I got an email from James W. the other day with a great link to an acting
agency's web site which offers short downloads of voice clips of their clients.
Wouldn't know that Briana Corrigan was on the list? Click on this link
http://www.lisarichards.ie/vactor_579.html to listen to a clip of what they
describe as "Warm Northern Irish accent with light tones". She sounds good
to me! Thanks for the great find James.

This site is reborn after being dead for almost 2 years! It was by some miracle that I ran across an old zip disc that I had been
carrying around since I graduated from College. On this disc I found a
number of files (most of which would only be of interest to myself) but I did find something
worthwhile on that disc: this entire web page. I can't
believe it's been over 4 years since I made this web site dedicated to Briana
Corrigan. Since I haven't had time to redo any of it, I'm posting it up
exactly as it was 4 years ago. The news is old, the links don't work
anymore and Briana has stayed so far out of the public spotlight that no one
knows what she is up to these days. Last I heard she had taken to the
stage to do some acting in various small plays and had gotten married. I
wish you the best Briana. And thanks to everyone for stopping by. If
you've got something to add about the lovely and talented Briana, please send me
an email. Thanks.
November 24th 1999
It's the day before Thanksgiving
and I've been up to more mischief on the internet.
I have made a few MP3's and Real Audio clips of some of the B-sides from
her first single 'Love Me Now'. There are two downloads for
each song. One is encoded in Real Audio and the other in MP3.
They both should take the same time to download, but you can decide which
one sounds better. If you like Real Audio better or MP3. These
are alomst CD quality. To keep from infringing on copyright laws,
they can't be perfect, but I think you'll be quite pleased with the sound.
You'll need a Media Player to play these songs. At www.real.com
you can get the RealJukebox which plays both RA and MP3s. This player is
absolutley free. You may already have Microsoft's Player on your
computer which should play the MP3's just fine. So with out any further
adeu, here is the link to the all brand new Music
Page. (Page still under construction, beware.)

I am repenting of my terrible sin
for not keeping up this page, so I actually DID something new, I made this
web page about 10 times faster (for all you 56K modem people out there).
I finally compressed all the pictures and graphics down to about 1/5th
their original size. I am so sorry for some of you having to download
222K files! That must have been torture. Anyway, those files
are now about 40K, so everything should come up faster. Some files
are even 10 times smaller than they used to be and I used a progressive
encoding so the pictures should come in blurry at first and then clear
up nicely and look normal. I could have made the pictures even smaller,
but this was the best I could do without compromising the appearance of
the pictures. And Briana is definitely not one to be making compromises
with, she deserves the very best! Also Rich has been playing the
guitar again and figured out another song for us all. The
Leave Taking chords are right here. So enjoy. =) Let
me know if everything really is faster and what you think.
September 1st 1999
The new news is...that there is
no new news. I am so terribly sorry for not being able to keep
up this web page. I was pretty much gone from the computer for the
entire summer. I was hoping to receive through fans information on
the where-a-bouts of Briana but it appears that many of you are in the
dark just as much as I am. I thank all of you for coming and checking
out the site and for those of you who have diligently signed the guestbook.
I have read all of your comments and am very glad so many of us still hang
onto the Briana Legend that she created from once having been a member
of The Beautiful South. I'll keep the web page up for as long as
they allow me, but as far as modifications and changes go, I'm afraid there
will be none. I have one last year of school to go and then that's
it for me. If any other news does happen to cross my path, this is
will the first place it gets posted. So take care and good luck to
March 26th 1999
page is up and running!! I've got a lot of great help from Rich in
York, England. Thanks again Rickaa! So far there are a total
of four songs for your guitar-playing enjoyment. More will
be coming soon. So stay tuned....No news about Briana's new album,
but I know she is currently working on something, I just don't know exactly
or when it will be coming out for the rest of us to get our hands
on. All I can say is....stay posted!!
March 4th 1999
Coming soon! Real Audio clips
of Briana's solo stuff. If you have yet to hear her album or the
singles, then stay tuned....you'll like it. Also I went web browsing for a
Guestbook today and just happened to find one. It's pretty cool,
so go ahead and sign it! And thanks to all those who already have. Plus I've been strumming the ol'
guitar a bit and figured out a few of tunes from the album. I'm not
a musical genius, but I do like to play the guitar, and if the song is
simple enough, I can figure out the chords. There is some serious
rad guitar playing on her album, (better than I can play) but I would love
to learn them especially The
Man is Dead. I love that song! So give me some time and
I'll put up what I can as soon as I can. Also I am working on a links page.
So if you would like to be linked to this page email

This one was news to me.
Briana also sang harmonies on a CD called Palace Songs created by Will
Oldham. The label is Drag City and the name of the album is Hope.
Apparently it's some sort of single or EP because it contains only 6 songs.
I don't have this CD but I am interested in hearing it. If anyone
has it, write me and let me know what you think. In the meantime,
here to find out more about Palace Songs. If you click on Briana
Corrigan it will take you to a site where you can rate her album.
It's kinda cool! If you want to buy this cd, CDNOW
has it for only $9.49. Click
here to go straight to it. You can read the reviews about it
too. I just might have to go buy it myself! =)

I just found this little bit of
information from Delores
and the Turtle.
