“While still in her teens Briana already has the talent, the knowledge and the skills that only come with experience in the music industry. This sets her apart from the rest of the next crop of aspiring singer songwriters and I have no doubt her star will shine bright in the future. ” - BRAD BUTCHER - GOLDEN GUITAR WINNER
“Her cowgirl twanging vocals are delivered with impeccable vocal control and I can see a "Carrie Underwood" like in the making, and I'm not even kidding!” - AFRICAN HYPE
“There is a lot of potential here. If she is this good at 17, I can only imagine how good she is going to be at 30. She is most definitely on her way. ” - TOTALLY BIASED FAN REVIEW
“The first thing that struck me about this young artist is her compositional maturity. Her way of composing music already has a unique and original style that makers her stand out from the crowd.” - EDGAR ALLEN POETS
Brisbane based artist Briana Dinsdale has already achieved at 18-years-old what some folks could only dream of in a lifetime. A firm favourite with key industry tastemakers, Briana's distinct and refreshing style of country has garnered support from the likes of the Country Music Association where she was recently announced by Tamworth's CMAA as the 2022 Keith Urban Scholarship Award Winner.
In August of 2022, Briana was welcomed into the Gibson family as an official Epiphone Ambassador.
Her debut single Ball and Chain (written by Briana Dinsdale) smashed opening targets all round, heading straight to number 15 in the Australian Independent Music Chart and charting on many independent charts around the world. It's clear that Briana is here to stay for the long run.
When she was freshly 17, Dinsdale released her debut album titled beginnings (produced by ARIA nominated Louise Wheatley) which contained co-writes with Australian country star Casey Barnes and Country Legend Bill Chambers, who also features on the corresponding track. In recognition of her debut album, Briana was awarded the silver award in the ISSA Young Adult Artist of the Year category for 2022.
Her live performances are also worth noting; feeling at home on stage since the age of eight, Briana has performed at the Gympie Music Muster, Tamworth Country Music Festival and on the Melting Sunsets line-up alongside Pete Murray, The Whitlams and more. Later in 2022, Briana and her band will be supporting Australian icon John Williamson at a private, invite-only, fundraising event.

Briana Dinsdale has received support from further afar with a steadily growing fanbase consistently following her next move. With only a handful of releases out including her brand new single Irresistible Force (written by Briana Dinsdale and Melody Moko), Dinsdale has been achieving undeniable feats, a reflection and credit to her multi-talented musical prowess and maturity.
