Julius, hailing from Pioneer Drive Sea Lots, collaborated on a track with King David Rudder for one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most influential songs in its music history, titled “The Future Belongs To Me.” He continues to contribute to the rich cultural tapestry of Trinidad and Tobago through his music, with pulsating hits such as “Good Oh,” “Liking It, “No Breather,” “No New Friends,” and the thought-provoking single “Good Morning Trinidad.”
Julius delved even deeper, paying homage to his beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago with the song “What’s Your Name.” Leveraging his natural talent for songwriting and his powerful melodious vocals, Julius graced us with another single that could arguably be the song of the decade, “Free State Of Mind,” which was penned by Marge Blackman, the daughter of the Calypso great and the inventor of Soca, Garfield “Ras Shorty ” Blackman.
Julius has asserted that this song will resonate with people worldwide, offering motivation to keep going and never give up. With more projects in the works, he is dedicated to ensuring that Soca music continues to evolve as a global genre.
Julius, along with 71ghQ The Band, achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first Caribbean band to be featured at Baltimore’s Artscape, America’s largest free music festival, and the Baltimore Book Festival in 2012.
Throughout his travels, Julius has gained invaluable experience and earned the respect of fellow musicians as an imaginative lyricist and dynamic performer in the Soca era movement.
