New York pianist and singer Julian Velard performs his original theatrical pop and ballads at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 29, at the Encore Room of Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.
Velard became a bit of an Internet phenomenon in England, where his songwriting took hold in 2006. His MySpace postings helped land him a deal with EMI in 2007, and soon after Velard moved to England to further his career.
His debut single, "Jimmy Dean & Steve McQueen," hit radio in the United Kingdom in 2008 and was featured on a number of shows.
Admission: $5 to $15, sliding scale. The event is presented by Amadeus Project.
