I've decided to begin a new venture and form a brand new band from the floor upwards with a genre in the style of Needtobreathe / Green River Ordinance / ie Southern Rock / Rock / Texas, bluegrass / blues or 'a wash of each' and would love to get the following musicians and backing vocalist on board as well;-
Banjo, Fiddle / violin, keys with genre experience or an interest in the genre, guitar (steel, lead and rhythm), drums
Here are a couple of my vocal examples - 1 cover and one I wrote with an established composer -
About me ;-
I've Sung Covers ie Soul / Commitments / James Brown / to / Michael Buble / Needtobreathe / Casting Crowns / Mercyme / Christian Contemporary / etc
I record a lot and write with Soundcloud Composers here and there when I find ones I like -Contemporary soul - contemporary rock - new contemporary Christian artists and styles........ from Deep House / Ambient to Dubstep to .... Let's just say many genres but not Punk or jazz.
Ideally want to meet up with musicians who can bring a lot of experience and ideas to the table especially genre wise ie. as above with maybe rock / country / soul / Blues / Perhaps Christian contemporary or secular or both or just secular - BUT it would have to be quality musicianship and the fun in the music that decides in the end......
I often chill out when I rehearse on my own with what I like (as above and below) - Please forgive the amateur quality of the videos - the Soundtracks on Soundcloud are studio recorded and much better versions, but I've begun using my own software so there is a lot more of my own stuff in the pipeline at the moment.

As above, I love anything, from; The Eagles, Needtobreathe, Green River Ordinance, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, mid to Light Rock To Michael Buble 'Feeling good', The Commitments, Casting Crowns, Mercyme, Emeli Sandi, Pixie Lott......
I like the idea of new band with a quality & big guitar driven country sound with all the pieces that put the shine on an ordinary piece of music. Add into that possibly fiddle or violin, banjo, bass, keys etc (as above) and then you have the beginnings of something good.
Other vocals would be essential to get right too as I love a good harmony and if you get it right well...... Boom !
If you are not interested in the band and I am not busy then I can write easily with a guitarist or keyboard player and then progress from that to a band or we could just meet up and see what people want to bring to the table without it being 'lets just jam and get nowhere quickly idea', of course.
I'm not particularly interested in gigging straight away - I think getting things tight and a 'sound' are more important.
I'd record straight away with the right musicians who have something good to work with as above..... if that makes sense.
I've done lots of gigs and from pubs to corporate so the idea of playing to a room full of drunks who don't appreciate anything isn't really my idea of a fun night but to get the experience for and build on the sound with other band members it can be worth it.
You will get more out of writing and organizing personal gigs if you ask me though.
- Background Singer:
I have a PA in storage that any solo performer or even small band would gig with but Ideally I would like to plug a mic into someones else's obviously or just bring a monitor speaker etc to add to the mix f what people have going on for now. Too much too soon is just a crash mix ! lol
I have my own recording software and ability to record from home.

MEMORIAL - Doug Kaufman & Julian Pope WAV 11.12.2017My kind thanks go to Doug Kaufman for allowing me to make a first move at collaborating with him.

Pushing Back (Formerly 'Gone') - Julian Joe Pope & DimatisThis is the latest song I've written and recorded. Hopefully someone out there will like it. Thanks once again to Dimatis for his outstanding musical composition and allowing me to write lyrics and record my vocals around this track.
Set Fire To The Rain - Julian Joe Pope Adele COVER
Set Fire To The Rain - Julian Joe Pope Adele COVERtrying to produce this was very difficult. The complicated FX on my backing vocals and trying to create a new feel for the song was very technically challenging but I think the overall finish is ok.
OCEANS - Julian Joe Pope Cover
OCEANS - Julian Joe Pope CoverOne of my favorites, which really touches my soul when I sing or even hear it. A great song to turn the lights off and meditate with. This is a cover of a Hillsong classic but others have done it too. The Landr Mastering seemed to make a difference on this track IMHO.
DREAM CATCHER - Julian Joe Pope & Jacoo
DREAM CATCHER - Julian Joe Pope & JacooMany thanks to the amazing Composer 'Jacoo' for once again allowing me to write and record the lyrics on this track of his.
Change the World - JULIAN JOE POPE - UNDERWOOD COVER
Change the World - JULIAN JOE POPE - UNDERWOOD COVEREnjoyed stripping a lot of vocals off this one (after I recorded it obviously) to make it stand alone a lot more than my others. It's all a learning curve !

