Briley was introduced to producer/composer Jacques Morali by Village People member Victor Willis.. He originally performed in jeans and a T-shirt, but he took the role of a soldier for the album Cruisin' in 1978 and when the group recorded "In the Navy" in 1979 he appeared as a sailor.
In 2005, Briley's brother Jonathan was identified by several people as The Falling Man – the figure depicted in the iconic photo of a man falling from the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks.
