BIO

Briana Washington is a dynamic singer, keyboardist, arranger, producer, and songwriter born and raised in the Bay Area in California. She started her musical journey as a self-taught pianist at the age of 5 and started singing since she could talk. Her strong gospel roots developed and nurtured her musical talents, which prepared her to become the artist she is today. It has inspired her soulful, alternative R&B sound, and who she is as a performer, producer, and arranger. She cultivated her talents further as she began her studies in music at her middle/high school at Oakland School for the Arts in Oakland, California. Her experience at the arts school was the genesis of her journey as a composer and songwriter while also playing and performing in local jazz, r&b, funk, and fusion bands around the Bay Area. Some notable mentions include; performing in an opening band for a show where R&B singer Eric Benet headlined and performing at the “Fruitvale Station” movie premiere in Oakland, CA. She continued her musical studies after high school and received her Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, on a full-ride scholarship, as a piano major. While attending the college, she became immersed in the Boston and Berklee music scene, performing with artists like Greg Philinganes (from Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Toto etc.), Robert Glasper, Gloria Estefan, and Michael McDonald. She’s worked on television with the annual award show “Black Girls Rock” on BET network and more recently at Coachella Music Festival.
