When Julian rolled up on his bike I really didn’t know what to expect. I was taking photos along the East River of the sunset and a few geese splashing around below. My usual spot. All of the sudden this guy came up close and asked me if I could help him out. He looked straight out of a hip hop video, complete with a gold grill on his lower teeth. The look is authentic and completely fitting. Julian is a musician trying to make in it New York.
To listen to a sampling of his music (hip hop and electro) check out his myspace page here. Let the first song play through. He’s got a line in there, “They call me odd, but I’ll get even.” that I think is pretty cool.
Oh, and the way I helped him out? He needed a photo taken of himself. We traded emails and here it is. He’s a cool guy and I hope his music career takes off.
