Julie Schreiber Band
As a singer/songwriter and guitarist, Julie Schreiber, graduate of Berklee College of Music, has been performing professionally since 1994. She has performed at numerous college campuses, coffeehouses, bookstores, bars, clubs, and festivals, and worked with such artists as: Leni Stern, The Nields, Ellis Paul, The Badlees, Mary Prankster, Tom Rush, Livingston Taylor, Vance Gilbert and Richie Havens. Possessing a four-octave range and the ability to write diverse styles of music, Julie leaves audiences amazed by her vocal talent and moved by the power and passion of her music. "As impressive as Julie Schreiber''s talent in crafting an interesting, catchy and meaningful song is, it''s still only secondary to her ability to sing. Start with the clarity of a Joan Baez, but add in some infectious drive, an ability to hold a note and some occasional slithery and sultry intonations...this is post-coffeehouse, pop-influenced, rock-oriented original stuff...As a kicker, the band incorporates classics...not simply covers, but rather standards, plus some "value added" guitar work by Wirsing. Schreiber''s tribute to Led Zeppelin, her rendition of "Immigrant Song" is masterful, reverential, and full throttled" (John Train, PA Musician, March 2002).
Lead guitarist, Eric Wirsing''s extraordinary musical gift and interest in all genres of music brings forth a versatility not often found in someone his age. "...Wirsing flat-out rules the electric guitar, wailing with style and grace..." (Daniel Unterberger, Fly Magazine, January 2003). While at Berklee College of Music, Eric joined the Julie Schreiber Band and has worked with her since. "Eric adds something to my music that I had been looking for for years." said Schreiber. "He is an amazing performer, songwriter and arranger. He''s one of the best kept secrets in music."
Drummer Melvin Torres joined the Julie Schreiber Band in January of 2004. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Torres brings exuberance and joy to his playing that is manifest in the overall sound of the band. Melvin moved to New York City from Puerto Rico in 1992 to attend the Drummers Collective, where he studied and worked with notables such as Kim Plainfield and Christopher Parker. He moved to Lancaster, PA in 1994 and has been playing and studying his craft since. Described by Julie as the "big, lovable guy with drum sticks", Melvin is a welcome addition to the Julie Schreiber Band.
With an album under their belt, To Dreaming, and a repertoire of over 80 cover songs, the Julie Schreiber Band is a force to be reckoned with. "Somebody at the bar remarked that The Julie Schreiber Band was a sparkling "diamond in the rough". Marinating that allusion in my mind for a bit, I''d have to disagree. The Julie Schreiber Band is more like a finished polished gem. It lacks little but to be picked up" (John Train, PA Musician, March 2002). "Julie Schreiber must have been blessed by a higher power...She delivers songs with a passion that is one hundred percent heart and soul...There''s no doubt in my mind that she''ll be the next big thing to come out of Harrisburg" (Paul Autry, Ballbuster Magazine, November 2001).
