Jul Big Green
Jul is a diverse musician from Cleveland, Ohio with styles that range from Pop-Rock, Hip-Hop, and Jazzy acoustic. Growing up in a musical family led him to develop a passion for the art at a young age. This passion would later drive him to receiving a degree from Akron University in music and also to start his solo and group projects under the name Jul Big Green. Through his music he conveys a positive message to his listeners while also giving them an enjoyable musical aspect. While he reaches to younger generations, his diverse arrangement of songs pulls in an even more diverse group of people.
“I have such a wide musical interest and I can’t pick just one style, so I figured why not make music for everybody…I want my music to be positive. I want my music to convey a positive, not to be confused with happy, message. Whether it’s Rock, Hip-Hop, Love or Pop Song.”
Jul can be seen performing either as a solo artist or with his full band at many locations around Cleveland and has also done several tours touching Florida, Michigan, and New York. This unique artist truly accomplishes his goal of having at least “one song for everyone”, so if you’re someone who can never decide what to listen to check out this artist.
