paving a very exciting path for her career both in Australia and on an international front.

Briana graduated from the Australian Institute of Music (BMUS) in 2008 and was awarded an ‘Artstart’ grant by the Australia Council of the Arts in 2010 to establish her music career. She jumped on a plane to New York and recorded her debut album of original compositions ‘When Fiction Comes to Life’ with renowned New York musicians Aaron Goldberg, Reuben Rogers, Gregory Hutchinson, Ambrose Akinmusire and Mike Moreno. Released in Australia May 2011, the album recently received a nomination for ‘Best Vocal Jazz Album’ in the 2012 Australian Jazz Bell Awards.
