Fancy Words For Failure

A new concept album about success (or lack thereof) from your favorite New Yorker.


of goal

Hello my name is Julian and it’s about that time again. I spent all of 2016 writing a new record, and in March of 2017 I spent 5 days recording it. And I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of people like YOU!

Over the past year, I’ve documented the creation of my new record. Behind the walls of this website, you’ll find demos and lyrics of each song, my thoughts on the music, videos and photos from the recording studio, and more. I’ve also been giving away goodies like bootlegs, podcasts with songwriter friends, videos of me doing covers, and unreleased b-sides. And I’m going to continue posting exclusive stuff until the release of the album on June 16 2017.

Pledging not only gets you access to all this content, you’ll also get an advance copy of the new album TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE REST OF THE WORLD.

It’s been an amazing experience to share my creative process with people. The journey’s not finished yet. Sign up and join me for the homestretch!
