about

Julian Velard Brooklyn, New York

Julian Velard is songwriter, piano man, and native New Yorker. a biting 21st century wit in a stylish package—think Harry Connick, Jr. with the panache of a Brooklyn hipster—recalling Stephen Sondheim or Randy Newman at the peak of their talents.

His comedic timing and musical stylings have made him a regular on The Howard Stern Show and NPR’s Ask Me Another.

Track Name: The Mighty Lin
Happy couple from Taiwan
Came to Cali made a family in the USA
Little kid named Jeremy
Father taught him shooting hoops at the YMCA
Man that boy could play
They told him, “You’re not cut out for the game”
But Jeremy kept on going now he’s going all the way

You never seen nothing like the Mighty Lin
All he ever does win
Don’t let him get the ball or you’re going down

You better get ready for the Mighty Lin
He gonna slash and drive and dive and spin
If you still don’t who I’m talking about
Pretty soon you will when the Mighty Lin comes to town

Captain of his High School team
Voted Nothern California player of the year
Made it to the Ivy League
Shattered every single record in his Harvard career
The boy knows no fear

They told him “You Better get your MBA”
Now he’s starting for the New York Knicks and lighting up the NBA

You never seen nothing like the Mighty Lin
All he ever does win
Don’t let him get the ball or you’re going down

You better get ready for the Mighty Lin
He gonna slash and drive and dive and spin
If you don’t who I’m talking about
Pretty soon you will when the Mighty Lin comes to town
