Julian Fleisher

Julian Fleisher is a singer, writer, producer and performer living in New York. With his Rather Big Band, he has performed with the likes of Jennifer Holiday, Martha Plimpton, Molly Ringwald, Michael Feinstein, Justin Vivian Bond, Kenny Mellman, Bridget Everett, Lauren Graham, Tonya Pinkins and Diana Krall. He recently appeared as George Davis in Gabe Kahane’s February House at The Public Theater, as the Cat in Stephin Merritt's Coraline at MCC and he is a member of Elevator Repair Service. Julian wrote the music for the plays Almost, Maine and The Performers on Broadway and he is the composer/lyricist of the new musical Measure of Success with librettist Kirsten Guenther, which has received grants and residencies from The Rockefeller Brothers, The Orchard Project, The Lark and the Peter S. Reed Foundation. A native of Baltimore and a graduate of Yale, Julian produced CDs for himself, Kiki & Herb and Ana Gasteyer, among others, but he began his professional career as a writer — he's the author of many books on the subjects of grammar, self-improvement and vocabulary from Random House as well as The Drag Queens of New York: An Illustrated Field Guide (Riverhead). A genuine "renaissance man", Fleisher draws on a wealth of varied experiences to undress the American songbook (as well as his guests) in a fresh, quirky and entertaining way. As the editors of iTunes Music wrote of his latest CD, Finally (Modern Records), “It’s as if Fleisher can get away with anything. “ julianfleisher.com / @JulianFlei
