"One of the best songwriters and record makers I've heard in a very long time." Randy Newman "Richard just knocks me out. Some of the coolest, smartest and original music I've heard in years." Bonnie Raitt "My favorite collection of songs by one of my favorite songwriters." Norah Jones "...a voice as distinctive as a thumbprint...if only more songwriters - and more people - had his balance of wit and fortitude." Jim Farber/New York Daily News ________________________________________ After three independent-label releases, New York-based songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Richard Julian made his major-label debut in 2006 with Slow New York (Manhattan Records/EMI), introducing what Harp Magazine calls Julian’s “nimble lyricism” and “keenly observational songs” to a broader audience nationally and internationally. A ubiquitous presence of late, he has also enjoyed success as a member of The Little Willies, a country side-project featuring himself, Norah Jones, and Jim Campilongo; and as a co-producer, writer, and performer on vocalist/songwriter Sasha Dobson’s bossa-tinged Modern Romance (Secret Sun Recordings). Slow New York, produced by Brad Jones and the partner-team of Lee Alexander and Norah Jones, proved a critical favorite. The Washington Post opined. ”…may be one of the year’s best albums…” and Julian has spent the last year traversing the globe in support of it, most notably on tours with Bonnie Raitt, Rosanne Cash, and Madelleine Peyroux. His “time off” has been spent touring with The Little Willies and as a sideman for Dobson. “It certainly has been a busy year for me,” says the unassuming Julian, “if not a bit musically schizophrenic.” Currently, Julian is preparing to release his latest Album "Sunday morning in Saturdays Shoes" through Manhattan Records in February 2008. ________________________________________ "his razor-sharp acoustic-spun vignettes about life in the big city and its varied inhabitants - coupled with his honey-and-sand vocals - make this a charmingly understated effort...Julian's sparkling guitar work shines throughout, as does his wit." Philadelphia Inquirer "Julian [displays] nimble lyricism as he sings his character-driven, keenly observational songs. With each clever, low-key, dusky line, he shows why we should sit up and notice him.”Harp Magazine "...a literate storyteller for whom songwriting is a craft not an occupation, who observes and comments with a painter's eye and a filmmaker's vision... " NetRhythms "This New Yorker tosses off self-addressed put-downs with the ease of the young Springsteen during his acoustic Jersey-boy period.” Entertainment Weekly
