Julian graduated with honors in Music from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, England and has enjoyed a successful and varied career in music, business, and education. In music, he has traveled the world as a Music Director and Conductor, performing across Asia, Europe, and Scandinavia and extensively in London’s West End. He moved to the USA in 2012 and became the Music Director for the Broadway sensation HAMILTON on its first national tour in 2017. He was presented with the Los Angeles Drama Critic Circle for best Music Direction that same year, also winning the Broadway World award, and went on to conduct the production that travelled to Puerto Rico, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda. Work outside theater includes writing and arranging music for numerous TV, game, and album projects, also acting as the music supervisor/arranger for many live events, concerts and tours including ‘Live at the Movies’ produced by Sony Music Entertainment in Europe.
In business he founded the boutique talent agency ‘Boland & Reeve’ in London in 2010, which continues to represent well over 100 performers in theater, television, and film. He has since created The Elev8 Workshop Series in the U.S, providing Broadway workshops to schools and theater communities around the world.
In education, he has been a vocal coach and performance specialist in many of the UK’s leading performing arts schools and was a faculty member at The Broadway Experience in Tokyo and New York. In 2019, Julian experienced a major life change and was forced to quit his role on HAMILTON due to injury. He now uses his considerable life experience to enhance the lives of others through speaking, writing, coaching and workshops, helping individuals and businesses discover and realize their true purpose and potential. He lives with his wife, Lisa, in Los Angeles, California.
