From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Briana Corrigan (b. May 30th 1965) was the first female singer for The Beautiful South, from 1988 to 1994.

She was born in Ireland and was known for her quiet and intelligent personallity, and hot temper. Her family moved from Belfast to County Durham when she was eleven, but her love for the theatre made her move to Newcastle at eighteen, to take an acting course. There she began singing with The Anthill Runaways. Go! Discs Records, who were considering signing the band, gave her an offer, to travel to Hull and sing with Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway of The Beautiful South. Soon after she was asked to go to Milan with the band to help record their debut album Welcome to the Beautiful South. She appeared alongside Dave Hemingway on the band's only number 1 single "A Little Time".

She left the band when she disapproved of many of the lyrics Heaton had sent her for the fourth album, Miaow. In all, Corrigan featured on three albums (excluding the two greatest hits compilations).

After she left the band, she recorded her own solo album, When My Arms Wrap You Round, in 1996. The single, "Love Me Now", did not make the top 40, and the album itself never charted.

She moved to the West Country with her partner, but eventually moved to Ireland where she lives now.
