Julie Gribble is a fresh face on the Americana/Country scene. Newly moved to Nashville, she has found her voice…a unique, powerful, and honest tone with one of a kind lyrical storytelling all wrapped up with hints of bluegrass, traditional country, with her main base in Americana.

Julie grew up doing theater, then moved on to film and television. When she moved to LA she decided to see if her dream of being a singer/songwriter could be a reality. After only a few open mics, and a lot of time trying to figure out how to play her acoustic guitar by drawing the chords out on napkins, her first gig was offered to her. After that…she fell in love with music in a different way. Within a year she had recorded a record, was signed to a small label and was on her first tour. Eight years later, Gribbles resume has been packed full of national TV guest appearances, touring, festivals, being the face of certain brands, numerous TV/film licensing on major network shows, an endorsement with Martin Guitars, and a large supporting role in a Sony Pictures film. Best part about all of this? She did it all on her OWN! Gribble is proof that hard work generosity, and honesty do pay off!

Throughout this new found music career, Gribble has had the honor of opening up for such legends as Billy Joe Shaver and to perform her original tunes on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson 3 separate times as well as other numerous tv shows. It’s that ole Hollywood story….Julie was working every morning at a coffee shop in Los Angeles and he was her customer. Craig gave Julie a shot and named her a ‘friend’ of the show. Julie still books her own shows, answers every fan email, and yes, sometimes needs a nap along the way, but loves what she does! Gribble says,
‘It’s about this amazing journey I’m able to be a part of. The music, fans, & laughter that happen along the way is the best part and I’m reminded everyday how blessed I am to be able to share my heart through music and hopefully touch a soul or two along the way!”

 

Alexis Vear is a singer/Songwriter/ Multi-Talented artist who is inspired by the images she sees in her mind, and in realities of everyday life. From the time Alexis can remember, images have passed through her. Alexis has always felt a deep calling to share these images in different ways.

Around the time Alexis turned thirty two, she started sharing her music, and released her first EP “Let It Go”and with in a year found herself being aired on NPR. In 2008, She released her second EP “Let It Go” After taking a long hiatus from Visual Arts to focus on her Music, Alexis has come full circle and now is fulfilling a calling to share these images through song and many different expressions of art.

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?
