18-year-old Brieanna James grew up in Mississippi, and was influenced by country music and loved watching Hanna Montana and listening to Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. Both Miley and Taylor inspired her to want to act and sing at a very young age. With the full support of her family, Brieanna’s parents relocated to Los Angeles in 2008 when an agent asked her mother to bring her in for a meeting upon seeing her head-shot from a mutual associate. Once signed, she immediately started booking national commercials for brands such as Puppy In My Pocket, Hasbro, Stride Right and a dozen others. The intended 3-month visit to LA turned into seven years and counting. Although she enjoyed acting, she decided to turn her focus back to her first love, music.
Brieanna will be performing at the Mitchell Opera House Saturday, May 5th, at 7:00 pm. Click here for ticket information.
