Julian Yeo

An original retro-jazz-vocalist with a unique “new-old” approach, Julian Yeo blends old school soul with celebrated qualities of today (and sometimes with a twist). Following Julian's critically acclaimed debut CD album 'Old, New, Borrowed, Blue', Julian's latest CD 'Unusual Passage' is an experience that’s quaint but highly addictive.

It has been an uncommon musical path for international jazz/cabaret vocalist Julian Yeo. His path to singing in the nightclubs of New York City began many miles away. An Australian of Asian descent, Julian was a shy kid decades away from his own personal musical heroes like dapper Fred Astaire. “When I hear Fred Astaire singing Irving Berlin songs; no matter what mood I’m in, these songs always bring a smile to my face,” he says.
