Britain's Got Talent star Julian Smith returns to the Artrix
5:50pm Friday 23rd November 2012 in News
BRITAIN’S Got Talent star Julian Smith makes a welcome return to the Artrix for a December concert with a hint of Christmas.
Frustrated without any further real success in the music industry after a period of six years, the soprano saxophonist entered the contest in 2009.
He achieved second runner up placement with nearly 700,000 public telephone votes and millions of YouTube hits on the internet.
Since the show Sony have released the album Chilled 2 the sax under Julian’s other stage name Joolz Gianni.
A very special moment on the show for Julian was when the producers arranged for him to play with his idol Kenny G at the Royal Albert Hall, where Kenny G actually presented Julian with his own signature model saxophone as a good luck gift.
Since then Julian has toured many arenas and theatres, recorded with many Classical Stars including Julian Lloyd Webber and Paul Potts on the Classical Relief for Haiti Charity Single The Prayer.
He has performed for Prince Charles at Clarence House and was even invited to play for the Prime Minister, and has attended many other prestigious charity events.
Julian’s musical style could be described as easy listening “Crossover Classical/Pop/Smooth Jazz” as another big influence for his musical style is the vocal group Il Divo.
He will be at the Artrix December 7 from 8pm.
