"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

"In addition to the great music that he's made already, Richard Julian's got lots of good work ahead of him, and I always look forward to hearing it."
Marshall Crenshaw

"My favorite collection of songs by one of my favorite songwriters."
Norah Jones

Richard Julian is a critically acclaimed songwriter and recording artist who resides both in Brooklyn and New Orleans. He has released six albums on major and independent labels and is also widely recognized as a member of The Little Willies, a country side-project featuring Norah Jones and Jim Camplilongo.

His most recent release, Girls Need Attention further establishes Julian as one of the most potent and prolific songwriters recording today. The album features stellar accompaniment from Nels Cline (Wilco) on guitar & Jolie Holland on box fiddle, augmenting the already well-honed trio of Julian, (guitar) Tim Luntzel (bass) & Dan Rieser (drums). Spare flourishes of brass and wind delicately weave in and out of the arrangements with Marcus Rojas on tuba), and Doug Wieselman on bass clarinet. Girls Need Attention. READ MORE | DOWNLOAD

"...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

"Julian is at his best in a live setting, where his words take on a delightfully vivid, three-dimensional life. But 'Good Life' shows that he can effectively channel and contain his work in concise, bite-sized pieces, too."

"This isn't a wallpaper album that you put on and do something else to. Julian makes you listen to his stories with his Zen-like, listen-if-you-want-to attitude. By the time he's singing "The Wrong Bus" (a story within a story), you want to."
Dan Aquilante/New York Post

"Just when you thought rock and roll had lost its sense of irony, or at least the ability to recognize irony when it sees it, along comes Richard Julian...a mood swinging collection of gripping songs and well-placed instrumentation."
Performing Songwriter

"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... "

"This New Yorker tosses off self-addressed put-downs with the ease of the young Springsteen
during his acoustic Jersey-boy period.”
