Julian King on SoundBetter

Emmy nominated singer/songwriter/vocal producer from Philly. In the words of Khalid & John Legend, you won't find another tone like mine. I do what I love, and I love what I do.

I've been a professional singer/songwriter for 11 years. I specialize in male & female top lines, songwriting (RnB, Pop, Alt., Hip-Hop, Gospel, Inspirational), label ready demo's, vocal mixing and vocal production, vocal arrangements, as well as background vocals and mixes.

My approach is simple: take the job, love the job, do the job.
I'm fortunate to have the ear that enables me to arrange, produce, write, and sing the song with such warm passion and feeling. My tone is universal, which allows me to skate from genre to genre with one task in mind: create great music. Would love if you read some of my reviews so you can get an idea of how I work.

If hired, your job will be turned around in a week or less.

  1. Review by De'Sean Ricardo

    I had the privilege of collaborating with Julian on a couple projects and I can't sing his praises enough. His vocal abilities are crazy.. and his background vocals add a depth and richness like no other. I highly recommend him.

  2. Review by Gari G.

    Julian is the bomb! Do not hesitate to work with Julian! His vocals are not just amazing, they are heartfelt; and his delivery is both meaningful and fresh. He connected with the song, and gave it an irresistible flavor...keeping the listener engaged throughout the song with phenomenal runs and vocal nuances. He was also an absolute angel to work with! Seriously, this is your guy. I am 110% satisfied, and twice as much impressed!

  3. Review by Joren M.

    I recently had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with the incredibly talented Julian on my latest musical endeavor, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results.
    I cannot recommend Julian highly enough. His unique vocals, coupled with his professionalism and passion for music, make him an absolute pleasure to collaborate with.

  4. Review by Five-One

    He is a great vocalist and has enriched my songs!
    Also, his work speed is surprisingly fast and ensures accurate quality!
    I'm glad that I got a good result :)

  5. Review by Arjun R.

    I was trying to create something new and different and Julian helped support my vision. Amazing turn around time and I am really excited about this song we made. Julian is by far one of the most talented vocalists and songwriters I have worked with. We sometimes forgot in this business, that creating music is an amazing experience and a way to connect with other people. Collaborating with Julian on this project brings that energy and reminds you why you started making music in the first place!

  6. Review by Yejune S.

    Julian is a true expert! It was my very first time hiring a "topliner" here in Soundbetter. He is easy to communicate, responds fast and an amazing person to work with! Also very talented in both singing and toplining. Highly recommended!

    If you have come across Julian and are considering working with him, you will regret it if you don't! Off the bat Julian knew exactly what my song needed and took great care explaining how we were going to get it there. Immediately I knew Julian was the person for the job based on his first message. He is a true professional and very talented. He turned my song from a project I wasn't sure about into a project I've never been more excited about. Your work will be in good hands with Julian!

    Amazing artist, knows how to follow instructions and how to have fun ;)

  19. Review by AIR APPARENT

    Julian went above and beyond to provide a killer demo vocal for my song, and did so quickly and professionally. He brings a strong creative energy and an undeniable vocal talent to his work that really shone through on our project together, and he was super responsive both about feedback and quick updates/file sends. Highly recommend!

    That’s what I call Professional.
    I will definitely be working with Julian again.
    Great humanity. Can’t stop listening to the track we made!

Interview with Julian King

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: The current project I'm working on has been my most honest. it has opened even a deeper door of authenticity, honesty, and matured creativity. Bits and pieces of it are coming out as we speak.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm working on my second project, working with an artist with Epic records, and another male group with 300.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Krystal "Tytewriter" Oliver

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Hmm. Digital.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: My promise is that I will execute to the best of my ability, and as intentional with every record as the first. and if I cannot for whatever reason, I'll point them in the direction of someone who can. and thats on period.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love recording harmonies. I'm a singer myself, so I love creating moods with my voice, and helping to color a song appropriately.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Are you working with any other artist, and how soon can we work again. I always reopen the doors for repeat clients because it means that they trust the work, the vision, and the execution.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: The biggest misconception is that its easy. What we do is hard work, but because we enjoy t, we make it look easy. Not only writing and vocal producing, engineering yourself is a lot of work.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: Whats the feel you'd like me to embody, and are there boundaries stylistically.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: As a creative, I know how hard it can be to give someone else your creation to then bring to life without you having never met. We are here to help you, and ease you through this process. Communicate to us what you'd like, and then trust that we'll get it done to your standards, or even surpass them!

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My Apollo interface, my headphone, my mic, my hardrive, and my computer for protools.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I've spent 12 years working under top writers and vocal producers to cultivate my gift. I started off as a demo singer, yet with attention from A&R's, it blossomed into artistry. I then spent some time singing background for Syleena Johnson and even John Legend while on The Voice with him. I have a lot of experience touring and live vocals which allows me to make the best choices when it comes down to laying a record down, as well as backgrounds. Outside of my own personal music, I still write and vocal produce for other artists. I'm grateful for my experience because it's paved the way for me to be able to produce a sound that a lot of labels love today.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I'd describe my sound sexual, warm, and a tone unlike most other guys.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I'd like to one day work with timberland. I enjoy the grunginess of his production and his precision. I'd also like to write with Harmony Samuels one day. The way that mind works is insane, and I think I see parts of myself in the work thats written and recorded. One of todays greatest!

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Save your sessions to your hardrive, and not your computer! Learned the hard way. Also hit "save" as many times as you blink lol

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: I usually work on R&B and Pop vocals as that's what a lot of artists in my area focus on.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My stringiest skill is my voice, but after would be vocal producing and arranging.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring harmonies, I bring melodies, I bring stacking, and background lines, I bring a freshness to each track.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: My typical work process depends on the job. If I'm writing, I start with melody first, lyrics second. If I'm vocal producing and arranging, I'm sitting with the song (if I didn't write it) and figuring out ways to make the song even prettier. It varies from situations o situation.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I use Protools to record in, Universal Audio Apollo Twin interface, I have a Slate Digital VMS ML-1 Large-diaphragm Modeling Microphone - Matte Black, and I use HD300Pro Closed Studio Headphones, and Sennheiser HD 300 PRO Closed-back Professional Monitor Headphones.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I absolutely am inspired by Coldplay, Pj Morton, Timberland, Frank Ocean, and Krystal "Tytewriter" Oliver.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Most common work I do is engineering the session, writing, vocal producing, and vocal arranging for clients.
