Julian Pollack aka J3PO is a pianist/keyboardist and producer based out of LA. Described by Timeout New York as a musician who “deftly balances virtuosity with tenderness,” Julian is an in-demand sideman as well a leader of his own projects.

At the age of 18 he moved to New York City from his native California hometown of Berkeley. While in New York, he studied with pianists Brad Mehldau, Kenny Werner, and Jean-Michele Pilc. Professionally, Julian has recorded/performed with the likes of Marcus Miller, Tierney Sutton, John Pizzarelli, George Garzone, Michael League (Snarky Puppy), Rodney Green, Bob Reynolds, Mike “Maz” Maher (Snarky Puppy), Louis Cato (The Tonight Show), The Lesson GK, Grace Kelly, Ari Hoenig, Nir Felder, Gil Goldstein (Esperanza Spalding), Chase Baird (Antonio Sanchez), Amanda Brown (Adele), Evan “EMAR” Marien, Grace Weber, Nani, and many others.

Currently, Julian (as J3PO) is working on a beat-tape project which combines jazz with electronic genres such as progressive soul, experimental hip-hop, and 80s synth-wave. The first single "The Crab" was released December 12th and the full album will be available in early 2019.
