“With CLIFFDIVER, it’s just so close to my heart because I grew up listening to this music,” says Briana Wright of her new collaboration with the Tulsa pop rockers. “This was one of the first styles of music that I loved and knew everything about. I was an emo kid in the late ’90s.”
Thirty-one-year-old Wright, lead singer for popular indie-soul group Nightingale, had the chance to explore her “angsty” side late last year when she contributed vocals to CLIFFDIVER’s music. What started out as a cameo appearance has now turned into a regular gig.
Though Wright has no plans to leave Nightingale, she’s thrilled with this new musical opportunity.
“It’s one of those dreams come true. It’s really a dream situation that I never thought was possible,” she says. “I have these guys who were already established as a band when I came around. They didn’t need me, and they simply made a place for me and said, ‘We think you can do this,’ and now I am.”
