Full Biography

Julian Smith’s distinctive soprano saxophone sound has been heard all over the world on Sony’s CLASSIC CHILLOUT SERIES under his previous stage name ‘Joolz Gianni’.

He became better known after achieving 2nd runner up placement in the 2009 series of BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT with 700000 telephone votes and millions of you tube views.

Since the show he has been invited to play for the Prime Minister toured arena’s with the other BGT finalists played for many prestigious events including ARK REDCROSS and RAYS OF SUNSHINE and even played for Prince Charles. He also duetted with Kenny G at The Albert Hall and his album Chilled 2 The Sax was released by Sony.

‘A HUGE TALENT’ –Simon Cowell



Julian Smith graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire in 1991 with distinction in performance and teaching on his first study which was at that time Bassoon. He then was offered a teaching post with Sandwell MBA and a part time post with Cheltenham Boys College.

He also at this time performed in various pit orchestras for musicals and shows including the Royal Shakespeare Company. Saxophone for Julian was also a great passion and in 1993 he heard Kenny G for the first time and became instantly hooked on this instrument and in particular the soprano saxophone. Julian built a band around himself which became very popular in the Midlands area playing in restaurants and prestigious corporate events on invitation.

Julian’s musical style could be described as “Easy listening/Crossover Classical” as another big influence for his musical style is the vocal group “Il Divo”.
After producing a couple of self financed albums with producer and arranger Ty Unwin a track called Silver was placed  on the multi platinum compilation album called Classic Chillout  series by Sony in 2001  and subsequently more tracks were commissioned from Julian and Ty over the next two years.

Frustrated without any further real success in the music industry after a period of six years Julian decided to enter BRITAINS GOT TALENT IN 2009 and achieved second runner up placement with nearly 700000 public telephone votes and millions of YouTube hits on the internet.

Since the show Sony have released the album ‘Chilled 2 the sax’ under Julian’s stage name ‘Joolz Gianni’.

A very special moment on the show for Julian was when the producers arranged for him to play with his idol Kenny G at the Royal Albert Hall where Kenny G actually presented Julian with his own signature model saxophone as a good luck gift.

Since then Julian has performed for Prince Charles at Clarence House and many other prestigious events including ARK THE RED CROSS and RAYS OF SUNSHINE.
