Julian Velard

Julian Velard Julian Velard's engaging style of theatrical, piano-based pop has been colored richly by several stints in London, where he recorded his first two full-length albums, The Planeteer (2009) and Mr. Saturday Night (2011). His newest release is If You Don't Like It, You Can Leave.

With a style the Sunday Times calls "catchy but complicated; a surprisingly rare combination," Velard turns the piano-pop tunesmith stereotype on its ear with a most refreshing twist: a biting, 21st century wit in a stylish package. Time Out London even compared him to the likes of Tom Waits and Harry Nilsson.

Julian's versatility has also earned him regular appearances on NPR, serving as the musical director for the pilot Scott Simon's Wonderful Town and making regular appearances on the musical trivia show Ask Me Another with Ophira Eisenberg. When not performing, Julian also finds time to pen songs for other artists, from UK singer-songwriter Olly Murs to the New York Knicks (his rollicking "The Mighty Lin," an ode to the team's former point guard).
