The Bishops are an Austin-based trio consisting of vocalist Cara Bishop
, producer Troy Bishop
, and rapper Luv Bishop
. These siblings are bringing a new wavy sound to music, pushing the boundaries of any genre. The Bishops’ unique blend of styles consists of influences from electronic, hip-hop, jazz, RnB and pop music, creating a sound that is bound to bring together a diverse crowd.
Troy started producing music at the age of 12, after older brother Chris downloaded a production software demo and encouraged him to learn how to make music. Little did the two brothers know, their music career was about to drastically change when their little sister Cara revealed that she could sing. The three immediately began working together, creating a catalogue of unreleased music influenced by hip-hop artists such as Kanye West, 9th Wonder and J Dilla and electronic music producers, Flume and Sam Gelliatry.
In late 2014, Troy and Cara released Cara’s debut single, “Voices” that signaled progress in the group’s career. For the last two years, the trio has consistently worked on their art as a family while also working on solo projects, releasing tracks such as Luv’s “My Element” and Troy’s “Glory,” that was later used for one of Cara’s collaborations.
It wasn’t until late 2015 that the siblings decided to premiere their music with the release of their single “Blood Ring,” a track that truly embraces their family dynamic and unique sounds. The Bishops are currently working on their first EP that is to be released later this year.
"Blood Ring" is now available on Soundcloud, iTunes, and Spotify.
“…be prepared to fall deep into a hole of binge-listening
your new favorite ATX hip-hop group, like the one we still
haven’t crawled out of yet.”
