Julien-K is the musical brainchild of Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck, a duo whose friendship goes back 13+ years and spans multiple bands, several chart topping hits, hundreds of grueling tour stops, several video game & movie scores and a burgeoning portfolio of restaurant properties. After meeting through a mutual friend, they had their first adventures together in the death-pop band Orgy, while simultaneously writing massive hits for others (like Korn’s breakthrough single “Blind”).
