American Songwriter Magazine is streaming Julian’s new album !!!
The American Songwriter Magazine steamed Julian’s songs and published a little anecdote on how the album came about ! This is what they wrote:
“The Artist: Singer-songwriter and pianist Julian Velard
The Album: New York, I Love It When You’re Mean, his upcoming concept album about the city, out 6/17.
Fun Fact: Velard worked as a street sweeper while studying piano in Paris.
Songwriter Says: “The idea for a New York album started percolating when I was living in London of all places. I moved there and for two years my life was ‘difficult.’ Basic things I had come to take for granted about the city weren’t available to me. I remember my first week in England and hunting for nearly an hour to find an omelet. When I found a restaurant that served eggs, it was an American ‘themed’ diner. I asked for a side of bacon and the waiter looked at me like I was crazy. I think that was the first time I began to realize how deeply NYC was embedded in my DNA. It took moving to the other side of the Atlantic to appreciate the essence of the city I was born and raised in. That and some eggs.”
