My name is Julian (Pronounced Who-Lee-On), I'm and R&B, Pop, Soul, Jazz and Contemporary singer, I love singing and entertaining. I'm a very nice and friendly person and very much a chatter box, lol. You can hit me up on my myspace page http://www.myspace.com/julianclarke
lol, someone wrote this bio for me on a fan page..."Born in Denville, NJ on May 21st 1987, Julian is a triple threat Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Contemporary, Soul and Jazz artist/producer from Tampa, Florida who started his music career in early 2002. He wasn't really much recognized until 2006 when he released his rumored to be 1st single "1 Of A Kind" off of his freshman album "One Of A Kind (Winter 2008)". He is also infamous for his online radio hits "If U Were My Girl", "Giv It Up" and Damzel In Distress.
Being in High School, Julian faced alot of teenage issues, rumors would shower the school about him being a conceited psycho with mental issues, the weird, silent type because he was a very imaginative artist (Screen writing wise) and would express himself in a way people never understood, he would also perform his rap songs in his school morning show and caused himself the reputation as the school loser. Sick of people's put downs and hatred of him and his music, Julian became motivated to enroll into a Jazz Choir Class to be taught how to sing and perform better.
Reflecting upon his past, being told he couldn't do it, being compared to a fake/wannabe Eminem, this White/Hispanic R&B and Pop singer showed true courage having the balls to perform live on his high school morning show in front of more than 4,000 students, he didn't care how people felt about him or his music, he was just simply being himself, making him a hero to most.
After his graduation, he shied from the strange kid he once was and became the grown man he is today. Using the techniques he learned in his past Jazz Choir Class, Julian finally started the production of his 1st album "One Of A Kind" and to this day is working on the album.
Julian hopes one day in the long run to become an entrepreneur and the CEO of his own entertainment empire highlighting fields in music, film, modeling, photography, graphic/digital design, magazines and possibly clothing lines.

Yep, sure do, I've performed live on my high schoo's morning show about 9 times, I sing at clubs, parties and other events as well. I think one of my favorite times was when I performed live at the Ramond James Stadium.

People: My family, my friends, life. Life has given me a lot to think about, a lot to write about, a lot to sing about and a lot to dream about, everything in life comes with a lesson and it gives me the fuel I need to create the art that I create. I write as a form of Justice, Balance, Therapy, Equality, Reason, Truth and Understanding of things in social, physical and mental life styles to try and teach the world more than they know so that they can get an understanding of things that they never realized before.
I write to heal the pain that people have in their hearts and help them deal with situation that most people are too mentally unstable to handle, I help them take baby steps. So I thank life for all it's given me, even if I went through hard times and struggles, it's helped me become the wise person I am today, it's given me the ability to pass my knowledge onto the people that need it the most.
