Biography

Julian Lennon is a modern-day Renaissance man — a singer-songwriter and musician, actor, documentary film producer, philanthropist, and, as of late, fine-art photographer. Beloved by fans around the world for his beautifully crafted, melody-minded albums, Lennon released his sixth solo album, the self-produced Everything Changes, in the UK on September 26th, 2011, through British independent label Conehead Management Ltd. He also continues to pursue his love of photography, encouraged by the success of his first-ever exhibition, Timeless, which took place in New York City in 2010.

Born in Liverpool to late Beatle John Lennon and Cynthia Powell, Lennon was given his first guitar by his father at age 11 and formed his first band at age 13 with school friend Justin Clayton, who has since played on each of Lennon’s albums. “Justin and I spent all our time learning the classic rock and roll songs, like ‘Roll Over Beethoven,’ Lennon recalls. “As I got older, I began to listen to the Beatles more carefully and became fascinated by the intelligence that went into their songwriting — the arrangements, melodies, and lyrics, which was great as I began to write my own songs. Crafting a great song is always my final goal.”

Though Lennon was also interested in pursuing acting (and was offered an education through the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company), he decided to stick with music. “I’d fallen madly in love with being able to play three or four chords, and everybody standing up and yelling and screaming,” he says. “The simplicity and ease of it drove me toward a career in music more than anything else.”
