One to watch, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Briskin is gathering co-signs as his dreamy Londoner vocal and candid songwriting on Gen Z life continue to impress punters and critics alike, with accolades including The Line Of Best Fit ‘On The Rise’, Clash ‘Next Wave’, Hunger TV dubbing him a ‘low-key R&B prodigy’, Notion declaring that he’s ‘[A] name that everyone should know’. 

Of his summer 2023 EP The Circus, Clash magazine says: “The EP is a bold display of 360 creativity, moving from lucid electronic pop to the more sombre songwriting of acoustic-driven”, while Totalntertainment adds: “If [Forever Was A Feeling] marked a full stop at the end of his teenage apprenticeship, then ‘The Circus’ is him fully setting out for himself, producing more and defining his musical direction.” 

The aforementioned Forever Was A Feeling mixtape, is produced by former Klaxons frontman Jamie Reynolds, single ‘Cash Cow’ is co-created by Eg White (Adele, Duffy, Will Young), Matt Zara (Greta Isaac, Jason Derulo, Julia Michaels) and Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine, Swim Deep, Tom Grennan) and briskin’s collab list continues as he’s been honing his craft with Digital Farm Animals, Master Peace, Lancey Foux and A1 x J1.

And he’s been working on the live side, too – his first UK tour supporting Tom Grennan included 10k-capacity Alexandra Palace, Nessa Barrett’s European tour and his first-ever headline show. With all this in his armour, we’re looking forward to sharing what’s next from this rising star.


briskin says: 

“The new music is the sound of me going: ‘F*ck it, I’m 20 years old, why am I not having fun?’ I feel now as if I’ve figured some things out. I feel like I’ve really come into my own.”
