Singer-songwriter Briana Cash has a special affinity for Boston’s North End – her grandmother being born in Rome and her grandfather’s strong Neapolitan roots seem to “sing” when this classically-trained 1st soprano performs Italian classics.
Briana moves easily across several different music genres. She sings hit Italian favorites by Mina, Mariella Nava, Giorgia Todrani, and Eros Ramazzotti – to name several – as well as pop American tunes, and of course her own unique original songs. No matter what genre she performs, Briana Cash delivers the voice of an angel – oftentimes sweet and enthralling, but at other times, hard-edged, and angry – as she taps out the cadence on the strings of her guitar.
LISTEN TO: Il Cielo in Una Stanza
In June 2008, Briana released her first CD album, “All I Want” – a collection of strong pop-acoustic influences with a jazzy, intimate vibe. The album has received considerable acclaim, impressive airplay around Boston and on college radio, and is available online at iTunes, CDbaby and Amazon.com.
“Take a Walk with Me” – one of the favorites on this debut album – has also made a persuasive contribution beyond the world of music. A strong advocate and supporter of womens’ health and education charities, Briana has recorded three Public Service Announcements for “Susan G. Komen for the Cure”, the global leader of the breast cancer movement. She donated her award-winning song, “Take a Walk with Me” to the global organization.
In October 2009, Briana performed at Boston’s Hard Rock Café benefit concert, Pinktober Celebration, “Take a Walk with Me – Susan G. Komen Benefit Concert”, where she autographed a pink guitar donated by First Act Guitars as part of a benefit raffle.
In addition, Briana has been representing The River-92.5 FM radio for many events including “The City of Lights Parade” in Lowell, “The Going Green Expo” at the Bayside Expo Center and “The Down to Earth Expo” at the Hynes Convention Center. She was one of the top 10 finalists selected in 92.5 FM’s “The River Rising Star Contest.”
A 2004 graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, she received Berklee’s “BEST” Scholarship and performed at The Berklee Performance Center Women’s Show (2002) with an original song she wrote, selected from several hundred submissions.
Briana enjoys working with other artists and has been writing music for boy bands. She is currently working on new material for her forthcoming album as well as some upcoming singles and projects slated for release in 2011.
