It’s About the Journey…
Julie Gribble is a fresh face on the Americana/Country scene. Newly moved to Nashville, she has found her voice…a unique, powerful, and honest tone with one of a kind lyrical storytelling all wrapped up with hints of bluegrass, traditional country, with her main base in Americana.
Julie grew up doing theatre, then moved on to film and television. When she moved to LA she decided to see if her dream of being a singer/songwriter could be a reality. After only a few open mics, and alot of time trying to figure out how to play her acoustic guitar by drawing the chords out on napkins, her first gig was offered to her. After that…she fell in love with music in a different way. Within a year she had recorded a record, was signed to a small label and was on her first tour. Eight years later, Gribble’s resume has been packed full of national tv guest appearances, touring, festivals, being the face of certain brands, numerous tv/film licensing on major network shows, an endorsement with Martin Guitars, and a large supporting role in a Sony Pictures film. Best part about all of this? She did it all on her OWN! Gribble is proof that hard work, generosity, and honesty do pay off!
Throughout this newfound music career, Gribble has had the honor of opening up for such legends as Billy Joe Shaver and to perform her original tunes on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson 3 separate times as well as other numerous tv shows. It’s that ole Hollywood story….Julie was working every morning at a coffee shop in Los Angeles and he was her customer. Craig gave Julie a shot and named her a ‘friend’ of the show. Julie still books her own shows, answers every fan email, and yes, sometimes needs a nap along the way, but loves what she does! Gribble says, ‘It’s about this amazing journey I’m able to be a part of. The music, fans, & laughter that happen along the way is the best part and I’m reminded everyday how blessed I am to be able to share my heart through music and hopefully touch a soul or two along the way!”
