Drummer Julian Archer is a graduate of Denver School of the Arts, in Denver, Colorado. Julian has been drumming since the age of 5, and started playing jazz in the 8th grade. After playing jazz for one summer, Julian auditioned into Denver School of the Arts’ top jazz band, which has won the Downbeat Award for Best Arts High School Big Band from 2013 to 2017. This band also attended Essentially Ellington 2017 in which they won second place. Since Julian has discovered jazz music, he has deeply immersed himself in it, listening to and practicing the music every day. His love for the music is obvious, and can be seen and heard every time he plays the drums. Throughout Julian’s time as a musician, he has won multiple awards for his playing. Julian recently was deemed a 2017 YoungArts winner, and attended the YoungArts Regional in Miami, Florida. He has played in many other notable ensembles such as Colorado All State Jazz Band, the UNC Greeley High School Jazz Honor Band, and Denver Citywide Jazz Combo. He was also given an honorable mention from the Grammy Foundation in 2017. Julian will be attending the San Francisco Conservatory of Music on scholarship in the fall of 2017 studying jazz.
