Juliun Starks

Genre: Soul/R&B
Hometown: Dallas, TX

Juliun Starks began his musical career early, performing in front of his large family during childhood. Studying trumpet and voice in school, Juliun competed at a high level while continuing to develop his own RnB/Soul sound. He performed his original song "Are You Lonely?" at the premier of the indie film The Secrets of Betsy and has since continued to post new songs on social media. Juliun regularly records both cover songs and originals which have tallied thousands of listens on Soundcloud, YouTube, and Reverbnation. Influenced by legends Luther Vandross and Jefferey Osborne, Juliun emulates their softer side while bringing to the table arrangements and interpretations that exhibit his background in musical theory. To date, Juliun has reached the heights of performing at the Texas Solo Artist Awards, having his cover of Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" featured on straightdisrespect.com, and having been featuring on indiemusicreviews.net. But those milestones are merely the tip of the iceberg for Juliun Starks, whose future has only just begun.
