Julian Smith

Formerly known as Joolz Gianni, Julian Smith is an incredible saxophone player who is best known for being the third finalist in the spectacular 2009 edition of the ITV show 'Britain's Got Talent'. His ability with the saxophone famously moved people to tears and caused a tremendous impact within the show, winning the hearts of millions of people across the UK.

Before his groundbreaking performance on Britian's Got Talent, Julian Smith played professionally with his own band since May 1993. His performances allowed him to play as a special guest alongside artistes such as Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), Gwen Dickey (Rose Royce) and Hamish Stuart (Average White Band). He also performed on national T.V. together with Chris Rea, M People and Dina Carroll.

In 2003, Julian released his own album named 'Chilled 2 the Sax', with some of his tracks appearing in the multi-platinum selling 'The Classic Chillout Album' from Sony Music released in 2009.

With his own band he has played on many well-known stages, including the Birmingham Symphony Hall and the world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (London and Birmingham), while in the Corporate sector he has played at many prestigious events, including new model launches for Aston Martin, Porsche and BMW.

His music crosses many genres including classical, easy listening and pop.

As a saxophonist, Julian's inspirations are Kenny G, David Sanborn, Candy Dulfer and Kirk Whalum, but most important to him is a strong melody, making the music easy to listen to while appealing to a wide audience.

His performances often include the esoteric art of circular breathing (holding a single note for many minutes) which is always a ‘breathtaking moment’ and a great crowd pleaser!
