A Detroit, Michigan native born into Iraqi descent, Julian grew up in two worlds and stems from a long musical lineage. His paternal grandfather performed as part of the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra for over 20 years, and his father is a renowned pianist. Julian first learned to play the classical guitar, piano, and write songs at the site of his father’s music school in Dubai. At just eight years old, while still honing his piano and guitar skills, he started to rap. At 16-years-old, he got his first midi keyboard and began to teach himself music production. The multi-instrumentalist, rapper, and producer, brings a decidedly global perspective to his music and hip-hop culture.
After a long musical career, Julian is finally ready to establish himself as an artist that is here to stay. Teaming up with singer Jeremih, his latest single “Got It On Your Own” is a slinky single that showcases the young 21-year old’s production prowess and raw lyricism. Combined with his smooth vocals, Julian brings a decidedly global perspective to his music and hip-hop culture.
