Originally from New York State, Julie Grower lives in Nashville, TN. Her contemporary folk, country and rootsy pop songs have earned her two Billboard certificates of achievement. Her debut CD "In A New Light", co-produced by Jon Gordon, who has served as musical director and guitarist for Suzanne Vega and Madonna, receives regular airplay on independent U.S. and European radio. Her song "Save The Drama For Your Mama" was released as a single by the CCMA-nominated group 'The Springs", and her song "Bakersfield", a tribute to the late Buck Owens, is mentioned in the upcoming biography of his life by Eileen Sisk. Julie has performed at The Bitter End, CBGB's Gallery, (NYC), The Kendall Café (Boston), and throughout the northeast and in the UK. In Nashville, Julie appears at such venues as The Bluebird Café, Hotel Indigo, and The Commodore Lounge, and has had the opportunity to share the bill with songwriters Tia Sillers ("I Hope You Dance"); Lisa Carver ("Wake Up Older") and Chris Wallin ("Speed", "I'm Tryin' ) and Walt Aldridge ("Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde"). Julie is represented by Washington Street Music, an independent song plugging and publishing company.
