Julian has been involved with music since he was a kid. After school, he would stay in his room and imitate famous pop singers. His mother enrolled him in piano lessons to complement his singing. As a teen, he started out as a keyboard player with a local Jersey City band, doing clubs and restaurants. Not happy with just playing keyboards, he formed his own band where he could sing and play guitar, touring the New York tri state area. After a trip to South America, where he had television appearances, Julian decided to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area where he attended college and continued to study music.
Julian graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration from Moraga’s Saint Mary's College and also attended Blue Bear School of Music at Fort Mason Center. At Blue Bear, Julian studied vocal performance with vocal producer Raz Kennedy and performed with jazz pianist Sharman Duran’s Jazz Vocal Performance showcases. He also studied voice with Dave Stroud, a Los Angeles vocal teacher/coach who teaches world renowned Seth Rigg’s Speech Level Singing method. But by then family responsibilities forced him to pursue regular employment.
During the 90s, Julian worked for a number of financial institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area under pressure from family and friends. By the year 2000, though, he “quit his day job” and set up Julian Martin Entertainment, a San Francisco Bay Area mobile DJ company. He was, again, a full-time entertainer, this time a DJ entertainer, providing entertainment at weddings, private and corporate events. In the process, Julian became a fine host and a premier DJ.
