God or Julie. What goes into coming up with a band name? Everything and nothing. Do you write songs about God? “No” says vocalist/guitarist JP Johnson. Do you write songs about Julie? “No” says bassist Adam Johnson. “But we have a friend who does. All his songs are either about God or his wife Julie.” Guitarist Aaron Johnson adds, “Our songs are about everything in between.”

Formed in Denver, CO., JP (21) and his brother Adam (23) started a local blues band. After playing in the clubs for a bit, they witnessed a live performance by an unnamed national rock act and knew it was time for them to make a change. Adam explains “We were walking in circles in our parents kitchen. We had all this nervous energy.” Wanting to move forward, it wasn’t long before the two brothers called their cousin Aaron to join on guitar.

After outgrowing the Colorado music scene, JP, Adam, and their cousin Aaron (25) moved to Brooklyn, NY. Chad Royce (26) entered the band as the new drummer, and they quickly began packing rock venues like the Knitting Factory and CBGB’s. Those gigs lead to many others, which was their start to building a steady fan base in NY.

Their release of their first album Radio 7, garnered praise for its professional execution and infectious melodies. Village Voice declared that God or Julie “could kick the Foo Fighters butt!” And the album track “Maid of Honor” was downloaded over 42,274 times on MP3.com and nominated for BEST COLLEGE ROCK SONG by Just Plain Folks Music Awards.

This summer (2004) God or Julie worked at The Hit Factory (NY) on their upcoming release What Doesn’t Kill You (Trashbox 2004). This album is produced and engineered by Jim Ebert (Marvelous 3, SR-71, Everclear) and mixed by Brian Malouf (Pearl Jam, LIT, EVE 6, MJ).

Now God or Julie’s holds its own as one of the best and brightest new bands in America.
