David Julia (22) is a guitarist, singer-songwriter, and entertainer from Central Florida. David is one of our original TVBS scholarship recipients that we have watched grow from a teenager into a professional young musician. He was one of the "I Knew You When" who has become "I Know You Now". Its been so much fun watching him grow and mature into a true professional musician.
He began his professional career playing at his hometown Italian restaurant at only ten years old. By 13, David was playing the Blues all over the state of Florida. From regionally touring to competing and performing in the Memphis-based Blues Foundations International Blues Challenge four years in a row,
David Julia is an up and coming force in the country’s Blues scene. David released his EP, Simple Things, in 2016, consisting of four original works and one cover. His first album, Inspired, produced by Mike Zito and released on the VizzTone Record label, debuted in 2018. The title “Inspired” is paying tribute to the Blues masters whose recordings he has learned from. David has been personally touched by the current generation of musicians who have taught, befriended, encouraged, and helped him along the way. He credits his success to the unwavering support of his family, and thanks them for always pushing him to follow his passion.
