"Flawless, soulful voice" (PennLive)... "Folksy, Americana sound...raw voice...mindful of every note and riff" (The Spectator).  "A promising young songstress" (PledgeMusic).

With two pianists for parents, Bri has been making music since before she can remember. She started playing violin when she was four years old, and since then picked up piano, mandolin, guitar, French horn, and a little bit of banjo. Bri was born and raised in northwestern Wisconsin, but she has strong roots in Tennessee. She spent her childhood summers eating okra and sweet corn in the Tennessee countryside. Many of her favorite family stories center around Uncle Jimmy, who owned The Uptown Club nightclub in the notorious original Printer’s Alley.

Bri moved to Nashville in 2011 and has since shared the stage with artists from Chris Stapleton to Tanya Tucker, and has toured all over the U.S., Canada, and Japan as a fiddle player and background vocalist for other artists. She took a break from the road in late 2015 to pursue her solo career and released her debut record, "Throw Down My Heart," produced by Eli Beaird, in October 2016.


Finding herself as a solo artist has been a healing process that has allowed her to blossom as a young songwriter and artist in Nashville. The title track from her EP, "Throw Down My Heart," was chosen as a semifinalist in the 2016 International Songwriter Competition.

Since "Throw Down My Heart," Bri has recorded a full-length record, taking the role of co-producer alongside Evan Middlesworth (sound engineer, The National). The record has a focused, acoustic sound, featuring her fiddle playing, as well as Ben Lester (S. Carey) on pedal steel, Dave Power (The Staves) on drums, Robbie Weisshaar on bass, and her dad on keys. "Things We'd Rather Not Say" is set for release in 2018.
