It is during his performances in both local and regional clubs/restaurants that Julian can be heard doing high quality musical impressions of Pavarotti, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Johnny Mathis, Louis Armstrong, Luther Vandross and Barry White. While these are stirring renditions of classic hits and they draw raves from the audience, it is when he does the Coles – both father and daughter – that he brings down the house. People simply cannot believe that this beautiful music is coming from one person. But, Julian’s talent does not stop there.

King, The Stylistics, The Delphonics, Shannon (Let The Music Play – reached double platinum), Ray, Goodman & Brown, and on the hit Christina Aguilera album “Just Be Free”.

It includes such classic hits as Unforgettable, Beautiful In My Eyes, Lady In Red, Summerwind, Time To Say Goodbye and two duets with Ben E. King – Stand By Me and Only You. The album now appears in many jukeboxes around New York City. Julian’s hit single – “Can’t Go This Way Again” – distributed on TC Records, reached number 46 on the Billboard Chart of “The Top 100”.
