An up and coming drummer in San Diego, Julien Cantelm is highly sought after for his versatile and creative styles. Born into a musical family, Cantelm’s journey into music began at a young age, when he first picked up violin at age five before moving on to drums and electric guitar. Equally adept at jazz, funk, rock, Cuban, and Brazilian styles of music, Cantelm has performed with several notable artists, including Sheila E., Mario Gonzalez, John Scofield, Peter Sprague, and Pete Escovedo. Cantelm joined the Danny Green Trio in 2010, and he recorded on Green’s highly acclaimed 2012 release A Thousand Ways Home and 2014 release After The Calm. Cantelm also performs with guitarist Dusty Brough and is featured on his 2014 release, Tortoise in the Presence of a Goldfish.
