Julius has a unique method of fusing an array of styles, with the distinct Soca flavor, pleasing a broad, international market. He storms the stages globally and leaves the crowds wanting more.
In 1991, Julius went beyond mere village talent, when he performed on a track named “The Future Belongs to Me” with David Rudder. The song instantly became an anthem among T&T youth of that era, who were facing a rising drug crisis. It also gained international recognition by then First Lady, Hillary Clinton, who would use it as the theme for her drug-free campaign in colleges and high schools across the United States.
Julius caught the eye of Machel Montano, while performing with a group from the Sea Lots community called Yard Men College. He was requested to work on several songs, alongside fellow musicians and cast members, the Xtatik/Mad bull crew. He has also shared the stage with many fellow renowned international artistes such as Red Rat, Superglue, Lord Nelson, Kevin Lyttle, MX Prime, the Mighty Sparrow, Walker, and Buccaneer. One of the highlights of this phase of his career was when Julius joined Jamaican Dancehall superstar Shaggy, on his mega hit “It Wasn’t Me”, during a performance in Trinidad. Machel was said to have suggested Julius for the performance in the Real Unity Concert because of his, ‘milky melodious vocals.’
Julius has been performing frequently in the NY region this year and returned from St Vincent and the Grenadines’ World Famous Carnival, after also shaking the stage at the Philadelphia Caribbean Festival at Penn’s Landing.
He is a prolific writer, a diverse artiste and knows how to the work the crowd. When Julius takes the stage it’s time to dance. He’s contagiously uplifting with his eclectic styles that encompass a full spectrum of world beats.
