It just comes naturally for Julie Gribble, writing, singing, and performing. But what she loves most is to inspire, to reach people with her music. With herTraditional Americana/Country Music, Gribble has entranced audiences with her modern stories of life, love and relationships. When you think about the edge of an artist like Lucinda Williams, the melodies of Allison Krauss, and a likeness to Natalie Merchant, you'll find Julie. Audiences connect immediately to the unique lyrics because they’re not the same old love clichés. As Craig Ferguson said, on his show about her record, So Typical, "It's Fantastic!"
A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Gribble was born with an infectious personality. Music gives her the means to express it. She grew up writing poetry, which eventually led to song writing. After only a dozen guitar lessons, she combined the two. It became her purpose. Through her own means and persistence, Gribble has managed to tour the US and Canada, open for John Mayer, become the face of Hotel Indigo's Featured Artist, and be asked to perform on many national television shows around the country as well as radio spots.
With her recent endorsement through Martin Guitars, Julie is armed and ready for her fourth record to be released in summer of 2010, followed by another performance on The Late Late Show and tour to follow. Gribble’s music has been featured on Lifetime movie “Dive at Clauson’s Pier,” popular Nickelodeon shows “Zoey 101,” “Drake and Josh” and their TV movie “Drake & Josh Go to Hollywood,” "South of Nowhere" on Noggin, "Smallville," "CW Now," and the movie "Housebroken" starring Danny DeVito. Guest appearances include, 2005-The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson(CBS), The Tyra Banks Show(CBS),Queer Edge w/Jack E.Jett(QTN), 2006-Low Country Live(ABC),Your LA(NBC), 2007- The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson(CBS), Your LA(NBC), Good Day Atlanta(FOX5). She received the 2005 LA Music Award for Best Adult Alternative Artist and nominated for Best Female Artist in 2007, has been featured in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 unsigned bands for both 2005 and 2006, as well as the Top 25 demo critiques,2006. Julie's music can be heard at grocery and retail stores around the country through Muzak and TruSonic.
More important than the thrill of an audience, she jumps at the opportunity to support a good cause. Julie’s always there, with her guitar in hand and a smile on her face. It’s not about her name in lights, it’s about telling her stories and touching those along the way. And people want to listen.
“She was great, and I'm sure that a lot of us would have taken the rest of the afternoon to kick-back so that we could be mesmerized by her music,” Mike Zendan, Vice President and General Counsel, Muzak, LLC said after she performed at the Corporate Headquarters.
Julie has hosted and performed at numerous open mics in the Atlanta Area.
