Juli Tapken is a multifaceted entertainer. She is a Singer/Songwriter with deep roots in acting. Juli has just released a debut EP, "Denim with Diamonds" with Platinum Planet Records in Nashville. It features her soulful classical vocals to a county/bluegrass feel with lyrics that tell a personal story. Her experiences acting seem to give each song layers; like that multi-dimensional character in a great movie. Being Individual to each participant is what drives Juli in acting and songwriting.
Ms. Tapken has earned multiple nominations and several wins in the Best Actress category of many festivals across the nation for her work in Feature Films. She is also appearing regularly on television shows and often 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 worked for 10 years. This lead to film and television acting opportunities for which she quickly collected over 50 credits in various video media projects. A movie is what brought her to the attention of Platinum Planet Records and soon she signed as a Songwriter and Recording Artist.
Singing has always been her passion and she is ready to take it on professionally with the same vigor and willingness that internally drives her in acting.
