Julian is one of the founding members of 2 successful bands, namely the hard‐rock/progressive band Frenzy Mono and doom metal band Nomad Son.

Frenzy Mono managed to release 2 studio albums ‐ Unorthodox in 2006 & O.B.E. in 2010. Gigged intensely the local scene for more than a decade and was entrusted to be a supporting act for international stars, sharing the stage with highly renowned artists such as Robert Plant from legendary Led Zeppelin, The Animals, and others.

Meanwhile, the other band Nomad Son were signed by the Italian‐Polish record label Metal on Metal in 2008, under which label they have released 3 Studio Albums ‐ First Light on CD in 2008, on vinyl in 2009, The Eternal Return on CD in 2010, on Vinyl in 2011, and The Darkening on CD in 2013. On vinyl, the first 2 albums were released co‐jointly with the reputable Emanes Records from France.

With Nomad Son, Julian has gigged extensively around Europe for numerous tours and shows and headlining several Doom metal Festivals. Nomad Son has had the honour to also share the stage with international artists such as Dream Theatre, Paradise Lost, Uriah Heep, Candle Mass, and many more.

In recent years, Julian has also created another musical project, named Tryst Arcane, along with his wife Alexia, who is a soprano singer (vocalist of acclaimed Memento Nostri, local Metal band). The duo is currently giving life to a particularly atmospheric, cinematic style of music, composing original tracks, comprising various keyboard landscapes, with church organ passages and classical piano influences, on top of which lays Alexia’s enchanting melodic voice. In late 2019 their first album AUTUMN was released and in November 2021, the same album will be released on vinyl with the support of the Arts Council Malta. The duo decided that proceeds will be donated to Puttinu Cares and The University of Malta - Research, Innovation, Development Trust (RIDT).
