Born in Nashville, Tennessee and raised in Mississippi, artist/songwriter, Brieanna James, is no ordinary girl. Her parents, noticed early on that she was a natural performer and was born into the world with music in her heart.
Growing up in the south, she was influenced by country music and loved watching “Hanna Montana” and listening to Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. Both Miley and Taylor inspired her to want to act and sing at a very young age. With the full support of her family, Brieanna’s parents relocated to Los Angeles in 2008 when an agent asked her mother to bring her in for meeting upon seeing her headshot from a mutual associate. Once signed, she immedi- ately started booking commercials and it wasn’t long before she booked national commer- cials for Puppy In My Pocket, Hasbro, Stride Right and a dozen others. The intended 3-month visit to LA turned into seven years and counting. While she enjoyed acting, she decided to turn her focus back to her first love – music.
Now at 16 years old, Brieanna’s musical talent has blossomed, turning her into a talented and driven artist and songwriter. With the continued love and support of her family and guidance from her management team, she has written with top songwriters such as Keith Follese, Kelsea Ballerini, Steve Diamond, Tiffany Vartanyan, Deanna Walker, Richard Harris, Dan Nelson, Rachel Farley, Brandon Rogers, Nate and Kaelie Highfield and many others.
Still citing Taylor Swift as her greatest musical inspiration, she has added Avril Lavigne, Sam Hunt, Keith Urban and Kelsea Ballerini to the list of artists that influence her and her songwriting.
Over the last year, she has developed her own style of edgy, heartfelt country pop and as an artist, she describes herself as a driven, daring, fun, flirty and has a great love for the songwriting process. She is excited to share her music with the world and capture hearts and fans on a journey that is only beginning.
