Whatsup SoundBetter community! I'm here, ready & able to add that piano/keys/synth sparkle to your project! I have two decades of experience at the keyboard performing a wide array of genres and contexts, plus the ear and sensitivity to match the style and vibe of YOUR vision. No genre, context, or keys need is off-limits. Let's work! :)
I come from a primarily jazz background - having studied since I was twelve years old/Bachelors in jazz performance from Temple U - but through the years have found myself in just about EVERY context in terms of performing, accompaniment and session work. I've played everything from upscale cocktail hours, to crushing pop tunes at wedding receptions, backing up vocalists across the genre spectrum, accompanying gospel choirs in music ministry, and providing the keyboard/synth glue in live hip-hop and funk bands. I've co-led about 3 original projects over the years, ranging from jam, hip-hop, & live electronica, and currently write and arrange all the music for my group The JHP, with one full-length album out and our second one on the way as we speak!
I love collaborating with other artists to help bring their projects to life, whether it's helping the songwriting, production, arranging process..or just staying in my piano lane and getting.the.job.done. I find I'm at my best simply trusting my ear and intuition above all else - always making sure to complement rather than dominate the Music capital M. I'm happy to offer piano tracking services from my Logic Pro X home studio setup, or more involved production as well. I can also aid in the writing or arranging process every step of the way. No genre is off-limits. Check out my samples & let's make some musical magic together!!

Julian is an incredible and versatile player. I was throwing all kinds of stuff at him, and he always came up with piano parts that greatly enhanced the songs. Almost as important, he's a very personable guy - super easy to work with. I'll be calling on his talents again in the future, I have no doubt. 5 gold stars!
A good piano player with attention to detail !
