Critics have praised his latest jazz album, Light Blue, describing it as "magnificent", "superlative", "graceful", "beautiful", "energetic", "playful", "sophisticated". His work balances an 'old school' feel with a 'modern and creative touch' to create timeless classics with the best in the industry. Julien is originally from Belgium and has lived in New York since 2012. He has toured and performed extensively in Europe. Julien has recorded 9 albums and numerous EPs as a leader and producer that include many original compositions and unique arrangements.

The tours he undertakes bring him into contact with a variety of cultures that inspire him in his compositions and constantly feed him in his improvisations