I TOLD YOU SO - Julian Joe Pope Carrie Underwood Cover
I TOLD YOU SO - Julian Joe Pope Carrie Underwood CoverA Great song sung by Carrie Underwood. I thought I'd give it a go in between writing and recording my own. Quite enjoyable to do and I didn't realise how 'bare' the vocals were in most places which meant the pitching had to be pretty much on point.
CRY ME A RIVER - JULIAN JOE POPE COVER
CRY ME A RIVER - JULIAN JOE POPE COVERThis has always sounded like it would be a hard song to sing so when I came across the backing track for it yesterday I thought I'd have a go at singing this old time song; 'CRY ME A RIVER' I wouldn't advise trying it without a good few songs as a warm up or even recording a few others before hand like I did. Not easy..... but fun to do. (Not sure what the neighbours thought !)

Julian Pope & Trazer - Running - Mastered
Julian Pope & Trazer - Running - MasteredMany thanks to my friend in Los Angeles for allowing me to record my lyrics/vocals onto his amazing instrumental track 'Running'. Trazer's instrumental compositions range from Deep Chill to Electronic and Piano so there is a great deal of extraordinary music beneath his name. 'Trazer' s music is well worth spending the time to get to know on a deeper level and he can be found on soundcloud, Facebook or just by googling to his own music pages for his current and back catalogue which is constantly being added to.
Julian Pope & Trazer LOVE (Remix)WAV Mastered
Julian Pope & Trazer LOVE (Remix)WAV MasteredI've completed my new collaboration song (between US based Trazer and myself) so, thanks once again!! The lyrics are written on Trazer's 'LIFE (remix)' composition. There was a little alteration to the length of your piece but (Down to 5.22), as always, nothing detracting from his original work which you can get to via his Facebook page or just googling him. I wrote the Lyrics and recorded them myself at home (As always nowadays) and then produced the studiowork at home on my computer using Magix Music Maker 2016 software' which is ok but tends to crash often once it gets complex, unfortunately. Saving every group of alterations is the only way to do it, then. As regards the final song, whilst I don't think it's perfect I actually pretty much 'like it quite a lot', which is very unusual for me as I'm always incredibly critical and see my mistakes straight away. It's a 'grower' in my opinion and has a good catchy beat and roll of lyric and music.

HERE (Acoustic Version) - Julian Pope Alesia Cara cov.This is a cover of an Alesia Cara song I heard recently. This is the Acoustic version and I hope to record another more mainstream version which she also did extremely well. I know it's a bit edgy and trippy and faulted in the mix but that kind of goes with the 'irritated' style of the song in my opinion. I kind of like it in a weird way.

J Pope & Trazer - Shimmering - Tonight I Asked A Favor 15.06.16Once again, My kind thanks to Trazer for allowing me to re-record my lyrics and vocals onto his amazing composition. As always I am humbled by his generosity and the generosity of the many other composers that have allowed me to work on their pieces. Thanks, I know sometiumes I feel like I'm writing for a musical with Trazer's tracks but that's because giving a fuller story than in a song is the only way I seem to be able t express my emotions I feel in the amazing music.

Thanks for listening No title as yet 'Push on / or Push yourself (as was written)'

Apocalypse - Julian Pope & Xandra (With kind thanks)Xandra kindly allowed me to sing my lyrics on their beautiful etheric track. I tried to get the emotion into the story of the lyrics which might not have meant a 'perfect' vocal on this one but it was more about the song as a whole in my mind's eye, really. The music is an amazing piece so please check out more of Xandr's compositions.

All I Wanted Was You - Julian Pope & James OliverI co wrote the music a few years ago and got round to writing and recording the lyrics myself this week. I hope to get the help from a very good saxophonist shortly just to round it off. Still trying to get in touch with you James Oliver !!!
Baby Its True - Julian Pope & Kaj.
Baby Its True - Julian Pope & Kaj.I came across the very talented composer, Kaj. , on Soundcloud and eventually made contact on soundcloud to ask if I could write and record on this track and (hopefully) a couple more in the future. Thankfully the answer was yes and a week later here is the result. Hope you like ?

