Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Julian came from a musical family, but began playing after hearing B.B. King. He played piano and made music with sampling before he picked up the guitar at 17. He trained with his uncle, a professional guitarist, at first, then studied with Peter Bernstein, Mark Whitfield, and Ravi Coltrane. Since 2011 he has performed in the house band at The Red Rooster/ Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem, and with various groups around NYC. He also leads his own band, The Wackness, which blends Jazz, Electronic, and Hip-Hop. Follow him @OfTheSixStrings.
