According to her homepage, Daisy Briggs grew up with 14 dogs, 14 cats, a pig, a goat, a pony, donkey, rabbits, chicken and a peacock. While she was surrounded by rescued pets and farm animals at her home, she is nowadays based in Nashville, pursuing a singer-songwriter career. On 12th May 2023, Briggs released her debut EP Nice Knowing You. I had a listen.

Daisy Briggs – Nice Knowing You – Track by Track
The six track EP lasts 18 minutes
1. 1 To Just Friends
If you look at Spotify streams only, Daisy Briggs opens the EP with her most successful single feature of this release so far. The song has a juvenile feeling with a pop rhythm and country music vibes. The topic? Typical love struggle… Nice listen, though.
I wanna know where I stand
I am sick of being confused
Do all the girl in your phone
Get you the way that I do?
Difference is to me you’re a choice
But to you I’m just an option
You just cannot say that this EP is incepting with happy love moments. The struggle continues with Option – at least on the story side. The song is a really nice one, with a good pop energy and nice vibes. Daisy Briggs makes me smile.
3. I Don’t Hate U (My Mom Thinks Ur Trash)
Okay, the song title already tells you that there is some conflict behind this one as well. I did not know this single release beforehand – but I can state that Daisy Briggs makes me smile for 3:09 minutes with her third track. I Don’t Hate U (My Mom Thinks Ur Trash) is fresh, cheeky and also has a nice touch of country music. Even though the song rather does not sound like a song made from stories from 25 to now, as she states on her Insta page.
4. Lost You First
I probably would have lost myself, so I am glad I lost you first is the key phrase of this song. After four songs, you start praying that this beautiful young being will have happy love once in her life. On the other hand, she is writing good songs about these kind of things. Thus, sorry Daisy, I somehow enjoy it.
5. Your Biggest Regret
Your Biggest Regret is a bit slower and more gentle than the songs before. However, it does not yet spread any ballad vibes. The topic, of course: unhappy love, a poor character love. Nice melody, though.
6. Nice Knowing You
The title track is closing the EP. The song has been released as a single in parallel to the EP. The song is nicely driven by the strumming guitar, but overall is rather on the weak side to me.

Daisy Briggs – Nice Knowing You – My View
There is one thing which is worrying me most: are these love stories really the six key things happening to Daisy Briggs between the age of 25 and 27. The selection of topics is a bit too streamlined to me. Love stories are touching everybody – better don’t touch social or political topics or other kids of conflicts, they could offend someone. This kind of Nashville policy is bothering me – not only while listening to Nice Knowing You. Daisy Briggs is a really interesting artist and she released a promising EP. I just hope that next time she is presenting a wider range of stories.