It's not a completed song by any means and any sales will only be on a joint agreement between the composer, versus88 and myself showing a 50-50 split of profits from the moment of listing for sale.
We Are One - Julian Pope & Vexaic
We Are One - Julian Pope & VexaicVexaic very kindly allowed me to write and record some lyrics onto another piece of his. I'm incredibly grateful and have nothing but praise for the Vexaic talent ! Here is the first of 2.... 'We are one'
Into My Arms - my Cover of a NickCave and the bad seeds song
Into My Arms - my Cover of a NickCave and the bad seeds songThis reminds me of all those that we miss that are gone now or those who are just away in the distance living their lives apart from us, for now and maybe forever more. It also makes me think of all those that serve on our behalf in the armed forces keeping us safe from harm and also all those people that work especially hard keeping us safe and alive here at home, especially in the emergency services. Thank you. I pray that God be with you and keep you safe. ..................................................................................................................... re Nick Cave & the Badseeds I only discovered the talented guy and his recently and I'm glad I did. This is my homage to him and them and hope it does them justice. And.... Happy anniversary to my wife Katie. 5 years is 'Wood'
The Outsiders - a cover of a need to breathe song by myself
The Outsiders - a cover of a need to breathe song by myselfThis is my version of a song by need to breathe - one of my favourite bands. I've seen many times over here in the UK and would recommend you do to if you ever get the chance. They have a fantastic spirit and amazing talent.
Floating Down The Amazon - Epic Folk Crescendo Floating Down The Amazon
Floating Down The Amazon - Epic Folk Crescendo Floating Down The AmazonThis great soundtrack composition is by Michael Pitluk and the Lyrics and Vocals are by myself Julian Pope. Michael graciously allowed me to write and record on this piece and for that I thanks him. The lyrics are about a light hearted look at one of those relationships that seem fine in the beginning and while you're in there being happy but after a while you have that impending doom feeling every now and then ! ha ha !
All For You - Julian Pope & Vexaic 08.07.2015
All For You - Julian Pope & Vexaic 08.07.2015Vexaic allowed me to upload, write lyrics for and then record a song for this lovely piece of music in the middle of 2015. I'm very pleased how it worked out. Some great mixing and collab studio work with the vocals by peter knight also who understood what I was after on this.
Say Something - Julian Pope Cver [Originally Performed By A Great Big World And Christina Aguilera]
Say Something - Julian Pope Cver [Originally Performed By A Great Big World And Christina Aguilera]I love this song. Even though I sing it in this lower note I Quite often I like to sing it higher (with the same track but just in a higher more emotive key) but I think that's more of an emotional response to how I feel about the song. Maybe if you ask I'll sing it live 1 day and if it's a big hall you will hear the emotion I mean to put into it when the mood takes me. If I don't get teary eyed then it will be a first.
Almost Broken (Heaven's Garden) Julian Pope - Yal!X
Almost Broken (Heaven's Garden) Julian Pope - Yal!XMusic composed by Yal!X that he kindly let me write and record some lyrics and vocals for. The title of the music is Heaven's garden by Yal!x (Yalil) but I felt drawn, unusually, to this lyric of 'Almost broken'. I don't often, perhaps once before, change the title to suit the lyrics but 'Almost Broken' reminded me of how low a person can get when they unwittingly try to remove themselves from God's presence and God's love. How we can sometimes leave ourselves out in the cold is often quite unnerving, even for those of us that like the cold ;-)
Walking With Jesus - Julian Pope & Johnny Holt Asst MIX
Walking With Jesus - Julian Pope & Johnny Holt Asst MIXI wrote this 5 years ago or thereabouts with assistance with the guitar track from Johnny Holt. I personally always liked it and if I'm truthful I'm sure the vocal could be sung better but I also think there has to be a degree of honesty in a track now and then which just says 'well, that's just how it is - warts and all' ha ha. I may live to regret those words (or re-record the whole thing in a month or so !)
Age Of The Black Wolf - Julian Pope & Yal!X
Age Of The Black Wolf - Julian Pope & Yal!XThe incredible talented musical composition inspired me to write the lyrics and record the vocals. It turned out pretty good in my opinion. This stunning artwork for the Wolf track is by Hanna Bolsher, and thanks, once again.
