“I wanted to shock people,” says Julien Chang. “I wanted to make something in secret, with no expectations, something that would challenge an image of me that people had become familiar with."
With his stunning debut album ‘Jules,’ Chang has accomplished all that and more. Entirely
self-recorded and self-produced, the collection showcases the nineteen-year-old Baltimore
native’s remarkable vision and breathtaking instrumental chops, fusing infectious pop
melodies and experimental psych-rock with progressive jazz improvisation and sophisticated
classical construction. The arrangements twist and turn, toying with expectation and revelling
in the freedom and discovery of youth. At the same time, Chang’s subtle, restrained vocal
delivery suggests a deep thoughtfulness, one that belies his youth as he grapples with love
and friendship, growth and change, memory and regret. The result is an album that boldly
defies categorization, a trippy sonic collage that dares you to keep up as it tips its cap to
everything from Stevie Wonder and The Beatles to Tame Impala and Robert Glasper.
