Tim McNary started writing songs during the 2 years he spent volunteering and backpacking in South America after college. During the past 5 years, Tim has performed hundreds of shows around the Southeast and shared the stage with The Civil Wars and Griffin House, among many others. He has been compared to Ryan Adams, Ben Howard, Ryan Bingham, and Damien Rice.
He has been featured in the New & Notable section of the popular singer-songwriter web site Noisetrade, received air time on Lightning 100 in Nashville, and was Runner-Up at the well-regarded Eddie’s Attic Bi-Annual Shoot-Out held in November, 2014. He will be releasing his 3rd EP, Above The Trees, on March 4th, 2016.
Combining thoughtful songwriting, dynamic stage performance, and unrivaled guitar virtuosity, Paul Warner has emerged as one of Atlanta's most respected native sons. At first listen, there is a spacey familiarity to his songs, leaving the listener entranced in the haunting melodies and howling solos. But after experiencing the range of songs & textures, there is no doubt the sound is completely original.
In his short time in the business, Paul Warner has shared the stage with several diverse national acts including: The Blind Boys of Alabama, Collective Soul, Manchester Orchestra, Jimmy Gnecco (of Ours), Sonia Leigh, Rehab, and Wild Sweet Orange. In 2007, he won Creative Loafing's "Bandzilla" contest, beating out nearly 100 other bands in the process. His songs have also been featured on top Atlanta radio stations 99x and Dave FM as well as AM1690 The Voice of The Arts.
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!
