Biography

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 unique blend of Americana and country music styles, Gribble has enthralled audiences with her modern stories of life, love and relationships. Audiences connect immediately to the unique lyrics. 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 successfully toured most the US and Canada, opened for John Mayer, become the face of Hotel Indigo's Featured Artist campaign, and been asked to perform on many national television and radio shows around the country.

With her recent endorsement by Martin Guitars, Julie is armed and ready for her fourth record to be released in spring of 2009, followed by another performance on The Late Late Show and a global tour to follow. Gribble’s music has been featured on the Lifetime movie, “Dive at Clauson’s Pier,” popular Nickelodeon shows “Zoey 101,” “Drake and Josh” and their TV movie “Drake & Josh Go to Hollywood,” as well on "South of Nowhere" on Noggin. Guest TV 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 her deals with Muzak and TruSonic.

Traveling solo to promote her current album, Gribble is touring the US. Julie has recently performed at events for Barefoot Wine, Hotel Indigo, various clubs, and charity events with organizations such as Boys and Girls Club, Ape Action, Red Fern Farms, Watering Seeds, Atlanta Humane Society, and PAWS. 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.

Lyrics

Little Bit Lonely

Written By: Julie Gribble/Dan Lavery

So I'm on the telephone just the other night. It's 2am and noone's around but me, just me. I started figuring out just where it was, that my happiness went to, cause it left me.
And it's a little bit lonely,it's a little bit lonely, under the weather. It's a little bit lonely. Wish I could find the storm to tell you about, it's a little bit lonely.
I got just enough to get me high. Just let me breathe another more. Are you still there cause it's quiet here, inside my head and all these memories. They keep stealing me inside. And I admit to you tonight, that I'm afraid of alot of things. So many I'm sorry's, I could write love songs. But I like being alone right now.
And it's a little bit lonely. It's a little bit lonely, under the weather. It's a little bit lonely, wish I could find the storm to tell you about. It's a little bit lonely.
There's alot more that I, that I couldn't say. I just wouldn't bother your, your precious time with. Cause I'd rather you, you think I'm alright here. Some lonesome warrior and it's just all of me.
You've hung up by now, my tired stories. Honey I'm, I'm tired of them too.
Cause it's a little bit lonely. It's a little bit lonely, under the weather. It's a little bit lonely, wish I could find the storm to tell you about. It's a little bit lonely.
I'm a little bit...

The Old Way

Written By: Julie Gribble/Dan Lavery

don't you find the thrill
everytime you brush my hair aside
is there any word i can say
do you ever miss
the way we held the world aside
is there ever time in your day
to sit and smile

chorus:
maybe i missed you too much on our off days
maybe i wished too many times we'd be forever
maybe i never wanted to see this love end
just love me the old way
just love me the old way

we find the days growin
so much quieter
wonderin where the
laughter'd gone
maybe there's a point
where we both gave in
we let all the worryin
get the best of us

chorus:
maybe i missed you too much on our off days
maybe i wished too many times we'd be forever
maybe i never wanted to see this love end
just love me the old way
just love me the old way

bridge
oh, and all the times we spent
just trying to get back
to where this love began

chorus:
maybe i missed you too much on our off days
maybe i wished too many times we'd be forever
maybe i never wanted to see this love end
just love me the old way
just love me the old way

Echoes in my Head

Written By: Julie Gribble

left you on a plane last thursday morning
flight 218 outbound 10am
leavin for a place i never called home
maybe it's a good time to be alone

chorus
maybe if i break away from these echoes in my head
maybe if i feel again the way i did in your bed
i could be the woman that you wanted

flew back to you last sunday morning
i waited outside near half an hour
i left my smile there on the pavement
while you drove up smellin of where you'd been

chorus
maybe if i break away from these echoes in my head
maybe if i feel again the way i did in your bed
i could be the woman that you wanted

Bridge
i've been careful
you're a rocky ride
but i've stayed close and true
to you

Chorus
maybe if i break away from these echoes in my head
maybe if i feel again the way i did in your bed
i could be the woman that you wanted

maybe i'm not your best kept secret
or even the thrill in your favorite day
maybe you're not the man i thought you'd be
i just thought that you wanted better
