With a sound that can be described as a cross between Elton John and Tame Impala, art-pop singer/songwriter Julian Fulco Perron combines elements of power pop, psychedelic rock, funk music, folk artistry, and experimental genres to create music that shows his willingness to explore as a multi-instrumentalist and producer. Influenced by the writing and recording techniques of Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney, JFP is able to create layers of sound featuring full horn and string sections, mellotron, and vintage keyboards.
Pre-Pandemic, JFP could be found fronting 21 Taras, an eclectic, Denver-based rock outfit, leading with a swagger and performative charm that rendered the band a sight to see.
Julian has embarked on multiple US tours across the West, Midwest and Southern states, and has supported National Acts such as Blue Öyster Cult, Bombargo, Mac Saturn, and Billy Tibbals.
JFP debuted a solo release on July 11th, 2020 entitled Dreamland in which he leaned fully into lush, beautiful, and disorienting psychedelia. Bolder Beat said in their album review, "Often through Beatles-esque transitions and studio wizardry, Julian weaves a common thread throughout his music whether he’s playing the stylings of early-seventies rock, bee-bop, or 60s psychedelia."
Julian’s sophomore album In My Garden which was released on November 11th, 2022, is a folk rock-inspired expedition, giving the audience a look into Julian’s evolving creativity. Driven by acoustic guitar and layered vocal harmony, the album provides the listener with a retro twist on modern folk rock. Westword alluded to the very 1970s vibe in their review of the album saying, “The record also takes sonic cues from the post-Beatles psychedelic pop of Paul McCartney, as well as the non-surf music the Beach Boys started putting out around the same time.”
The start of 2023 garnered extensive radio play for Julian; including from Colorado's largest independent radio station, Indie 102.3 when he was featured by them as an artist of the month for January. Julian is planning the release of his third full-length LP for the summer of 2023 and will embark on a European tour in the fall.
