Born on June 4th, 1975 in London, Julian's music development began when he cut his first demo tape at age five, recording a version of his father's classic composition, Slave Driver. Since then he has mastered a variety of instruments and written songs that reflects his dedication to spiritual enlightenment and social change.
In the 1990s, he formed his own band, The Uprising. His latest release, A Time and Place, is "an organic fusion of rootical reggae and breezy jazz sounds that represent the next milestone in his artistic path".
Other stars include the tattooed Hungarian rockers the Hoolingans, and the brutally explicit Zanzibar, led by a former policewoman.
The Jeam Beam Music contest will introduce the up and coming Slovak bands Appendix, Čisté tvary, and Grooviní Heads.
