SAN ANTONIO - This week on The Garage we’ve got Julian Gill, a one-man band that really rocks. Click here to watch…
It’s few and far between when you find a young kid with all the talent to make it big -- and Julian Gill is one of those guys! He plays soulful rock songs with a little touch of funk. His voice is interesting and his music is heavily influenced by folk, making it anything but boring. By combining the acoustic guitar, harmonica and even an occasional, old-fashioned foot stomp Julian Gill has put together a formula for awesome music that tingles the senses.
With such powerful performances one has to wonder where does a senior at Central Catholic High School find his voice?
“I was going into my junior year of high school and I heard Bob Dylan. I really listened to him for the first time. I guess I just fell in love with the performance. It just seemed so sincere and genuine,” explained Gill.
His style is reminiscent of the great folk artists from the 50’s and 60’s. He also finds inspiration from the 70’s – like the great Bob Dylan – and he pulls the strings to make a unique sound that is surprisingly real.
Currently, Julian Gill is working on a record with Keith Harter Music
and says you can expect this effort to have a different sound than his first.
“Kind of an older sound,” said Gill. “More of the way they recorded back in the day – like the 60’s folk music and things like that.”
