Julian Marshall

Following education at Dartington Hall School and The Royal College of Music, Julian found international chart success with the bands Marshall Hain, The Flying Lizards and Eye to Eye.

A new chapter as a mature composer of longer-form work (Out of the Darkness, The Angel in the Forest) began in 2009 and today composition takes a central position in his creative life.

Julian has a wealth of experience as a songwriter, composer, teacher, lecturer, mentor/coach and musician. He is currently a Teaching Fellow at ICMP, London and he divides his time between teaching there, running a thriving creative coaching/mentoring practice and composing.

Julian has a long-held passion for engaged philosophical and spiritual enquiry.  This has taken form via particular interests in transformational theory and techniques, religious philosophy, integral theory, Zen Buddhism, psychotherapy and non-dualism.

His new venture The Rupa Ensemble (inaugural concerts Autumn 2018), an octet of outstanding, stylistically agile singers especially adept in singing Julian’s music, offers a vehicle for bringing all Julian’s primary interests together.

He is published by Novello and Co.

Julian is married to glass artist Arabella Marshall, they have two adult children, Gabriel and Solomon, and they live in Suffolk, England.
