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 her Traditional 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!".
Summer of 2012 will be armed with her latest release, 'The Next Time' and a nationwide tour.
A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Gribble was born with an infectious personality. Her younger years were spent on the stage as an actress which lead to her current film and tv career. She grew up writing poetry, which eventually led to song writing. She had always wanted to find a way to share her stories, and through hours of watching artists play guitar, drawing the chords on bar napkins and practice, her dreams became a reality. After a few open mics in LA she was offered her first gig and after that within a year released her first record, "Back Inside of Me." Through her own means and persistence, Gribble has managed to tour the US and Canada, open for major label artists, 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 numerous radio spots.
With her recent endorsement through Martin Guitars, Julie has been touring supporting her newest release, "Letting Go." This is followed by her recent appearance in October, 2010 on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. After wrapping up her supporting role in the recently released Sony Pictures Film, Quarantine 2, she also was a songwriting teacher and performer on Seth Green's new webshow, ControlTV. Before her recent move to Nashville,TN, she managed to gain a full page interview in Atlanta's Finest Mag, a finalist in GA Lottery's All Access Music Competition, and is nominated for a GA Country Music Award.
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, The Ringer, CW Now, Housebroken starring Danny DeVito, and Sony Pictures film, Quarantine 2.

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.
