Singer, Songwriter and Pianoman Julian Velard’s musical stylings and comedic timing have made him a fixture on The Howard Stern Show and NPR’s Ask Me Another. His music initially took hold overseas nearly a decade ago, where praise from The Guardian, Time Out London, and The Sunday Times led to a UK major label record deal. He’s toured internationally as an opening act for Jamie Cullum, Paul Carrack, and Goldfrapp. He has also performed alongside a host of comedians including Will Ferrell, Reggie Watts, Paul Scheer, and Wyatt Cenac. Velard has written scores of songs for the internet and beyond including the viral sensation “HP Joelcraft” which was featured in Mashable, The AV Club, and Nerdist. His latest album, “Fancy Words For Failure” was profiled in The Wall Street Journal. Velard was a member of the 2017 Joe’s Pub Working Group.
Tonight Velard celebrate the release of his “Sad Dad” EP, a collection of songs about fatherhood.
