    Julian Velard: Plays Another Show

    Julian Velard

  • To mark 19 years of treading water in music business, Julian Velard will play yet another show of his songs. The set list will include his originals that have received minor radio airplay outside the United States, left-of-center covers of obscure tracks by 1970s singer/songwriters, and slow acoustic interpretations of modern pop hits.The songs will be punctuated by self-conscious quips and the occasional berating of an audience member. This is a rare intimate performance by Velard, something he only does once a month or so. Join him on a Monday night in the heart of beautiful Astoria, Queens for the kind of musical experience will certainly happen again. 
    Julian Velard’s musical stylings and comedic timing have made him a fixture in both the comedy and music scenes in his native America, and have created cult followings overseas in the UK and The Netherlands. His music initially took hold a decade ago, where praise from The GuardianTime Out London, and The Sunday Times led to a major label record deal.
    He’s toured internationally as an opening act for artists such as Jamie Cullum, Paul Carrack, and Goldfrapp, and he has shared the stage with a host of comedians including Will Ferrell, Reggie Watts, Paul Scheer, and Wyatt Cenac. His ability to transition seamlessly between both worlds has led to regular appearances on The Howard Stern Show and NPR’s Ask Me Another. In 2017, he was an artist in residence at the prestigious Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City.
    Velard has written music and lyrics for Pop acts, commercials and the Internet, including songs for UK sensation Olly Murs, Wix.com, New York Knicks, Buzzfeed, Audible and The New Republic. His work has been featured Mashable, The AV Club, and Nerdist.  Velards latest albumFancy Words for Failure, was profiled in The Wall Street Journal.
