About Julie Gribble
I started making music while living in Los Angeles. Pursuing acting all my life had been amazing but I needed a break. This ‘break’ led to pickin’ up that dusty guitar and spending hours a day just trying to figure it out. I’m not a chick who can be told I can’t do something so after a few open mics I got offered my first gig. This gig led to the next year; I made my first record, got signed on with a small label, did my first tour and worked long hours at a coffee shop to pay the bills.
I went off on my own and started booking tours around the US. I was given the opportunity to perform on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Tyra Banks Show. I made my second record during this time, too.
So here we are, a few years later and I just can’t bear the thought of giving up. Moved back to the east coast, had supporting roles in the movies Quarantine 2: Terminal and Ride Along, performed for a third time on The Late Late Show and finished my sixth record, Crimson Sky. I realized finally that if I’m not playing music I’m just not happy. Meeting people all around the country, hearing their stories, sharing a moment in their journey and mine is what drives me.
The people that surround me are crazy in the best way, like me. Yes we are opinionated but that’s because we stand firm in our beliefs that great music comes from the heart, not a formula. I’m told all the time that my music is ‘outside the box.’ Ya know what? I like it that way… ‘cause in the end I’ll know I gave this dream a damn good shot with integrity and passion. I say ‘cheers’ to a good dream, a shot of whiskey, some laughs and a hell of a lot of hard work!
