Julian Bell
From banging on pots and pans, playing his toy guitar, and singing joyfully as a child, to now strumming melodious tunes to audiences across the country, Julian Bell from the suburbs of Washington, D.C, is a singer-songwriter with a passion for delivering music from the heart. His music is a fusion of sounds with influences ranging from percussive pop to expressive blues.

Julian Bell is an optim
ist and realist whose reflections on life are creatively communicated through his music. His songs express the things about life and love that we often take for granted or easily overlook. Julian's goal is to create music that people will love and enjoy listening to over the years. No longer just a visitor to Chicago, Julian can be seen headlining at festivals, playing at local stages, and local coffee shops.

Julian's love for inspirational and thought provoking tunes stems from his beginnings as a student guitarist for a worship team at a church where he and his family use to attend. Later, Julian would continue his love for music in high school by singing in musicals and playing for the school's worship team. Having a heart of compassion for others, Julian traveled to Guatemala with his school to help build a library for a children's orphanage, and was able to share his musical gifts to bring smiles to many little children.
Completing his studies in music and performance at Columbia College in Chicago, Julian has been steadily perfecting his craft. As he likes to say, "making moves" only comes by preparing for an opportunity. Julian competed and earned a finalist spot in the Open for Dave Barnes competition. Following that opportunity, Julian earned a coveted spot on NBC's second season of The Voice. While working on his first EP, to be released this year, Julian was approached about a new show produced by Queen Latifah titled, The Next, for the CW network. Julian earned one of four spots to represent Chicago in the singing competition.

Julian has released a single from the EP titled: Breakdown, available now at
