The Julia Set was formed in 2007, the brainchild of a guitarist and a bass player who wanted to play "proper" rock and damn the consequences, and thus The Julia Set was born. That lasted all of five minutes, as the guitarist promptly landed a decent job and vanished into the setting sun.

The bassman, however, carried on with the concept and managed to pull together the five-piece guitar & piano influenced rock band that we've got today, based in and around the West London area. Gigs have included such prestigious venues as The 12 Bar Club, The Alleycat and The Water Rats, amongst others.

We've had a long stint playing covers but always with the goal of writing our own material and, in 2013, we gathered a few songs together and released an EP, titled "Skyline".

Influences include just about any style that's ever included electric guitar, and one or two that haven't. This is reflected in our songs... from quiet and soulful (Freefall) to bluesy Rock (Sunday) and everything in between. We would just describe ourselves, if anything, as an Indie Rock band seasoned with a hint of retro.
