A prolific writer, Julian Coryell has written countless songs over the past 20 years. About forty of those songs span the course of Julian’s four critically acclaimed solo records (see the “Original Music” page). Numerous additional songs reside on other artists records through co-writing partnerships, including Madeleine Peyroux's "Barebones" album, which reached number one on the Billboard Charts.
As a co-writer, Julian works with each writing partner to develop songs that are not only lyrically timeless, but also reach people on an emotional level, whatever that emotion might be. When the co-writer is also the artist performing the song, Julian works with them to find their core truth, the essence of who they are and what they need to express through lyric and melody. Julian is equally comfortable creating a song from thin air as he is doctoring or polishing a draft that was previously started.
