We had the good fortune of connecting with Julian Fulco Perron and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Julian, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.”

-Alan Watts

This has always rang true to my own experiences in not only defining myself as a person, but also as an artist. I feel very much fluid in terms of styles that I play and represent.

I just like making good sounds. I think my songs are very noncommittal in the sense that they can often toe the line between a certain style or genre; even within the confines of a 3-5 minute time span.

Ultimately, any categorization is up to the listener’s perspective and current mood at a given time and I respect their assessment in such placement.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Some of the biggest influences on my music and art are The Beatles, Queen, Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson and Todd Rundgren. A lot of artists from the 60s and 70s really.

I’ve always been fascinated about the creative processes of those who came before us. Advancements in technology really change our processes, and that has more of an impact on the end result of one’s art project than I think most people would imagine.

Limitations breed creativity, I really do believe. I try my best to place myself in a similar mental and creative state as someone from these time periods, and yet also use these advancements in technology to further define what I am capable of.

So for example, I shoot all of my music videos with Super 8 film; a format first introduced in the 60s. I then combine that with digital elements and experimentation to create the ultimate time traveling art piece.

When I am in the studio I try to encapsulate the same craftsmanship and inventiveness that a visionary from the 60s and 70s would, while also simultaneously adventuring down new paths and avenues of experimentation and musical exploration.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Meow Wolf is of course a must see. An artistic adventure, very much an adult fun house. The original Meow Wolf location is in New Mexico where my girlfriend is from so I’ve always felt a connection to it.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my girlfriend Veronica for reigniting a creative spark within myself and for always showing me the beauty in others and my surroundings.

I also want to thank my family and my manager for being valuable members of my team and ensuring that I am never truly alone, even at my most vulnerable moments.
