Julian Fauth fell in love with blues music at the age of 6 when his dad brought home a blues compilation LP called 'The Golden Blues Hour', which had been discarded by the radio station where he worked. In the mid-1990s Julian came to Toronto and started noodling at various bars in Kensington Market. Eventually, that noodling led to gigs across Canada, the US, in Russia and Cuba, and a string of releases on Electro-Fi Records. His 2009 CD, ‘Ramblin’ Son’, won the Juno Award for Best Blues album.

His solo CD, ‘Blue Smoke’ was released in 2014.
