Israel Nash Gripka – Beyond Barn Doors


Israel Nash Gripka is an American acoustic / folk-rock singer-songwriter currently based in New York.

From the Ozark Mountains of the Missouri countryside to the concrete jungles of New York City, Israel Nash Gripka presents a musical tradition that reveals both the American fabric and all that rests beneath those weathered and faded blankets of stars and stripes.

In an almost conflicted manner, Gripka uses his upbringing as the son of a southern Baptist minister to contrasts the realities of his life. From drinking to praying, from churches to county jails, and from sorrow to revival, his songs are stories and reflections that serve to kick like classic Rock N’ Roll all while pining with the heart of Americana roots, complete with undertones of soul trampled country, and gospel choirs.
