Before Bishop Briggs made it big with the release of her 2018 debut album Church of Scars, the biggest moment in her career was teaming up with Cold War Kids on their 2017 collaboration "All Tied Up." Over the weekend, the singer-songwriter shared a throwback clip of herself and the band's singer Nathan Willett tracking vocals in the studio, where she revealed how much she geeked out over working with the indie rockers.
"Right after this I exhaled and turned to the entire room and said, 'NOW THAT WE ARE FINISHED I CAN TELL YOU I’M THE BIGGEST FAN & WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO LA MY SISTER & I WOULD GO TO MULHOLLAND DRIVE LISTENING TO YOU NON STOP & SO THIS IS A HUGE MOMENT FOR ME 😫🥺😭😤🤩'" she captioned the video, "@coldwarkids were like 😳"

Briggs has been taking her time in quarantine to reflect on the past. A couple weeks ago she penned a poignant message to her younger self.
"I wish I could tell my younger self...that being in a toxic work environment while your dreams are coming true is confusing, isolating and difficult," she wrote alongside an emotional video of her dark younger years spliced with some happy highlights. "BUT leaving will only make room for kind, talented, respectful people and experiences. It will restore your faith in humanity and music. And after it all you’ll be able to tell people how they are worthy at every show you play and that it gets better."
The adversity Briggs is referring to is the verbal abuse she endured from her former producers, Mark Jackson and Ian Brendon Scott.
