Juli Tapken is a multifaceted entertainer. She is a Singer/Songwriter with deep roots in acting. Juli released her debut EP, “Denim with Diamonds” with Platinum Planet Records in Nashville in 2020. It features her soulful classical vocals to a country/bluegrass feel, some comparing her to Alison Krauss, with lyrics that tell a personal story. She has since added two singles to her musical library, “Something’s Just Not Right” and “Hopin’ it’s Snowing”. Her experiences acting seem to give each song layers; like that multi-dimensional character in a great movie.
Ms. Tapken has earned multiple award nominations and wins in both music and acting. The International Singer Songwriters Association recently announced her as a Finalist in the U.S. Female Best Vocalist, Songwriter and Rising Star categories in 2022. The Josie Music Awards has also nominated Juli for multiple awards previously in 2020 and 2021. Acting nominations have also been graciously received in the Best Actress category of many festivals across the nation for her work in Feature Films over the past few years. You may have seen her on television, on shows like “Nashville” and “Homicide Hunter”, or in commercials. Her beginnings were in Oklahoma where she performed leads and strong supporting roles in musical and musical comedy shows leading her to Branson, Missouri to professionally pursue that passion where she performed for several years on stages. This led to film and television acting opportunities for which she has collected hundreds of credits in various video media projects.
