“Melbourne based singer, Julian James, is no stranger to the blues...blues, intertwined with the twang of country and the upbeat notes of more contemporary sound.” — Sophie Barker 'Forte Magazine'

Julian James has been around Melbourne’s live music scene since before he was allowed to drink in bars.The sound of his band ‘Julian James and The Moonshine State' mixes a love of moonshine-drinking finger picking country with the southern swamp wail of a back porch fiddle. Julian has released four well-received albums to date, all of which he’s road tested on frequent laps of our wide brown land.
