Israel Nash Gripka was born and raised amongst the sightly and unsightly scenes of the backdrop of the Midwest, where cattle outnumber people and dirt roads hug the country side. Watered daily with old school country and receiving the nutrient rays of rock 'n' roll, Gripka has developed roots strong enough to not only hold his own as a singer songwriter, but also strong enough to grab the listener by the foot and put them on the ground.

Beginning by fronting numerous band projects, Gripka has now embarked on his solo endeavors and in doing so has relocated to New York City. Gripka's solo debut, New York Town, serves up a portion of tasty Americana music that is backed up by a stellar band of swirling organs, quivering pedal steel strides, gospel infused harmonies, and well seasoned percussion. Taking lead is Gripka's commanding voice which sounds most like a rusted out steam train that is coming to either pick someone up or run them over.

Although stomping feet and jovial hollers are staples of a listener's expression, Gripka's ultimate desire is for his music to provide a sanctuary for them: "I really want my music to touch people at an level that fosters personal reflection." Through the prose of real stories about real people, including personal examinations of heartbreak and longing, Gripka does exactly that. He is an up and coming artist that should reach the sight of your crosshairs very soon.
