JULIEN AMAR

Julien Amar is one of Vancouver's premier young solo entertainers.

 

Comfortable in a wide variety of styles, vocal ranges and instruments, he is a musical jack of all trades with a specialty in Jazz piano. Having played in one form or another since his early childhood, he grew to love and practice Jazz, big band and showtunes more seriously in late High School.

 

Julien has been performing in a professional capacity since his graduation from Bishop's University where he earned Bachelors degrees in Jazz piano and Theater Performance. He has performed, written for and toured with various local indie bands (Old Man Canyon, Goodbye Enemy Airship, Julien Amar and the Boiz), using a Nord Stage II and a Fender Telecaster.

 

Julien owns all his own equipment and is available for completely instrumental sets as well as ones with vocals and banter in between songs. With a vocal range from an Orbison-esque screeching falsetto to a Sinatra style baritone and a repertoire ranging from children's birthday party tunes to serious 50s style bebop, his variety, vibrant personality and piano chops are sure to please a wide variety of audiences.
