With a range as delectable as this, he knows exactly what keeps his creative juices flowing. “It is simply the need for people’s minds and souls to be fed a healthy diet of music,”Julian says.

“He heard my music, liked it and sent me a beat pack. Afterwards, I sent him back some ideas and “Need A Vibe” was the one he liked the best”. Talk about a smooth connection!In terms of what he hopes to accomplish with his music, Julian aims to be a positive influence on the culture. Although we don’t like to think about the warm weather leaving us, bops like “Need A Vibe”, helps us sail through these final summer months with a smile.
